Rahul Ranade, Creative Director of the show shared his sentiments, “My idea was to go beyond the routine orchestra drill. The Bengal Tiger promises to bring forth the most popular songs along with some rare and unheard melodies composed by each of the gems. The show is for everyone who loves Indian Film Music or quality music in general. While we have regaled their melodies for decades now, it would be important to know the process and journey behind each composition. I also think, the current generation needs to be aware and educated about the glorious musical history of Indian Film Music. As a die-hard and deriving musical inspiration all throughout my career from them, I am glad to pay a tribute to them”
