Deepa Bhatia, the writer, director and producer of the docuseries said, “With First Act, both Amaal and I were looking to create songs that reflected the positive self-belief the characters have, as well as the tough times they go through. With the score, the aim was to create a quiet, sensitive mood, that felt organic and real and just flows with the situations of the characters. Amaal has thrilled me with this nuanced approach to the score. Amole is so close the soul and subject of the series, that his depth combined with Amaal’s musical range and the talented team he put together has resulted in such beautiful tracks, leaving a lasting impression on the listeners’ minds and hearts.”

Talking about the album, Music Composer Amaal Mallik expressed, “For me, music is more than just stringing words and notes together – it’s a feeling, a retrospection of life. It needs to have an impact on the listener. Collaborating with Deepa and Amole on this special, thought-provoking series has been an absolute pleasure, and their passion is truly inspiring. When I compose a song, I believe simple words can reflect the hard truth of the story and that’s what I tried to achieve with First Act’s music as well. I got an opportunity to experiment with diverse genres and collaborate with different artists, to curate this music album which I am so proud of. I am overwhelmed with the reactions we have received for the tracks, and I am so excited to launch the album, which will now be available on various music streaming platforms.” 

“I am genuinely excited about the launch of this music album, which brings together a collection of truly remarkable and diverse tracks that, I believe, have deeply connected with the audience. Amaal is well-known for his impressive body of work, and he has once again showcased his magic with compositions for a show centered on the impactful theme of child artists’ experiences in the entertainment industry. Working closely as a lyricist, with Amaal scoring the music and singing too, was such a joyous experience,” shared Amol Gupte, creative producer, for the docuseries.
