About the music, Vishal gave a little sneak peek, “It being a film that is trying to stay very true to its genre there is no real sort of song and dance in the course of the film. There is romance between Tiger and Zoya, but they are husband and wife, so it is a more real love. A love that has seen life and survived life. In the film they have been together for eight years so the love song needs to have that intimacy. One hopes that we have managed to do that. One hopes the song comes out and you, as a listener feel that intimacy. That is when we know we have done it.
“Then of course there are a few action themes and the title track of the film. Then there is this one big dance number at the end. That is quite special for us because it is about more than just boy and girl and love and dancing; it is a song about everything the film is about. It’s about bringing people together. Yet, its an all-out party, and the hope is that it will play in every club, in every festival here and everywhere else.”
Adding, “That [Tiger Zinda Hai] was a big ask. You know, the songs are promotional vehicles for the film because the first contact of the public with the film, after the trailer, are the songs. As step one, you do need to satisfy that. But you also want to be true to the film. You want to say all the things that Ali is trying to say, in the songs as well. Fingers crossed.”
