Known to be inclined towards musical experimentation, Bollywood music composer Amit Trivedi is one of those composers whose music is accepted by critics and fans alike.

After the success of the soundtracks of films such as “Bombay Velvet” and “Shaandaar” last year, the National Award-winning composer delivered the smash hit, “Yeh Fitoor Mera,” from the movie “Fitoor” earlier this year. He is now gearing up for the soundtrack release of “Udta Punjab” and a few other films.

Trivedi is also currently touring the country with singer Neeti Mohan and his live band. International Business Times India caught up with him on Friday as he finished charming the audience with chartbusters like “Yeh Fitoor Mera,” “Zinda” and “Emotional Atyachaar” at a concert held at International Tech Park, Bengaluru.

“Yeh Fitoor Mera” was perhaps one of the highest points of Trivedi’s performance on April 29. As soon as the band started playing the lead intro to the song, one could see the crowd waving the light from their cell phones in unison to the song’s rhythm.

“When Abhishek Kapoor came to me with the script of ‘Fitoor,’ which is based on the Charles Dickens novel ‘Great Expectations,’ I connected with it instantly. The film had to have a soundtrack that reflected the absolute passion of a man who is madly in love with a girl. Be it with the lyrics (written by Swanand Kirkire) or with the music, we tried to achieve that,” recollects Trivedi, who states The Beatles, Sting, Michael Jackson, RD Burman and AR Rahman to be some of his major musical influences.
