Mumbai: "It was just a long vacation." This is how composer Sandeep Chowta describes the long gap in working with filmmaker Ram Gopal Verma (RGV), for whom has scored the background music for ‘Not A Love Story’ after ‘Company’ in 2002.
"Our last film was `Company`. I have always been a great admirer of his films. We just took a vacation and it became a long vacation that`s all," Chowta told reporters, who also gave the music of ‘Sayta’,’Shool’ and ‘Jungle’.
He said he was chasing his dreams internationally and recently scored the music for Hollywood film ‘Break Away’, which is scheduled to release in September.
"I have been doing a lot of things in between internationally. I was chasing my dreams outside India."
"I just did a Hollywood film `Break Away` and it`s going to release in September. We have big Hollywood stars. We only have Anupam Kher from here. It`s a film on Ice Hockey. I was busy doing that for the last six months," said Chowta who had also given the background music of ‘Housefull’.
Asked how this rebinding happened after so many years, he said: "Ramu and I were in touch. He just wanted to show me the promos of the film. I liked it. I think it`s destiny."
Chowta maintained that now he has a lot to offer to Bollywood. "I have learnt a lot in the last nine years and I am here to unload (knowledge). I have something new to offer now," said Chowta.
