Excerpts of his tete-e-tete:
What's your experience about giving music in period films?
What about providing general music?
There is no need for any research in general films.
How come your music is always fresh?
Why did you stop singing?
I take time and cannot sing instantaneously. I need riyaz (practice) for it. However, I am a singer first. I don't like singing in a hurry though.
Who do you like in our music industry?
They are all talented singers. Udit Narain, Sukhvinder Singh, Sonu Nigam and Shaan can be counted among them.
Would you agree that you have created many singers?
I don't create singers. I try to polish them though.
What's the difference between composing music for yourself and for other directors?
When I compose music for myself, I do it according to my perception. In case of providing to other directors, I try to comply to their taste.
