Sanjay_GuptaMumbai, Oct 31 (IANS) Producer-director Sanjay Gupta wants estranged wife Anu back at any cost. He has dedicated the three-volume soundtrack of his forthcoming film 'Dus Kahaniyan' to her as the 'last desperate call of the heart'.

'I am hoping she would hear Gulzar saab's poetry in it as the call of my heart. This is my last desperate call of the heart to Anu,' Gupta told IANS.

Asked whether this is the mellowing and aging of Sanjay Gupta, he said: 'I guess I've matured. I've always wanted to collaborate with Gulzar saab. I'm his biggest fan. And this is my chance to get poetry back into our music.

'I feel I've got bored with the item songs and it's time to bring poetry back to our film music. That's why I've dedicated the album to my wife. Every poem that Gulzar saab has selected for the album is a tribute to my love for my wife.' Sanjay Leela Bansali

After Sanjay Leela Bhansali's 'Saawariya', the 'Dus Kahaniyan' soundtrack takes Hindi film music away from the song-and-'dunce' formula. Gupta has always taken film music to another level - item songs and Sufi-rock tracks came into their own with his 'Musafir' and 'Kaante'.

But now the filmmaker is bored with the established sound and in 'Dus Kahaniyan' he has heralded a new format of presentation to go with a new sound.

'The whole web of film music has become too jaded. We need to spin a new kind of sound to save film music from stagnancy. I've used two totally new composers, Bappi Lahiri's son Bappa and Gaurav Dasgupta, besides Anand Raj Anand and Shafqat Ali Khan.

'Both the new boys are amazingly innovative in sound. For the first time there are three CDs in the pack. The first CD contains the songs. The second contains their remix.'

But it's the third CD that really holds optimum interest. 'I've got Gulzar saab's poems recited in the voices of the entire cast of the 10 stories of 'Dus Kahaniyan'.

'These voices include Naseeruddin Shah, Shabana Azmi, Nana Patekar, Sudhanshu Pandey and Neha Dhupia. The poems have been selected by Gulzar saab to suit the individual stories and characters.'
