Raju Singh has completed his 100th film in background scores with Ek Villain. He has earlier scored background music for films like CityLights (2014), Murder 3 (2013), Yamla Pagla Deewana 2 (2013), Raaz 3 (2012), We Are Family (2010), Life In A Metro (2007), Page 3 (2005), Ishq Vishk (2003) and Chandni Bar (2001), to name a few.
Explaining the importance of background music, Singh says, “Though most dismiss background score as something insignificant, it’s the actual element that communicates the director’s vision. It makes an impact on the scene. In Ek Villain, the background score puts across the darkness in the romance.”
Interestingly, Raju and director Mohit Suri have been friends for long and have worked together on Zeher (2005), Raaz – The Mystery Continues (2009), Murder 2 (2011), Aashiqui 2 (2013) and now, Ek Villain. Raju says, “Mohit has always amazed me with his understanding of relationships. What he brings forth on screen, not many can, even after years.” Adds Mohit, “Raju works meticulously on the background music. Most importantly, when I complete my films, as a director, I feel alone. And in such times, Raju stands by me working with me on the post-production.”
Besides giving background scores, Raju has even sung songs — Rooh Mein picturised on the late Farooq Sheikh for Club 60 and Zabaan Jale Hai for Dedh Ishqiya.
