Hate remixes because original composers don’t get credit: Vishal Dadlani


She sang her first song with us – “Ishq Wala Love” (Student of the Year). You think artists prefer to judge TV shows to stay relevant? RD Burman must come first. We sang some classic songs that we have all grown up listening too. Relevance depends on your work. Jonita Gandhi who also sang her first song with us. For me, MixTape is a time out with friends. Even for “Disco Deewane”, I spoke to Biddu personally on the phone and took his permission to do this. You have given a break to many artists. Do you like the trend of recreating old classics? How do you sort out creative differences with Shekhar? 0
Comment(s) So, to be singing his song is an absolute honor. It was based on the philosophy of Rabindranath Tagore. One singer you are really proud of today? Abhijit Vaghani and Neeti Mohan are great friends of mine. Also vice versa, that those who are very relevant in the music industry, but don’t judge shows. Tell us more about MixTape. More Explained

Q. I am collaborating with Neeti Mohan for the songs “Chand Chupa” from Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam and “Tumhe Apna Banane Ka Junoon”. So, in our case, when we did “Bachna Ae Haseeno” for example, the original composer is of course RD Burman and it says that. There are so many who judge TV shows and aren’t even relevant. Vishal, on his part, continues to team up with new talent on a variety of projects, and his latest one is T-Series’ MixTape season 2 where he has performed with singer Neeti Mohan. I don’t think too much about it. Advertising

Vishal-Shekhar has composed music for films like Jhankaar Beats, Bluffmaster, Om Shanti Om, Bachna Ae Haseeno, Dostana, Student of the Year, Chennai Express, Bang Bang, Sultan and Tiger Zinda Hai. Advertising

I hate it. We fight! Q. How do you manage it all? (laughs)
Q. In an exclusive interaction with indianexpress.com, Vishal spoke about the trend of remixes and what makes artists judge television reality shows. Their latest project is Karan Johar’s Student of the Year 2. Vishal Dadlani and Shekhar Ravjiani have been working together for the past two decades. But my favourite so far is the one that Shekhar and I did, a song called Naseeba – “Minds without Fear”. These guys are our future. Also read: Neeti Mohan: I am in the best phase of my life right now

Q. Because the original composers don’t get the credit. You do so many things within the music industry. The original composer is a parent of that tune and you can’t take that away. I don’t know about relevance but they get paid really well to judge these shows. Neeti Mohan. We have done a lot of collaborations. I do everything with a lot of love and I’ll never sing a song I don’t mean. There should be a sense of gratitude towards that person for creating that tune. It says music by RD Burman and interpretation by Vishal and Shekhar or whatever. Which has been your personal favourite song or collaboration?
