The ace music director
made his Bollywood debut in 1998 with Pyaar
Kiya To Darna Kya
(starring Salman Khan
and Kajol Devgn) upon the recommendation of his good friend Salman Khan
. Reshammiya only
produced two musical tracks for the album, which went on to be fairly
successful. However, it wasn't until Tere Naam
(2003) that Reshammiya emerged as a music director to watch out for and eventually became a
household name. Since then, he has accumulated many successful
albums to his name which include Maine
Pyaar Kyun Kiya
(2005), Aashiq Banaya Aapne
(2006), Namastey London
(2007), Aap Kaa Surroor
(2011), Bol Bachchan
(2012) and the recently released Kick
Along with being an
exceptional music director, Reshammiya is also a singer, actor,
producer, lyricist and writer. He came into light as a singer in 2005
with the movie Aashiq
Banaya Aapne. Since then, he has sung in nearly every album he has produced. Reshammiya then made his acting debut in 2007 with Aap
Kaa Surroor and arose as a producer and writer with Damadamm! (2011). His most recent endeavour was as a
lyricist where he penned the lyrics to "Hookah Bar" from Khiladi 786.
Speaking of Reshammiya's
recent work, he was seen on the big screen earlier this year in The Xpose
(2014), which received varying decent
reviews. A sequel to this movie is scheduled for a 2015 release. Likewise, Reshammiya
has also penned the music for Sajid Khan's Humshakals
and Salman Khan
Transgressing his success from the big screen to the small, he is also commonly known
as a judge for the successful music reality TV show Sa Re Ga Ma Pa. Reshammiya served on the panel for three seasons.
