Vishal Dadlani’s musical journey started back in 1994, with the electronica/indie-rock band Pentagram formed in Mumbai. The band fronted by Vishal Dadlani with Randolph Correia on guitars, Clyde D’souza (former member) on guitars, Papal Mane on bass and Shiraz Bhattacharya on drums. All of whom have recently been actively involved in the Bollywood music business.
Vishal got his first break as Playback Singer when Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy called him for the movie Jhoom Barabar Jhoom. Some reasons the song came out late and Vishal had Recorded a Track called “Dhoom Again” for Pritam Chakraborty which came out earlier than the first one in 2006. Hence, it became the most popular track in the country and became Vishal’s first track as a Playback Singer.
He is not a trained musician but his interest evolved after listening to his father’s music collections. He is India’s apex music composer to perform live over the internet and smartphones.
He has a 19-year journey in Bollywood along with composer Shekhar Rajviani. The duo has composed music for films such as Jhankaar Beats (2003), Dus (2005), Zinda (2006) and Student Of The Year (2012) among many others. Apart from Salman Khan’s Bharat, they also composed for Karan Johar’s Student Of The Year 2 (SOTY2) and YRF’s as-yet-untitled film starring Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff.
They are an amazing team and individually too they are pretty strong and are pretty perfect in their work. Vishal for sure is still one Of the best that Bollywood will ever have. No one can ever match his level.
