Raghav has been talking openly on Twitter for weeks now about his involvement in a project with prolific film composer A.R. Rahman. The opportunity has been a dream come true for Raghav, who says, “Of all the glorious moments in my musical journey working with A.R. Rahman ranks at the top.”
The project is a song called Ishq Shava for Bollywood film Jab Tak Hai Jaan directed by the late Yash Chopra and written and produced by Aditya Chopra under their production banner Yash Raj Films. The background score and soundtrack for the film were composed by A.R. Rahman. ‘Ishq Shava’ is a duet sung by Raghav and Indian playback singer Shilpa Rao.
Director Yash Chopra, known as India’s king of celluloid romance, died unexpectedly on October 21, 2012, just weeks after announcing he would not direct any more movies. He was 80. Bollywood continues to mourn the loss of a master film maker.
Jab Tak Hai Jaan is scheduled for release on November 13, 2012.
