In a recent interview to Business Standard, Himesh said “Prem Ratan Dhan Payo is the most-awaited film of the year and I have tried to live up to the expectations of Sooraj ji’s script and Salman bhai’s persona, which is historic, (the album will have) purely romantic melodies which are very soulful and yet have Salman Khan’s stamp on them.”
Himesh and Salman are known to be a hit music director and actor team. It will be the first time that Himesh is working with director Sooraj Bajatya, and it is the first time after 16 years that Salman is working again with Sooraj. Sonam Kapoor plays the female lead. Himesh, most recently, gave Salman the super hit song ‘Jumme Ki Raat’ in Kick.
Himesh will next be seen as a mentor on The Voice India on & TV. Speaking further to Business Standard, about the show, Himesh said “I chose to be a part of ‘The Voice India’ because of its overall concept of blind auditions… And battles which is very unusual and also because this show has worked universally with the audience. So far, I am loving every moment which I have shot for the show, I am looking for voice that will have its own individual quality and style. Bookish knowledge does not work in the practical field of shows, performers and film industry. I will train them (contestants) in becoming super-performers, who are great singers with superb pick-up sense, besides having a quality of spontaneous audience interaction in them.”
Himesh was also asked to share his thoughts about the recent trend of actors singing for themselves to which he said “If actors are singing well and churning out hits then I think it is a beautiful trend. There is no harm if it’s converting into success, like in the case of Salman bhai.”
