Composer Anu Malik's comeback to the Hindi film industry was not exactly as grand as was expected to with the big star cast KAMBAKKHT ISHQ failing to win the audience's heart. Even the music of the films was not as big a hit but things are pretty much on course with just one song, read item number doing it for Anu.
Well, we are talking about the song, "Tinku Jiya" from this year's first big hit, YAMLA PAGLA DEEWANA. The super success of the song, especially in the interiors, has resurrected Anu and the composer is ready and rearing to go. We have news from trade sources that he has been signed by a top notch director though he is unwilling to name the person.
Anu also expressed his desire of working with ace actor, Aamir Khan. Our patrons will remember that Anu Malik had composed some evergreen numbers for Aamir's AKELE HUM AKELE TUM and the two are indeed very close. In fact Anu discloses that even though he has worked with Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan in quite a few films, it is Aamir Khan who he loves most because of his fine nature. Anu also added that the two are good friends and Aamir gives him lots of warmth and love.
Not restricting himself just to Aamir, Anu expressed his admiration for Aamir's wife Kiran Rao saying that he would love to work with her as he really admired her work in her debut film DHOBI GHAT.
Certainly if Anu and Aamir can rework the magic of AKELE HUM AKELE TUM in a new project it would be indeed a memorable experience for all music lovers.
