Sajid Khan opens up on working solo after Wajid's death
Music composer Sajid Khan, of the duo Sajid-Wajid, said that he is learning how to work solo, after his brother Wajid Khan's death. Sajid stated that he now has to take care of the things that were earlier handled by his brother. To recall, Wajid had died last year due to complications caused after contracting the coronavirus. Here is more on this.
In an interview with Pinkvilla, Sajid revealed, "Before, Wajid used to meet every day and I always used to be inside. And now, I have to meet all the artists (sic)." "All the singers and artists, Wajid used to be friends with them. Now I have to become friends with everyone and work with them (sic)," he added.
Naturally, Wajid's untimely death has left a void in Sajid's life, not only professionally but also personally. He said, "Sometimes I feel Wajid has come into my composition. And he is always there, you know. I really don't want to think and believe he is no more (sic)." "Till the time I'm dying, he is there with me (sic)," the composer stated.
Wajid had died last year at the age of 42 after suffering from various complications caused due to COVID-19. He breathed his last at a hospital in Mumbai. For the unversed, the composer had also been suffering from kidney-related issues for the past few years.
Sajid-Wajid, one of the most popular music duos of Bollywood, have been associated with the industry for a long time. They started their career with Salman Khan's Pyaar Kiya Toh Darna Kya in 1998, and went on to compose songs for films like Wanted, Mujhse Shaadi Karogi, and the Dabangg franchise, among others. They also composed Salman's single Bhai Bhai, released amid the coronavirus-induced lockdown.
Sajid is currently busy composing music for Salman's upcoming film Radhe: Your Most Wanted Bhai. The movie, which was earlier scheduled to be released during Eid 2020, will reportedly get a theatrical release around Eid this year. It has been directed by Prabhu Deva.
