Though their last film together, KAMINEY, had boasted of some good music, it wasn't a quintessential romantic Bollywood soundtrack. However for their next outing, director Kunal Kohli is making sure that the music turns out to be the kind which gives audience what they expect out from an out and out musical.
Says Wajid, of Sajid-Wajid duo which has been entrusted the responsibility of composing for this yet untitled version, 'Someone like Kunal Kohli has been our favorite director of mine. We have loved his films and always wanted to create some music for one of his future outings. Since this one has Shahid and Priyanka in the lead and also spans across three eras, it is all the more challenging. We are happy with the way music of this film has shaped up so far.'

Post DABANGG, Sajid-Wajid had taken a break and though they don't have too many films releasing this year, they promise that 2012 would be theirs.
'I would say that 'allah' has been kind and it was about time that we got all the recognition that we deserved,' adds Sajid, 'I have always believed in the saying that Waqt se pehle aur kismat se zyada na mila hai aur na milega. One has to wait for his turn and we did that as well. What we never lost was belief in ourselves. Also, we knew where we were heading and worked with the right people and on right projects. Kunal is one such filmmaker. We are having fun composing for his film.'
Meanwhile there are top filmmakers vying for their attention. 'The kind of banners that we are working together is fantastic. It doesn't happen every year that one sits with someone like a Bhansali and discusses music,' says Wajid, 'It couldn't have been better. Challenge now is to deliver.'
