Long before the trend of composers turning singers started with Himesh Reshammiya, Vishal and Shekhar had sung for a song or two in most of their films. In fact Vishal has extended himself to write lyrics for some of the films too. What came, as a surprise though was to hear Vishal singing for fellow composer Pritam in DHOOM 2. The song was none other than chartbuster 'Dhoom Again' and got Vishal noticed once again as a multi faceted talent.
Now after creating history, Vishal has flexed his vocal chords for Shankar Ehsaan Loy too for the upcoming music of JHOOM BARABAR JHOOM. The song in the picture is titled 'Kiss Of Love' and Vasundhara Das is Vishal's co-singer for the duet.
On being asked about the song happened, Vishal replied, "It was quite simple actually. Shekhar and myself have been knowing Shankar, Ehsaan and Loy from the time when we were recording for PYAAR MEIN KABHI KABHI while they were working for their music of Late Mukul S nand's DUS."
Doesn't professional rivalry come into picture considering the world of music is restricted to a few notable composers? "But our association has been much more than just being in the same profession. We share the same passion of creating music and don't mind giving each other feedback even during the time when our compositions are in initial stages. This is why when I was asked to croon 'Kiss Of Love', I asked why not?"
