There is an interesting anecdote that Jackie Shroff shares about this melodious Flute tune…

“For fifteen years now, two unknown flautists show up at my home every Sunday and they play this flute tune from Hero. Then they quietly leave.  It doesn’t matter if I am out of town.  These guys come home and do the Hero theme anyway. Basuri baut pyar se bajaate hain.
“They wake up the entire building with their music. But nobody minds. That Hero flute passage is very very sureela.  Do you know who played it in the film? The maestro Hari Prasad Chaurasia himself!  I’ve been a fan of Panditji since then. And now when these boys play it for me every Sunday I feel I am transported back to my beginnings in the movies.”

“I don’t know, why have the flautists been showing up for fifteen years? Hero was released 29 years ago.  I never asked them. They never told me. I don’t even know their names. They just come religiously, play the music and quietly leave.”

 “That flute passage was composed by Laxmikant-Pyarelal. Pandit Chaurasia played it for me. It played a big hand in launching me as a romantic hero.’

How to read SARGAM notations

  • CAPITAL LETTERS = Shuddh Swars (Flat Notes)
  • small letters = Komal Swars (Low Notes)
  • A Note with # [hash] = Tivra Swar (High Note)
  • Letter/Alphabet ONLY = Medium Pitch/Normal blow on flute
  • Letter/Alphabet PRECEDED BY a ” . ” [full stop] or  a ” , ” [comma] = Low Pitch/Softer blow on flute
  • Letter/Alphabet FOLLOWED BY a ‘ [single quote] = High Pitch/harder blow on flute
  • Notes in { } = “murki” have to be played very fast without any pause
  • A Note in ( ) = “kaan swar” has to be just touched before moving on to the next note
  • A “~” between two Notes = “meend”. That is, you have to glide from one note to another slowly to produce that wavy effect.
