Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy nominated for Karrm Filmfare Marathi Awards

MUMBAI: Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy, the musical trio that recently celebrated the twenty years of composing music together in Bollywood, has finally received the deserved recognition from the Marathi Film industry. Thanks to the trio's contribution for 'Katyar Kaljat Ghusli' and 'Mitwaa', (Shankar Mahadevan, Ehsaan Noorani and Loy Mendosa) SEL has been nominated for 'Best Music' - twice in the same category.

In Katyar Kaljat Ghusli, the trio helmed the music responsibilities with Pandit Jitendra Abhisheki - the original score composer for the play under the same name. For 'Mitwaa', the trio teamed up with Nilesh Moharir, Amitraj and Pankaj Padghan that earned the noted Bollywood composers second nomination under the same category.

The recognition from Marathi industry does not end there, as Shankar Mahadevan received a nomination for 'Best Singer' for the song 'Soor Niragaas Ho' from 'Katyar Kaljat Ghusli'. Shankar Mahadevan, also, earned rave critical reviews for his on-screen character depiction of Pandit Bhanu Shankar Shahstri in 'Katyar Kaljat Ghusli'.

"It's fantastic to have two nominations in The Filmfare Marathi awards' 'Best Music' category. The two soundtracks are different when compared to each other; one's inclined to popular mainstream while other is classical," informed Ehsaan Noorani.

Commenting on the nominations and his acting experience, Shankar Mahadevan said, “It is a very unusual and wonderful feeling altogether. I have done music videos before, but being someone else's character on screen was very new to me. It is a very small supporting role, but people have appreciated it. Being a music composer and singer, the character is very close to my heart.”

Earlier, the trio had bagged awards for Mirchi Music Awards in Telegu industry in the same year (2009) for 'Best Album' and 'Best Song'. asked the singer about his Bollywood ambitions as an actor, the composer replied, “I’m getting a couple of offers but I am a music composer first. I will only act in a feature film if that justifies my persona and my music.”
