Singing to Salman Khan's tunes
Sajid-Wajid may be making music for his next film but the star still gets their foe Himesh Reshammiya to sing a song
With Salman Khan, people say it’s either his way or the highway. And his good friends, Sajid-Wajid and Himesh Reshammiya got a taste of it recently.
While the music duo is working on Salman’s upcoming film Mental, the star has informed them of his wish to have Himesh sing one of the tracks. And all this when the crooner and Sajid-Wajid don’t exactly see eye-to-eye.
According to sources, a couple of years ago Sajid-Wajid and Himesh were at loggerheads over making music for another of Salman’s films, 'Sher Khan'. While the composer duo was already on board, Himesh had apparently been trying his best to bring the music deal his way. A source says, “On Friday night, Salman called Sajid-Wajid home for a music session when he informed them he wanted Himesh to sing a track from their composition.” The star rang Himesh up and the singer rushed to his home. The former foes had no choice but to hear Salman out and do as he desired.
Says a source, “Salman bhai is very close to Himesh. It comes as no surprise.” It was after he scored some tracks in Salman’s Bodyguard that Himesh is said to have become close to the star. Sajid was recently quoted saying, “Himesh has his own space and we have our own. We aren’t friends, like we are with the other music directors. May be he has friends outside the music circle in films.” Sajid-Wajid and Himesh remained unavailable for comment.
