Some UK producers just offer something different, Mukhtar Sahota is one of those producers. He has taken the soundtrack to the film ‘Ishq My Religion’ and truly made it his own.
The pressure must have been on Mukhtar Sahota as he was working with some huge names for this Gurdeep Dhillon film. When we say big names we mean rich and uber talent Punjabi singers such as Arif Lohar, Sunidhi Chauhan, Mika Singh, Sonu Nigam and the fantastic Nooran Sisters.
To make a soundtrack your own is hard, the film dictates the mood and the direction of the songs, so impose your own style and direction on them is extremely testing. Mukhtar Sahota has managed to sell his own vision of the songs and married it to the beauty of the film with some superb creativity. All four of the songs below deserve a listen.
KALEH RANG – Arif Lohar & Sunidhi Chauhan
ISHQ DIAN PEERAN – Nooran Sisters
LAUNG GAWACHA REPLY – Mika Singh & Sunidhi Chauhan
CHORI CHORI – Sunidhi Chauhan & Sonu Nigam
