In the words of lyricist Raj Shekhar, “The experience of working with the Goodluck Jerry’s musical crew was incredible. It was a challenging yet exciting experience. Many from the music fraternity have pointed out that this album reminds them a lot of Dev D, Delhi Belly, Gangs of Wasseypur. The album has a very youthful and contemporary vibe. The whole musical cast did their best to explore the lyrical landscape. This album is very different from the work I have done in the past. When people think of me and the lyrics that I write they always think of melodious love songs. My audience was quick to notice, and they have been supportive of this new album.”
He further added, “Jahnvi Kapoor is seen in the film speaking a Bihari accent and being from Bihar myself, she did an amazing job at it. Working with Aanand L. Rai has always been a pleasure, and I have started my career with him, and I’m very thankful to him. I am very excited about what’s to come next.”
Some of his upcoming projects besides Goodluck Jerry include Bhakshak (Red Chillies), Mismatched 2 (Netflix), an untitled film with Colour Yellow Pictures and a film with Laxman Utekar. Stay tuned for more exciting musical lyrics by Raj Shekhar.
