News had been abuzz for quite sometime now that, filmmaker Sooraj Barjatya and Salman Khan will team up for a movie after 15 long years. Now latest update is that the director has roped in Himesh Reshammiya to compose the music of this yet-to-be-titled project.
An official from Rajshri Productions read: "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.
Although, Himesh started his career as a music composer with Salman's 'Pyaar Kiya To Darna Kya' (1998) and followed it up with his 'Hello Brother' (1999), 'Tere Naam' (2003) and 'Maine Pyaar Kyun Kiya' (2005), their alliance soon hit a rough patch. But then, the two buried the hatchet with 'Bodyguard' (2011). Also, Salman recently signed Himesh for his upcoming film 'Kick'.
Our sources revealed that Barjatya's film will go on floor in June 2014 and the producers are looking at a Diwali (2015) release.
Previously, the filmmaker-actor duo has given hits like 'Maine Pyar Kiya' (1989), 'Hum Aapke Hain Koun..!' (1994) and 'Hum Saath-Saath Hain' (1999). Let's see how they fare with their latest venture.
