Before even diving into the shoes of a filmmaker, Vishal Bhardwaj has always been a music composer by heart. The director who has earned 3 national awards for his movies had gained recognition for his music with Gulzar’s Maachis.
Now, the filmmaker has launched a music label called VB Music and to commence on that journey he has released his first song Dhoop Ane Do.
Penned by Gulzar and sung by the super talented Rekha Bhardwaj and Vishal Bhardwaj, this soulful track was composed during the lockdown where various musicians can be seen playing different instruments.
The music video shows stills of the underprivileged, who have been severely hit by the coronavirus-induced lockdown and basically talks about this pandemic has changed people’s lives.
Netizens lauded this melancholic composition.
