Sajid-Wajid are continuing to win awards for DABANGG (recently concluded IIFA award being another example) and subsequently their age old association with Salman Khan is continuing in future projects as well. Though they are not composing for BODYGUARD (which has gone to Himesh Reshammiya), Sajid-Wajid would be making music for Salman's KICK, SHER KHAN, DABANGG 2 as well as NO ENTRY MEIN ENTRY.
"Every movie comes with its own kind of music based on an actor who is cast in it," reasons Sajid, "A song like Jalwa (WANTED) can work only if it is picturised on Salman bhai. That's because of the kind of humor that his personality brings in such situation. That can't really fit in well for any other actor. So when you hear a Salman song, you can immediately say that it has been made for him."
So while in 2010 their highlight films were DABANGG and VEER, both Salman Khan starrers, the future is only looking better with Sajid Nadiadwala's HOUSEFULL 2, Sanjay Leela Bhansali's ROWDY RATHORE, Priyadarshan's TEZZ, Kunal Kohli's next (with Shahid Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra) and David Dhavan's CHASHME BUDDOOR on the anvil.
"We want to work on lesser projects but the ones which are really worthy enough," adds Sajid, "Even after WANTED there were many projects that came our way but we wanted to pick up only those that were really exciting and important enough. Now again after DABANGG there is a huge rush due to which we had to even leave a few films. But then this is a conscious call that we have taken. We don't want on work on 20 projects at the same time. It isn't that we can't do it. It is just that at the end of the day your life is more important. One should enjoy that as well."
