I played my first song to Khayyam Sahib: Talat Aziz on composing for 'Majaz'

MUMBAI: Ghazal maestro Talat Aziz is debuting as a music director with the biopic film 'Majaz' that will release on 20 January 2017.

Talking about it, Talat Aziz stated, "The lodestone of 'Majaz' is its music. I have tried my best to do justice as the composer. When I composed the first song, I played it to Khayyam Sahib, who is very close to me and he said whatever I did was with rightfulness.”

Majaz has 11 songs, composed by Talat Aziz. He has lent his voice to the songs in the film. Also, Sonu Nigam and Alka Yagnik have lent their voices in one track each.

The lyrics are an adaption of Majaz’s poetry, also penned by Khalid Faridi. The background score is done by Iqbal Darbar.

The songs are obviously Gazal and Sufi based songs with some contemporary touch,” added Aziz.
