Mumbai,   Bollywood composer Uttam Singh, known for his work in movies like Pinjar and Gadar: Ek Prem Katha, has composed music of the TV show Kyun Utthe Dil Chhod Aaye.

The show is a story of three girls in 1947 Amrit, Vashma and Radha. This story begins in pre-partition era and brings forth the girl's dreams, hope, aspirations and newfound love.

The city of Lahore is being recreated for the show.

"When I was approached for the show to create the music, I was really excited and my excitement reached a level higher when I was told that the story would be of the 1940s era, " said Singh.

"The pre-independence will be the backdrop with the love story of three girls. I was all set to make the music for this show memorable and something which everyone can hum. When I created the title track of the show only two names (of singers) came to my mind -- Bela Shende and Javed Ali. With their melodious voices, the essence of the song has only increased, " he added.

Bela expressed her excitement and said: "The reason I picked the song was because I am a firm believer in love, and I am fan of love stories. The best part of it was when I got to know I will be working with Javed ji and Uttam ji again. In past, I had a wonderful time collaborating with them. Both of them are respectable and talented people of the music industry and working with them is such a privilege for me."

Javed is happy about the collaboration too.

"The reason I took up the song was because I love the way all the three girls are being portrayed and how their love stories unfold, " said the singer.

"Kyun Utthe Dil Chhod Aaye" will premiere on January 25 on Sony Entertainment Television.
