Amazon Prime Video’s latest release titled Bandish Bandits has been winning hearts of everyone for its beautiful story line and how beautifully the music has been presented in the series. One of the most exciting part of the series is that even the millennials have given a thunderous response to the classical music which has made the entire team happy.

The musical trio of Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy share their experience in making the beautiful tracks for the series.

Shankar Mahadevan says, "We have done many projects and many genres of music, but a musically enriching experience that we had for Bandish bandits I doubt we had it in any other project as this is such a mammoth project which includes pop music, trance, Bandish is there, Bhajan, Fusion, you name it and it's there. What we three represent as a music of a country, we gave it all in this project. Thanks to Amritpal Singh Bindra, Anand Tiwari, Amazon Prime Videos, for really believing and having the faith in a project like this. Since the past couple of days of its release, the response has been amazing, tremendous and what is surprising me is the youngsters reacting to classical music that is so encouraging."

Shankar further adds, "Last but not the least Ritwik and Shreya they are just out of this world. I think that they are going to become big big big stars for sure."

Talking about Shivam Mahadevan Shankar says, "We are very happy that he sang two main songs in the series, Varna Sajan Bin and the other is Chedkaniya and the response has been phenomenal. Again thanks to Ehsaan and Loy for allowing him."

The ten-part series stars rising talent Ritwik Bhowmik and Shreya Chaudhry alongside veteran actors including Naseeruddin Shah, Atul Kulkarni Kunaal Roy, Kapur, Sheeba Chaddha and Rajesh Tailang.

Produced and created by Amritpal Singh Bindra and directed by Anand Tiwari, the all-new Amazon Original Series follows the love story of two young performers from very different musical backgrounds. So tune into Amazon Prime Video and binge-watch the musical drama as it’s streaming already!
