The music composer trio of Shankar- Ehsaan- Loy have been roped in along with lyricist Amitabh Bhattacharya. ”We wanted the music to have a national appeal. We roped in Shankar- Ehsaan- Loy because they understand north as well as southern sensibilities when it comes to music”, the director of the film, Sujeeth said. He also shared the teaser poster of the film on twitter, have a look :
