He labored with all the highest composers of the nation however, in contrast to a few of his contemporaries, he was referred to as for one or two numbers that determined or modified the course of the narrative. With unhappy numbers waning away from Indian cinema, KK was not remembered that usually by composers. But, when Pritam — with whom he had a protracted and profitable affiliation — wanted a rousing quantity for  83, he  dialled up  KK and we obtained “Yeh Hausle” It reminded us of the sense of hope he generated with “Aashayein” in  Iqbal.
