The director goes off the beaten track by opting for Rabindranath Tagore and Chopin music for his segment in Bombay Talkies.

In the day and age when raunchy item numbers rule the roost in Bollywood, Dibakar Banerjee is thinking thoda hatke.

Going against the trend of having dance numbers, Dibakar, who is known for his risk-taking image in the industry, has instead opted to go experimental with the music in his next.

Our source says, "The director has done a short film for the first time with Bombay Talkies and he has used authentic music from both the East as well as the West. He has gone for Rabindratnath Tagore's music and classic compositions by Chopin. Two different schools of music are coming together for the first time in an Indian film."
