Himesh, who is working with Sajid for the first time, has given 6 brilliant songs for Sajid’s next film Humshakals - a triple role comedy featuring Saif Ali Khan (x three) Riteish Deshmukh (x three) and Ram Kapoor (x three) with actresses Esha Gupta, Bipasha Basu and Tamannah Bhatiya.
Speaking to Bollywood Hungama, Sajid said “There may be three heroes in the film, but there is one more hero and that is Himesh Reshammiya. He is the unsung hero of the film. The way he has done music for the film, I think somewhere, he and I have become a team. Ladies and Gentlemen, re-introducing, Himesh Reshammiya.” With Sajid speaking so highly of Himesh we know already, the music will be a real treat!
Three song promos have released so far and they are swiftly climbing the charts: ‘Caller Tune’, (vocals by Neeraj Shridhar & Neeti Mohan) ‘Piya Ke Bazar Main’, (vocals by Himesh, Palak Muchhal & Shalmali Kholgade) ‘Just Look into My Eyes’ (Ash King & Neeti Mohan) The full album released last week and has been very well received by all music lovers.
When asked about the reason for creating a song like ‘Caller Tune’ speaking to RadioandMusic.com Himesh said “Over the years, caller tunes have become extremely popular and I thought there was no song made about the same. Thus I thought why not make a song about something like this. That is when I came up with the track, and thankfully even Sajid bhai liked the song. I know it will become a very popular caller tune very soon.” We are sure it will too!
We are loving the music of Humshakals and know that it will be one of the most popular soundtracks to listen to this Summer! Kudos once again to Himesh for bringing back the happy sound of music that has been missing from the Bollywood music scene.
Humshakals releases on 20th June. Music is out now.
