New Delhi: Music director Sohail Sen, who has composed for the upcoming Salman Khan starrer ‘Ek Tha Tiger’, says the actor has good sense in music and gave some valuable inputs regarding the film’s soundtrack.
“I am a big fan of Salman Khan. I am happy that I got an opportunity to work with him. He has a great music sense. He has knowledge and he gave me suggestions while I was working on the music of the film,” Sohail told PTI.
‘Ek Tha Tiger’ will be the 27-year-old composer’s second project with Yash Raj Films after ‘Mere Brother Ki Dulhan’. “Yash ji has been like a father figure to me. The whole Yash Raj team is very warm. The benefit of working with them is that you get to access the best studios. I have a three film contract with them. Currently, I am working on Ali Abbas Zafar’s next. But it is not that I can’t work with other production houses,” he said.
Sohail debuted as a film composer with the 2008 film ‘Sirf’, which went unnoticed. Later, he gained fame with his work in ‘What’s Your Raashee?’
Asked what made him choose to become a composer, he said, “I come from a family of musicians who have worked in the film industry. I am the fourth generation of my family to step into the field of composing.
“My father, Sameer Sen (of the music director duo Dilip Sen Sameer Sen) has always been a strong influence in my life and so was my paternal grandfather Shri Shambhu Sen’s singing,” he said.Dilip Sen-Sameer Sen Ek Tha Tiger Mere Brother Ki Dulhan Salman Khan Sohail Sen What's Your Raashee?
