I’ve over the years introduced so many singers and composers. Music composer-singer Himesh Reshammiya says he is in a position in his career where he does not need to prove his calibre to anyone and just focus on taking his music a notch higher. I have a track record of more than 650 hit songs, 115 films, so there is nothing to prove,” Himesh told PTI in an interview. It is not possible now. I just need to get it right. “Right now, I don’t need to prove anything with my music. I can’t do 35 films a year which I used to do then. Till the time I don’t get it right, I don’t let it come out in the market. By: PTI | Mumbai |

Music composer-singer Himesh Reshammiya says he is in a position in his career where he does not need to prove his calibre to anyone and just focus on taking his music a notch higher. “It (the brand) has to be maintained. The scenario has changed.” “You can’t be doing quantity. With new singles coming out in the market every month, Himesh, who has truncated his work over the years, does not feel insecure. That is very important. Himesh has joined hands with label T-Series for his new album, which will have 10 original songs and videos. Himesh, who is up with a new album Aap Se Mausiiquii, says with a hit track record of more than 500 songs, he now wants to focus on exclusivity than being in the number race with other musicians. “I had a lot of songs which I felt if they come in an album they can become bigger hits than in films. Once the creative satisfaction was there we decided to go with the concept of the videos. I just have to live up to the expectations of the audience, that is the reason I’ve been very choosy,” he adds. In the initial phase when you have to make a mark, you have to do quantity but after that, you have to become exclusive,” the 43-year-old artist said. I keep working. “I don’t feel insecure being exclusive. I am really happy people are appreciating it,” he said. The Prem Ratan Dhan Payo composer says the idea to do this album, which is a follow up to his 2006 super-hit Aap Kaa Suroor, was decided when he met lyricist Manoj Muntashir and Bhushan Kumar.
