MUMBAI: Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions has signed a music deal with music giant T-Series for its forthcoming movie Short Term Shaadi.
This is the first time ever that the two companies have joined hands. Prior to this, the music of Dharma Productions’ movies was released by Sony Music India.
Short Term Shaadi stars Imran Khan, Kareena Kapoor, Randhir Kapoor, Boman Irani and Ram Kapoor among others.
“I have always loved the films made by Karan Johar, not only for their content and aesthetic appeal, but also for their beautiful music, which has always been their major strength. We are delighted to have acquired the music rights of Short Term Shaadi. And we hope that this is just the beginning of a long creative association,” said T-Series chairman and managing director Bhushan Kumar.
According to T-Series, the company currently has the audio-video copyrights over 40 forthcoming Hindi films.
Produced by Karan Johar and directed by Shakun Batra, Short Term Shaadi is an out and out romantic comedy that has Imran playing a unique role – that of a highly conservative, fussy architect, with a rigid attitude. He falls in love with Kareena Kapoor, a liaison which changes him completely. Kareena, on the other hand, plays a hairstylist who teaches him about life and love. The film takes place in a compressed time frame of a little more than a week and deals with how my character changes within that short span of time. It has been shot in Las Vegas and India.
