Sooraj Barjatya has roped in Himesh Reshammiya to compose the music of his upcoming film starring Salman Khan. The film (untitled), which is set to go on floors next year, will see Salman team up with the director after 15 long years. Previously, the duo has given hits like Maine Pyar Kiya (1989), Hum Aapke Hain Koun! (1994), Hum Saath-Saath Hain (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.
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. And the two buried the hatchet with Bodyguard (2011).
Interestingly, Salman recently signed Himesh for his upcoming film Kick.
