Her distinct tunes in "Gangs Of Wasseypur" struck the right chords with music lovers, as did her compositions in MTV's show "Sound Trippin". But composer Sneha Khanwalkar says she has had her share of TV for now, and wants to concentrate on films.
"I think I've done a bit of television. Now I want to concentrate on films. With each film, one gets to experiment and go forward," Khanwalkar told IANS.
The concept of the show was what attracted the audience to it - Khanwalkar would go to different parts of the country in every episode, collect sounds from there and compose a song at the end of each episode.
"The best part about 'Sound Trippin' was that we got to play the song immediately back to the people who have contributed to it. In a film, the song is recorded, then worked on in Mumbai and they come out after a few months. People are always living in that anxiety if their voices have been used or not," she said.
After travelling to many unexplored areas of India, she says she had the most enriching time in Yellapur in Karnataka.
"The Karnataka episode was my favourite one. There was an African-origin tribe there. Firstly finding an African tribe in India was so surprising. They were so good. These guys are displaced from their country and have no idea how good they are," she said.
Khanwalkar's Bollywood tunes include latest hits like "Womaniya", "I am a hunter" and "Teri keh ke loonga".
