Composer Amaal Mallik has recorded with the Macedonian Symphonic Orchestra for the Saina Nehwal biopic. The recording was conducted during the ongoing lockdown. 

"The Saina Nehwal film's soundtrack is one of the most prestigious and powerful scores I have worked on. We haven't done something so beautiful like this before, something so varied like multi-genre," said Amaal.

The biopic stars Parineeti Chopra as the ace shuttler. The film is directed by Amole Gupte. Speaking about the soundtrack, Amaal added, "It's got Indian melody and lyrics at heart, but the Macedonian Symphonic Orchestra has added another world of dynamics and beauty to the arrangement. It is a fusion of extreme genres, a mix of something new and fresh. Each musician has added such a beautiful vibe. We recorded around 30 strings, 10 brass, and many more on Skype. It is the most fulfilling experience -- doing music the live way in such difficult times.” 

In the time of social distancing, Amaal said that the 40-member orchestra came together despite being in their houses for two to three months. "They played so beautifully on the score and songs. I am thankful to everyone associated with the project. It will be a special soundtrack.”

Amaal has worked as a composer on films like Jai Ho, M.S. Dhoni: The Untold Story, Badla and others.
