Mumbai, Jan. 24 -- The distributor of Marvel's superhero film, The Avengers, was reportedly scouting for a popular indie band to compose the Hindi theme song for its India release. They had shortlisted two bands, Euphoria and Agnee, from India, and Pakistani rock outfits Strings and Jal to compose and sing the soundtrack.
Finally, they have roped in Agnee for the project. Confirming the news, a spokesperson from Walt Disney says, "This initiative is to help The Avengers connect with a wider audience. Agnee's popularity with the youth will complement the popularity of The Avengers. We are glad that we have signed them to compose the theme song."
The film will have a 3D release in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu. Elated to be part of the international project, Mohan, the band's lead vocalist, reveals that the lyrics of the song will be written by Abbas Tyrewala. "The song is going to be at par with the mood and feel of the story. It will be a great experience working with Disney and Abbas. We have already started working on the song. The American superhero film, produced by Marvel Studios and distributed by Walt Disney Pictures, brings together various iconic characters like Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr), Captain America (Chris Evans) and Nick Fury (Samuel L Jackson).
The Avengers is set to release in India on April 27, a week before it will hit the music on May 4.
