A decade back, Salman Khan and Kamaal Khan made history as they collaborated with 'O O Jaane Jaana' for the film PYAAR KIYA TO DARNA KYA (1998). The song as well as the film was a huge hit and soon Kamaal Khan became a household name.
Now the two Khans are reuniting for the film WANTED that features a song titled 'Ishq Vishq'. Composed by Sajid-Wajid, the song yet again boasts of a catchy tune and though purists may argue that the song doesn't offer anything new, the fact remains that the entire project is designed as a Salman Khan mass entertainer which goes back to old school masala entertainment genre. While Kamaal certainly seems to be enjoying his outing, Salman too is going all out in this song.
Says Wajid (of composer duo Sajid-Wajid) about this groovy number, "We wanted a special song for Salman bhai and while creating the tune, we felt that Kamaal Khan's voice would be the best fit for it. He is based out of UK and when we called him for the song, he was game for it. His voice has that zany feel to it and the twang that he gets along suits a number belonging to this genre so well. We are happy that ever since the promo of 'Ishq Vishq' went on air, the feedback has been great."
Well, one indeed believes Wajid when he says that because since the time of 'O O Jaane Jaana', Kamaal Khan has sung quite a few chartbuster tracks for Salman in films like HELLO BROTHER, KAHIN PYAAR NA HO JAAYE, TUMKO NA BHOOL PAAYENGE, TERE NAAM, DIL NE JIS APNA KAHA and MAINE PYAAR KYUN KIYA. Now add WANTED to the list!
