The music of the Netflix series Bridgerton was as much a talking point as its story and cast. The show, which premiered in 2020, was one of the most popular series on the OTT platform. Now, the second season is ready to stream on Netflix, before which show creator Chris Van Dusen has opened songs that we can expect to feature in the second season.
According to him, a series of popular tunes, including a song from the popular Karan Johar movie, were used in the show. Dusen revealed to People.com that “Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham” (the titular song from the movie of the same name) will be used in the fourth episode of Season 2. The song originally featured Bollywood actors – Shah Rukh Khan, Amitabh Bachchan, Kajol, Jaya Bachchan, Kareena Kapoor Khan and Hrithik Roshan. The track was originally composed by Jatin-Lalit.
Bridgerton 2 creator Chris Van Dusen also explained how a version of Miley Cyrus’ “Wrecking Ball” will be used on the show because it “fits a certain dynamic between two characters so perfectly.”
“I very rarely know what song is going to be used in the final edit and there’s a lot of trial and error that has to happen. But there’s one exception in season two and it’s a Miley Cyrus song. that I knew I had to use at a particular point in the show and that I won’t mess up right now,” he told People.com.
“But I wrote a particular scene on Midnight String Quartet’s cover of ‘Wrecking Ball’ because the emotion of that song hits me every time and I thought it fit so perfectly with a certain dynamic between two characters,” he added.
The series will also feature Rihanna’s “Diamonds” in the first episode, while Pink’s “What About Us” and Calvin Harris’ “How Deep Is Your Love” will feature in episodes 6 and 7, respectively.
The season is set to premiere on the OTT platform on March 25.
