Vishal-Shekhar protégé to debut

Vishal-Shekhar protégé Raghu Dixit to finally make a Bollywood debut with Yash Raj Films’ new youth films studio, Y-Films’ Mujhse Fraaandship Karoge

Raghu Dixit has been on the music circuit for quite a long time, known more for his bohemian dress sense than his music. He is familiar in Kannada cinema and has many hits to his credit too, but Bollywood has always been off-radar for him, thanks to his unique musical genre that blends South Indian influences with rock music to create a unique sound. Raghu is a protégé of Bollywood’s Vishal-Shekhar, who have finally found him a place in B-town – he has composed music for Yash Raj Films’ new youth films studio, Y-Films’ rom-com, set against the backdrop of social networking. Interestingly, this one is titled Mujhse Fraaandship Karoge, a cheesy take off on an earlier YRF release and the popular internet jargon used to make friend requests. Directed by Nupur Asthana, the film launches many new faces and could be India’s answer to David Fincher’s The Social Network, Bollywood ishtyle. Raghu’s music should be a high-point. It will be fun to see how the song and dance routine will fit into an internet tale, though in Bolly-land, sab kuch possible hai!
