Music composer Shantanu Moitra is “very happy” with his work in the forthcoming Aamir Khan-starrer PK and hopes people will love it.

“I am very happy to have used the classic waltz, lyrical, lilting music and duets for PK,” he told PTI during his visit to Kolkata for the launch of his debut book in English On the Wings of Music.

“My use of music in PK goes with my belief that a rich baritone like Nat King Cole has an eternal appeal,” said Shantanu, who has previously composed music for Parineeta, Lage Raho Munnabhai, Hazaron Khwahishen Aisi, Madras Cafe and 3 Idiots.

“The experience of composing for PK has been excellent,” said the music composer, who has won the National Film Award this year for best music direction for Tamil film Na Bangarru Taali.

PK is directed by Raj Kumar Hirani and also stars Anushka Sharma, Sanjay Dutt and Sushant Singh Rajput.
