The singer-actor-producer had once opened up about his association with Salman and his family. During that chat, he revealed that his journey in the industry hadn’t been that hard, all thanks to Khan’s family backing him. He had also spoken about sticking to camp while in the Hindi film industry. Read on to know all he said.
In a 2012 conversation with Hindustan Times, Himesh Reshammiya opened up about the importance of sticking to camps in Bollywood. The composer told the publication, “If you are sticking to a camp (in Bollywood), it works because (of) the platform (it provides). There are so many talented people than me but how will they prove their talent? So yes it is important to be a part of a camp.”
Continuing further, Himesh Reshammiya added, “Also, at the same time you need to be ready creatively at any given point. When you get a break, you can’t start working and follow a deadline. You should be creatively ready, pray to God and if you get a chance to have someone to back you, it works wonderfully.”
Talking about how his journey hasn’t been tough thanks to Salman Khan’s family, HR said, “It’s not been hard because I had Salman Khan’s family backing me. They gave me my first break at a very early age. I didn’t really have to struggle,” he said.
Some of Himesh Reshammiya’s other compositions featuring Salman Khan included Bandhan, Dulhan Hum Le Jayenge, Kahin Pyaar Na Ho Jaaye, Hello Brother, Yeh Hai Jalwa, Kyon Ki, Kick, Prem Ratan Dhan Payo and more.
