Amaal Mallik is a guest composer for Chef
The composer has contributed a love song for the Saif Ali Khan film sung by his brother Armaan Malik with lyrics by Rashmi Vizag
Amaal Mallik has composed a "very touching and meaningful" song for Saif Ali Khan-starrer Chef, a remake of the Hollywood film of the same name.
Titled Tere mere darmiyaan, the love song has been sung by Amaal's brother Armaan Malik and the lyrics have been penned by Rashmi Vizag.
Talking about his experience of working with the song's music producer Abhijit Vaghani, Amaal said in a statement: "He is a really talented music producer and understands the composer's vision. I love the fact that he will fight for something new and unheard, yet when a song needs simplicity he just lets it breathe, keeping things innovative yet simple. It took us 10-12 straight days of no sleep to envision this song. When we cracked it, the feeling was surreal."
Picturised on Saif, the song shows the actor's character understanding things, and thinking about where he went wrong and how he wants to make things right. The track is a blend of Indian music with alternative rock undertones; instruments like Chinese flutes and banjos have been used.
Commenting on it, lyricist Virag says, "This is my first release after 11 months because I wanted to only work on a great song. Tere mere... is a song that has multiple levels - father-son relationship, husband-wife relationship, a man and his dreams, a man and his career. A lot had to be weaved into one song and we did it with ease."
Armaan describes the lyrics as "very touching and meaningful", and adds, "The song has been very close to my heart since the time I first heard it. I even had goosebumps while recording the song."
