Music director Anu Malik showered praises on JP Dutta at the musical event of ‘Paltan’ and thanked the director for harnessing his talent over the past 21 years.

The music composer and filmmaker first joined hands 21 years back for ‘Border’ and then for the 2003 movie ‘LoC Kargil’.

While talking about their journey Anu Malik said, “I would not have been standing here without JP Dutta.”

He further added, “My music has been possible only because of the madness that I created which was harnessed properly and controlled by JP Dutta.”

The musical event was held on the completion of India’s biggest war trilogy. The event saw singer Sonu Nigam crooning “Main Zinda Hoon” from the movie.

Anu Malik confessed that the emotional track would not have been possible without Sonu Nigam’s voice.

After creating ripples with their award-winning association in ‘Border’ and ‘LoC Kargil’, the musical trio of Javed Akhtar, Anu Malik, and Sonu Nigam collaborated once again after a span of almost 15 years with ‘Paltan’. The legendary team is all set to revive the magic for the third film of JP Dutta’s war trilogy.

With power-packed performances, ‘Paltan’ promises to tell the riveting yet untold story of the bravest of Indian soldiers who fought the Chinese in the Nathu La clashes on 1967.

The film stars an ensemble cast featuring Jackie Shroff, Arjun Rampal, Harshvardhan Rane, Gurmeet Choudhary, Abdul Qadir Amin, Sonu Sood, Sonal Chauhan, Esha Gupta, Monica Gill, Rohit Roy, Siddhant Kapoor, Luv Sinha, and Dipika Kakar.

Presented by Zee Studios and produced by JP Dutta Films, ‘Paltan’ is slated to release on 7 September.
