The film score and soundtrack are composed by A. R. Rahman. The record label T-Series had acquired the music rights in September 2014. In an interview with Business Standard, Imtiaz Ali said that the music in the film has been used as a narrative to enhance the inherent drama of the situation without dialogue. Songs are almost in the form of impresarios. According to the lyricist Irshad Kamil, the lyrical work present human emotions in such different flavours. The sounds in the song "Matargashti" and the instrumental track "Parade De La Bastille" are inspired by European Dance Music genre when the music parade is travelling to Corsica.For the track "Matargashti", Rahman wanted Mohit Chauhan to sing at a higher pitch when compared to his singing for the former's Rockstar. The song "Heer Toh Badi Sad Hain" belongs to the bhangra genre. This track was written in the same melodic meter compared to its original, titled "Heer".
The track required least time to record. On opting for Alka Yagnik, Rahman spoke that she had recorded previously the score of The Hundred-Foot Journey and her voice would be suitable for the track "Agar Tum Saath Ho".The song "Chali Kahani" is operatic and the lyrical work depicts mythological character Ravana's cry. It took six months for Rahman to mix the track. The track "Safarnama" is a spiritual journey song with minimal music arrangements. Initially, "Safarnama" was composed using more instruments, however, they were removed. On the same lines, the track "Tu Koi Aur Hai" is also a journey song but incorporates few musical instruments. A couple of songs in the film are narrative in nature that do not depict the actual moods of the characters, one such track is "Heer Toh Badi Sad Hai".In mid-September 2015, the soundtrack was being mixed.
Ranbir Kapoor's character (as Ved Vardhan Sahni) is about a person who is enchanted by stories, who grows up hearing them and expresses himself by performing them. Kapoor plays a free spirited person who wants everybody around him to be happy. He is a nomad, going out of his way to please people. The film portrays Kapoor's life in three stages–as a nine-year-old child, a 19-year-old adolescent and a 30-year-old foreign-returned adult. His character bears loose resemblance to that of Edward Bloom in the 2003 American fantasy drama film Big Fish.
The character played by Deepika Padukone (as Tara Maheshwari) is a quick, eloquent and emotionally agile girl who with a gentle gait. In an interview with Mumbai Mirror, Padukone stated her character as a fan of the French comic series, Asterix, which takes place in Corsica, France. In the film it sets out on an adventure wherein she meets Kapoor's character. They both explore the island and, along the way, they form a troupe to stage dramatic plays and fall passionately in love. In January 2015, Ali roped in few working officials of the tea auctioneer company J Thomas & Co. Pvt. Ltd. for the film. They were not auditioned but directly chosen to play their characters. In an explanation to the connection with company and Kolkata, Ali was quoted, "The character that Deepika plays in the movie is Tara Maheshwari and her family owns many tea gardens. We’ve borrowed the title of "Darjeeling Impex" to portray the company for the film." In the film, Tara's father hands over his tea business to Tara so that she starts a line of tea boutiques, taking the company ahead.
