Mumbai: After composing the refreshing and spunky soundtrack of Rock On, music composers Shankar, Ehsaan and Loy are back with yet another rock fest called London Dreams that stars Salman Khan, Ajay Devgan and Asin as rockstars.

While people look forward to one rocking number after another to be belted out, Ehsaan said, "In Rock On, the music came from a very English- American (feel) despite having Hindi words and everything. This is basically a folk album presented in a slightly different way. It is also presented in a slightly different way. It is also about a musician."

The film has already run into controversy for a song that contains the jazzed up version of the Hanuman Chalisa.

"First there was a bit of worry because you know how in this country everything is sensitive. When it came through, it is a very innocent depiction of Hanuman Chalisa. It is very valid. Whenever we start our concert, we start with a Ganesh shloka," Ehsaan added.
