Music composer duo Sajid-Wajid are thrilled after winning a series of awards for their music in 2010’s blockbuster ‘Dabangg’ and say that all the credit for their success goes to Salman Khan.
The two bagged best music director awards at the Star Screen Awards, Apsara Awards, Zee Cine Awards and Filmfare Awards for the funny cop drama in which Salman played the lead role.
"I am on cloud nine and it’s really fun. If we have worked hard, God has acknowledged it. Out of 101 percent, I would give 100 percent credit to Salman bhai and keep the rest with me for the success. Salman is like a godfather to us. When no one gave us a chance, he believed in us," Sajid said.
Wajid added: "I give 100 percent credit to Salman. He stood by us when nobody believed in us, he believed in our music, so certainly whatever we are today, a major part of the credit goes to him. If he had not been with us, our journey would have been more difficult."
The duo got their Bollywood break through actor-director-producer Sohail Khan with ‘Pyaar Kiya To Darna Kya’ in 1998 and since then they have given music for almost all of Salman’s films.
‘Dabangg’ also gave Salman his first award in the best actor category.
"No one can underrate Salman Khan. One’s ability can’t be measured by whether he is awarded or not. People make their position with their work; awards are just an extension of it. As a human being, Salman has garnered so many awards from normal people. As a human being he is far ahead," said Wajid.
As of now they are not associated with any Salman film, but they are sure to remain loyal to him.
"Certainly! We always look up to him. We are his loyalists and would always want to work with him," said Wajid.(IANS)
