It`s not been an easy ride to fame for ace lyricist Shabbir Ahmed, who wrote success stories with hit films like Bodyguard`, OMG!Oh My God`, Khiladi 786`, Bol Bachchan`, Humshakals` and now the Salman Khan sensation Kick`. But the writer thanks Salman for having his back every now and then. The super talented lyricist, who is currently riding high with the latest chartbuster "Jumme Ki Raat" in Kick`, gives his success credit to the Dabangg` star.

"I openly speak about having Salman Khan as my godfather in the industry. His immense support and faith in my work has taken me to great heights in my career," remarked Shabbir as he juggles from one music sitting to the other.

Shabbir also stated that composer Himesh Reshammiya has been very instrumental in his journey. "I am glad to work with a composer like Himeshji who understands the importance of lyrics in songs and blends them brilliant melodies. I wouldn`t have been what I am today if it wasn`t for both Himeshji and Salman bhai," added Shabbir.

However, that doesn`t take away the fact that he cherishes the bond he has developed with many stalwarts of the industry with whom he has worked including the likes of Ajay Devgan, Rohit Shetty, Sajid-Wajid, Meet Brothers, Jeet Ganguly, Mithoon, A R Rehman among others.

And now the song writer is all set to woo the music lovers with the upcoming action packed flick 'Singham Returns'. The songs of 'Kick' are already pleasing all Salman fans and we surely are hoping a chart busting album from the forthcoming Ajay Devgn starrer as well.
