“The director was looking for a new composer and stumbled upon my international work,” Ricky tells Metrolife. “They wanted one person to compose both the background score as well as the songs,” he adds.

Directed by Sandeep, the movie is a suspense thriller about four call centre employees, who travel from Delhi to Nainital. How different will the music be from his Kannada projects? “It will have a more international feel to it,” answers he. “Plus I will be experimenting a lot more.”

Besides the background score, the movie will have three songs sung by popular Bollywood singers like Sonu Nigam, Sunidhi Chauhan and Kunal Ganjawala. “Bangalored based singer Avinash Chebbi will be singing a song as well,” Ricky informs. “One song is about friendship, while the other song is an item number. The third song is a Sufi song.” But Ricky confirms that he will not be shifting his base to Mumbai. “When I pitched in for the project, one of my conditions was to work from Bangalore,” he says.

Ricky is extremely excited about his second Bollywood project as well. “The production house has signed me for another film called Dil Mein Kuch Hone Laga, which will be a big budget film.” Then there is Ramesh Aravind’s Crazy Kutumba on the Kannada front, where he has given music to four old Kannada poems. “I am quite eager for its release,” he exclaims.
