MUMBAI: Bollywood music composers singing their own tunes is now passe. Music composers are now singing other composers’ tunes. Vishal Dadlani sang for composer Vishal Bhardwaj in ‘Kaminey’ and for Abhishek-Akshay in ‘Vicky Donor’.
Now we hear Wajid of the Sajid-Wajid team is all set to sing songs by other composers. Apparently after his vocals in the chartbuster ‘Chinta ta ta’ and ‘Mukhtasar’ in ‘Rowdy Rathore’ and ‘Teri Meri Kahani’, Wajid is seriously interested in pursuing it. Flooded with singing offers, we hear he has received singing offers from a nearly a dozen composers.
And Wajid is all set to take up at last half of these offers.
Says the composer-singer, “Yes, I am about to branch out as an independent singer. After ‘Chinta ta ta’ and ‘Mukhtasar’ there have been many tempting offers. I am taking up some of these. The thing is, my brother and I are very busy with composition. So I’d have to divide my time between my work as a composer and singer very judiciously. It’s rather flattering to have other composers want me to sing their songs.”
