The music for Khalid Mohamed's latest film, Tehzeeb, was released on October 21.

All the members of the cast including Shabana Azmi, Urmila Matondkar, Dia Mirza, Arjun Rampal, Namrata Shirodkar and Diana Hayden were there to celebrate. A R Rahman, who scores the music, did not make an appearance.

Shabana, who played Urmila's mother in Shekhar Kapur's Masoom, plays her mother in Tehzeeb as well -- but with a difference. Here, the duo cannot get along because of Shabana's attitude towards her career as a singer.

"I enjoyed playing this character because it has negative shades. While Urmila and I keep fighting, Arjun's character provides the laughter!" grinned Shabana.

"In Saaz, I played a playback singer. In Morning Raaga, I play a Carnatic singer. Here, I am a ghazal singer who also sings pop music in keeping with the times," she said.

Maintaining the upbeat spirit, Urmila said, "When I did Masoom, I had no clue what acting was all about. Now, when I work with Shabana, I still feel I have no clue."

Urmila's character is called Tehzeeb in the film.
