Salim and Sulaiman are great composers.

Both the brothers Salim Merchant and Sulaiman Merchant, known as Salim Sulaiman are great composers during present period of time. They rose to fame after composing music for Kaal. The songs were very meaningful and added flavor in the suspense thriller.

In Neal ‘n’ Nikki, Salim Sulaiman gave catchy tunes. Their title song “chak de o chak de india” stormed bollywood. The song ended up being theme song of hockey players and other players.

They composed brilliant music in the film Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi. Shahrukh Khan played the roles of Raj Kapoor, Dev Anand, Shammi Kapoor, Rajesh Khanna, Rishi Kapoor, etc., in the song “hum hai rahi pyar ke”. Sonu Nigam sang the song after bringing the flavor of all the leading singers of bollywood during 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s. While that song took the viewers by surprise, the song sung by Sukhwinder Singh titled ‘haule haule ho jayega pyar” became another super hit number.

They also gave successful music in the film Fashion. Although Madhur Bhandarkar’s film was related to negative traits in the fashion industry, the music of Salim Sulaiman captured the off-beat theme.

Salim Sulaiman won a number of awards for giving background scores. They won starscreen awards for providing best background music in the films Bhoot and Dhoom. They won the IIFA award for giving best background score in the film Mujhse Shaadi Karogi. They won the filmfare award for the best background score in the film Krissh.
