After four months busy schedule, Pritam is now taking a break from Bollywood for a year or more. He has composed the music for various recent hits such as Jab Harry Met Sejal, Jagga Jasoos, Tubelight and Behn Hogi Teri. With such grueling time, he has decided to take a break for a year or year and a half. While the movies he worked with didn’t receive good reviews from.the critics, the music was appreciated.
The music composer said he learned a lot from these movies and will be back after a break. Certainly, this is not a short break. Pritam took this matter to Facebook and made the public announcement regarding his partial departure from the industry.
“With the release of Jab Harry Met Sejal, the 3 most grueling months of my life come to an end. It’s been exhausting and challenging with 4 films, over 25 songs, over 20 musicals and background music of Jagga Jasoos all happening back to back. How I wish that the releases were spaced out but nonetheless it’s been a personally inspiring ride. Also learned a lot of new lessons in this journey.”
Pritam needed that break because of the hectic schedule he participated in. Jab Harry Met Sejal’s songs were launched separately at different events and turned out to some hummable numbers. Above all, he has promised his fans to make a return soon to Bollywood with some more melodies. He wrote:
“Thank you all for your constant love and support. I had decided last year not to sign on any new projects till the completion of JHMS and with its release, I can take a small break and will come back to take on new projects, as no matter how hard, challenging and sleep depriving the process is, this is what I love. Thank you guys again, will see you in a year or year and a half with some new films.”
Recently, his name revolved around a controversy when he rejected to sign a contract for Raabta. He was asked to compose the music for Sushant Singh Rajput and Kriti Senon starred film. He clarified the situation and tried to bury the hatchet by saying:
“I had decided a while back to only do solo composer albums and not have an outside song in my album. In Raabta, producers want to recreate an existing song from the music label as part of promotions so I have decided to not continue with the film and requested the producers to take out my name from the film credits and promotions.”
We don’t have any reports regarding the exact time he will make his return to Bollywood. The reason behind his departure is not specified by him. We wish for his healthy come back before we start missing his music.
