MUMBAI: The first look of UTV Motion Pictures‘ and Red Chillies Entertainments‘ Chennai Express created a frenzy amongst fans. To take that excitement further the much awaited music of Chennai Express was launched on Wednesday at a star studded event in Mumbai in the presence of actress Deepika Padukone, Shah Rukh Khan - actor and producer, Red Chillies Entertainments, Ronnie Screwvala - MD Disney UTV, Bhushan Kumar - chairman and MD T-Series director Rohit Shetty and music director duo Vishal-Shekhar.

Songs released from the movie are already topping the popular music charts.

The album boasts of an array of 8 songs from foot tapping dance numbers like ‘1234 Get on the dance floor‘ and ‘Ready Steady Po‘ to a soulful rendition like ‘Titli‘, from love songs to total entertainment ones like ‘Chipak Chipak Ke‘, ‘Tera Rasta Chhodon Na‘, ‘Kashmir Main,Tu Kanyakumari‘ and even the title track ‘Chennai Express‘ which is specially sung by S P Balasubramaniam. The lyrics for the album have been written by Amitabh Bhattacharya.

"Chennai Express has been a reunion of sorts for me. My first film was with SRK as a co-star, Manish Malhotra did my costumes and Vishal-Shekhar composed the music. I love all the songs and the way Vishal-Shekhar have beautifully amalgamated the theme and the tracks. Titli is my favourite one," said actress Deepika Padukone.

Commenting on the music Shah Rukh Khan said, "Music breathes life into a film and Vishal-Shekhar have exactly done that with the songs of Chennai Express. I have always had a great working experience with them. There‘s a song for everyone in the album. My personal favourites are Tera Raasta Chodu Na and Titli. Hope you‘ve liked them too!"

"Chennai Express‘ music is the film. Love, humour, action, comedy, it‘s all in the songs. Also it is a genuine homage to South Indian culture / music," said music directors Vishal and Shekhar.

"I am very excited about the music of our film because of Vishal and Shekhar. They have put together a brilliant album keeping the theme of the film in mind. Having worked with them for Golmaal 1, I am very glad that we have come together for Chennai Express too," said director Rohit Shetty.

"It is always a great pleasure to work with Shah Rukh Khan. T-Series has been associated with him right from his first home production Main Hoon Na. SRK has a great taste for music which is evident from Don 2, Ra.One, Om Shanti Om and now Chennai Express. Chennai Express is a great mixture of various flavours and melodies collated amazingly by Vishal-Shekhar," said T-Series chairman and MD Bhushan Kumar.

Chennai Express will hit theatres worldwide on Eid - 8 August 2013.
