He is part of the trio that has created some of the greatest songs of modern Hindi cinema ranging from beautiful ballads, to hard hitting rock, to gorgeous orchestrations and everything in between. That trio is Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy and we are talking about, and with, Ehsaan. The musician once again took time out of his busy schedule to have a chat with BollySpice about all things music, including the Spanish infused Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara, getting Farhan, Hrithik and Abhay to sing, what are some of his favorite songs and so much more! 



How have things been going? 


Been hectic as ever we are busy with the background score of Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara and Aarakshan. I have also been very busy with the promotion of my Fender Signature models, so its been hectic but a lot of fun. 



You have been working on Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara, tell us about the music for the film. 


It's a gorgeous album that we have experimented with a lot of styles like Latin and Bossa and of course there is the Spanish thing since the film is shot in Spain. It has a nice and airy sound to it. 



You tweeted you played a lot of acoustic guitar so will this sound be different from your other albums? 


Well, there is a lot of acoustic guitar on both the background score and on the CD. The background score for me was a lesson, as I had to play all these Spanish things, which I had never played before. On the album we used a couple of other guitar players who are specialists in Bossa Nova and Flamenco. 



Will the songs be more background or lip sync? 


It's a combination of both...there are background songs and lip sync songs too. 



How was it working with Farhan, Abhay and Hrithik to get them to sing the song Senorita? 


All three of them were super to work with. Farhan and Hrithik both have had singing experience and Abhay though new to the singing thing did a very good job. 



Favorite song you all have composed in the last year? 


I think all the songs from ZNMD are favorites. It's one of my favorite albums that I can keep listening to. 



Film you are most looking forward too?
