MUMBAI — At the stroke of midnight when Aug. 14 became Aug. 15, showman, educationist, writer and filmmaker Subhash Ghai celebrated the completion of 73 years of India’s Independence, stating, “I am so glad to launch our first magnetic song “Universal Echo,” based on the magnum sound of “Gayatri Mantra” under our new music label, Audeus Music, in associaton with music school Whistling Woods International.”
The showman goes on, “We started Mukta Arts in 1978 with the same “Gayatri Mantra” sound and logo and have been blessed with constant success and excellence. Feel blessed today. Thank you all. Love, SG.”
He offered a big thank you to Alka Yagnik, Sonu Nigam, Sukhwinder Singh and Hariharan in particular for their warm wishes.
Ghai elaborated: “It was on October 24, 1982, when Mukta Arts Pvt. Ltd. was formed after the classic “Karz” was made under Mukta Films, and we introduced two stars, Jackie Shroff and Meenakshi Seshadri in “Hero” on the stage, presenting them to the film industry. This was done to the sound of the “Gayatri Mantra” composed by Laxmikant-Pyarelal and rendered by Anuradha Paudwal and Manhar Udhas. The film was a golden jubilee and even ran for 75 weeks in a Chennai theatre. Now Mukta Arts launches its Music and Audio division with the Gayatri Mantra again.”
