Reshammiya brushes away criticism

Mumbai, March 27 (IANS) His newfound fame and success as a singer has earned music director Himesh Reshammiya several enemies in the industry. Even colleague Anu Malik is now criticizing him. 

Malik, who refused to share the credit with him after he recorded a number for T-series' latest production 'Hum Ko Deewana Kar Gaye', said he wouldn't allow anyone to invade his terrain unethically. Reshammiya says he was shocked after reading Malik's outburst, reports Bollywood Trade.

'It came as a big surprise, since I had sought a 'no objection' from Malik before recording the song for the film. It was only after the producer, Bhushan Kumar, got it in the writing that I recorded the song,' said Reshammiya, adding he has been cautious about ethics throughout his career.

'I have always made sure that I do not intrude anyone's territory despite the several offers I keep getting. On the contrary, I had to share the credits with other music directors in 'Pyaar Kiya To Darna Kya' and 'Hello Brother'.'

In another instance, singer Sonu Nigam expressed his reservations about Reshammiya sweeping away the awards for best singer this year, but the latter dismissed it with a smile.

He said: 'I respect Sonu for his great singing prowess and I'd be happy if he walks away with all the awards for the best singer. I can't help it if the audiences make my songs a hit or the juries unanimously vote me as the best singer.'

Reshammiya, who won the Filmfare award for the title track of 'Aashiq Banaya Aapne', is unperturbed by the critical backlash by his colleagues and says the industry has been largely kind to him.

'I am neither hurt nor disturbed by the occasional backbiting and criticism from my colleagues. By and large, the music industry has been very supportive. It is just that some people are surprised with the fact that a music director, who is also a singer, has walked away with all the awards for singing.

'Probably for the first time in the music industry, a music director has been honoured for singing but I am not a singer by fluke. Before I got the desired effect in my voice, I trained in classical music under my father for several years.

'Of the many songs I have recorded so far, whether it is for my album, 'Aap Ka Suroor' or films, there is not a single song that hasn't topped the charts. 'Aksar' is my 28th album and the response has been phenomenal.'

Meanwhile, he continues with his record-breaking spree at the music charts. After 'Aksar', he is now upbeat about the new track in director Deepak Tijori's 'Tom Dick And Harry' that has become the latest sensation.

Commenting upon Reshammiya's popularity as a singer Tijori said: 'He is the biggest craze and whatever he records invariably makes it to the charts. He has got this amazing sense of music.'
