The Music of The Body is composed by Shamir Tandon, Arko and Tanishk Bagchi with lyrics written by Arko, Kumaar, Manoj Muntashir and Sameer Anjaan. The film also has a remix version of Emraan Hashmi's 2004 film Axar's hit song "Jhalak Dikhlaja"

The Body is made on an estimated budget of Rs 20 crores including print and advertising cost. Which means that the Rishi Kapoor, Emraan Hashmi film has to cross the Rs 50 crores club to be a box-office hit.
Box Office Prediction
The Body is expected to cater to a very niche audience and hence it would struggle at the box-office to register cash. LatestLY predicts The Body's opening day gross to be around Rs 3 - 4 crores. It would struggle to cross the Rs 10 crores mark in its opening weekend.
Pouring the final reviews of The Body LatestLY's Rajat Tripathi wrote 'The Body has a story that will keep you hooked from start to end. It is carefully crafted to make the audience think it is predictable only to turn everything on its head in the second half. But movie buffs who have watched enough of cinema will find the execution boring and unoriginal.' Here is the full movie review of Emraan Hashmi and Rishi Kapoor Film.
