Recently the critically acclaimed movie “The Tashkent Files” got a National award and on to ask how he was feeling, we contacted music composer Manik Batra (Part of the trio ‘Satya Manik Afsar’ who created music for The Tashkent Files).
Manik Batra said that they were happy and feeling proud that their Movie “The Tashkent Files” won two National Awards yesterday. He thanked Director Vivek Agnihotri and quoted, “thanks to Director Vivek Agnihotri for believing in us that we can justify the film with the desired background score because we knew that film would be very intense, although the film had no big stars.”
Manik said that they were sure that Film will make a mark in the acclaimed films category as they had so many National Award-winning actors like Mithun da, Nasir Sahab, Pankaj Tripathi, Shweta Prasad Basu, and Pallavi Joshi Ji.
When asked about upcoming works, Manik said that they are very pleased to announce that they released a debutant young singer AMITESH SHUKLA with a Punjabi single YAAR MERE DONALI, Produced by CCA Entertainment, Tejas Enterprises and Leitmotif Records and is releasing on their music company Leitmotif Records.
“I (Manik) did the rap for this song and also featured it for the first time. The song is available on all prominent audio streaming sites and also on our YouTube channel.”
Manik said that they’re very sure that the song will also become a hit as everyone in the cast including Amitesh, Vikash Diljani (lyricist) had the passion to work.
Manik said, “We are a strong believer that a hit doesn’t always require stardom what it requires the most is passion to achieve which was there in these Boys.”
While ending the conversation Manik left a message for newcomers saying, “We Satya Manik Afsar always welcome newcomers be it Filmmakers who want Songs or Background Music or fresh Singers or even lyrics writers who have the passion to work.”
