Bhubaneswar: With more than 1,000 songs to his credit, music director and composer Prem Anand has achieved a lot in a short duration of over a decade. As a music composer who started his career in Ollywood in 2007, Anand today is one of the most successful music directors in the Odia film industry.

On Tuesday, Anand was at OMMCOM NEWS studio and shared highlights of his career and also about his secret to success. Anand is known for contemporary and romantic genres which have been melodiously exhibited in musical hits such as Biju Babu, Nimki, Tu Mo Love Story, to name a few.

Recently, this successful Odia musician composed music for a Bollywood film, Love U Turn which has been directed by Harish Raut. The trailer of this film was released few days back.

"It is always my attempt to grasp the subject (of the movie), situation and lyrics before venturing into a project. Whether it is a Bollywood film or and Odia movie, my style of composition remains the same," said Anand.

He adds, after getting into the project with heart and mind, it is not a difficult affair to adapt to the industry (Ollywood or Bollywood). However, the spectrum of audience is broad in case of a Bollywood film, so a music director needs to keep the taste of the listeners in mind.

"It is a good opportunity for an Odia music director to work in Bollywood. I am happy about it and also know that it is a challenge to live upto the expectation of the people who appreciate my music. I seek their blessings and love," he added.

Anand attributed his success in the film industry to Lord Jagannath, Godess Sarala and Jagadguru Shankaracharya. "My fans, friends and family have been of big support who have also inspired me to work hard and succeed."
