This was one combination that one had been waiting to be back in Bollywood for quite some time now. Together, Himesh Reshammiya and Salman Khan had delivered close to a dozen odd chartbuster albums. However, the last album for which they had collaborated was Kyon Ki which was way back in 2005. Now more than half a decade later, the duo is coming together for Bodyguard which is Salman’s home production (Atul Agnihotri, Salman’s brother-in-law, produces the film).
Our source spills the beans:
Himesh’s last film for an outside banner was Namastey London, the songs of which are playing till date. However, after turning an actor, Himesh stopped doing films for outside banners. He has recently made an exception with the sequel to the film, Namastey London 2. Next step in the same direction is Bodyguard.
Their biggest album till date happens to be Tere Naam. Other films like Maine Pyaar Kyun Kiya, Dulhan Hum Le Jayenge, Kahi Pyaar Na Ho Jaaye and Pyar Kiya To Darna Kya boast of chartbuster music as well.
The Salman factor
There have been speculations all these years about Himesh and Salman separating from each other due to certain irresolvable conflicts. Though Himesh had denied any problems whatsoever, tongues were continuing to wag. Now with Bodyguard as their next project together, all these rumours have been laid to rest. Himesh is said to be mighty excited about the film and is finalising some of the best tunes for Bodyguard.
The original composer
Pritam was originally roped in to compose for Bodyguard. However, the sole track that he has already done would be used for the film while the remaining four would be composed by Himesh.
Himesh had announced that all music composed by him would be presented only though his music label and publishing company HR MUSIK. However, Bodyguard is an exception as Himesh has stepped in the project only now while the music rights have already been acquired by T-Series.
Himesh’s next comedy film as an actor, Damadamm, would be releasing this Diwali while clashing with Shah Rukh Khan‘s Ra.One. In addition the composer is now ready with 500 new compositions and has signed 250 artists, bands, musicians, singers and composers for his company. This is not all as his international album in English, ‘@ da edge’ would be soon released in 122 countries.
