MUMBAI - The composer duo Sajid-Wajid are on cloud nine after winning a series of awards for their music in last year’s blockbuster “Dabangg” and the two give credit to Salman Khan for their success.
They bagged best music director awards at Star Screen Awards, Apsara Awards, Zee Cine Awards and Filmfare Awards for the funny cop drama in which Salman Khan played the lead role.
“I am on cloud nine and it’s really fun. If we have worked hard, god has acknowledged it. Out of 101 percent, I would give 100 percent credit to Salman bhai and keep the rest with me for the success. Salman is like a godfather to us. When no one gave us a chance, he believed in us,” Sajid told IANS in an interview.
Wajid said: “I give 100 percent credits to Salman Khan. He stood by us when nobody believed in us, he believed in our music, so certainly whatever we are today, a major part of the credit goes to him. If he had not been with us, our journey would have been more difficult.”
The duo was introduced to Bollywood by actor-director-producer Sohail Khan with “Pyaar Kiya To Darna Kya” in 1998 and since then they have given music for almost all Salman films and with “Dabangg” they have struck gold.
This film fetched Salman too his first award in the best actor category.
“No one can underrate Salman Khan. One’s ability can’t be measured by whether he is awarded or not. People make their position with their work; awards are just an extension of it. As a human being, Salman has garnered so many awards from normal people. As a human being he is far ahead,” said Wajid.
As of now they are not associated with any Salman film, but they are sure to remain loyal to him.
“Certainly! We always look up to him. We are his loyalists and would always want to work with him,” said Wajid.
