If he is a worst enemy then he is a best friend too! Salman Khan can do anything for his friends! It was Salman Khan who introduced Himesh Reshammiya in the industry and made him a hit by composing for his films like PYAAR KIYA TOH DARNA KYA, HELLO BROTHER, TERE NAAM, MAINE PYAAR KYUN KIYA, etc. Though there was a time when the duo's relation went sour, they got back together with 2011 blockbuster film BODYGUARD. And they were again back to being good buddies. Salman once again got Himesh for composing music of his upcoming film AZAAD (earlier titled MENTAL). He recently even signed Himesh for his upcoming film Kick.
SALMAN KHAN, SOORAJ BARJATYA and HIMESH RESHAMMIYA
And now we hear, at the behest of Salman Khan, Sooraj Barjatya (Salman's yet another good friend, who gave him his first superhit film MAINE PYAR KIYA) has roped in music composer Himesh Reshammiya to compose the music of his upcoming film. The film (untitled), which is set to go on floors next year, will see Salman Khan team up with the director after 15 long years. Previously, the duo has given superhits like MAINE PYAR KIYA (1989), HUM AAPKE HAIN KOUN..! (1994), HUM SAATH-SAATH HAIN: We Stand United (1999).
The film will go on floor in June 2014 and the producers are looking at a Diwali (2015) release.
An official from Rajshri Productions said: ''Himesh will compose the music and Irshad Kamil (of JAB WE MET, LOVE AAJ KAL, ROCKSTAR and AASHIQUI 2 fame) will pen the lyrics.'' It is an unlikely choice for the Barjatyas, who are known to stick to traditional Indian folk and classical music, while Himesh's strong point has been highly charged electronic music. The buzz is that it was Salman who convinced Sooraj.''
Well, all we can say is Friend Ho Toh Salman Jaisa!
