After a failed attempt, composer duo Sajid-Wajid finally signed on by Aditya Chopra's production house

Looks like Aditya Chopra has had a change of heart. After apparently initially refusing to work with music composers Sajid and Wajid, Chopra’s production studio has signed the duo for an upcoming film. A while back there was buzz that when Salman offered to rope them in for Ek Tha Tiger that was produced by the late Yash Chopra’s production house, he was met with a firm no. But those inhibitions seem to be a thing of the past now.

Says a source, “However, Salman got his way around and managed to bring them on board for a track in the film. But now, they have been signed for Habib Faisal’s next film starring Aditya Roy Kapoor and Parineeti Chopra.” Insiders say it was allegedly Habib who insisted on getting the music duo on board.

“While making Ishaqzaade, he had told his sound designers to produce music similar to Sajid-Wajid’s Tere mast mast do nain from Salman’s Dabangg,” adds the source. Another source from the production house however states, “Chopra’s studio is in the mood to get newer talent under its banner. They did that with Sachin-Jigar, Raghu Dixit and now with Sajid-Wajid.”
