After Nadeem-Shravan and JatinLalit, Nikhil-Vinay are the latest to join the trend of music composer duos going their separate ways.
“Its been eight to nine months since we decided to part ways amicably,” confirms Vinay Tiwari, adding, “We worked together for almost 18 years and it’s been a nice journey.” When asked about the reason for the separation, Vinay insisted that there were no hard feelings between the two and that they are still on talking terms.
“We didn’t part on a sour note. Everything is fine between us. It’s just that we decided to go solo,” he says, adding, “I’m enjoying every bit of be ing independent. Currently I’m busy making my music studio at Andheri.” Interestingly, Vinay, who believes in destiny, came to Mumbai to become a singer. “But then I met Nikhil and we became music directors,” he says. As a solo music director, he scored music in his brother Uday Tiwari’s film Strangers starring Jimmy Shergill, Kay Kay Menon, Nandana Sen and Sonali Kulkarni.
“I enjoyed scoring music for my brother’s film in which Javed saab has penned the lyrics. It was a dream come true for me as I sang one of its songs with Lataji (Lata Mangeshkar),” he smiles. Could there be another Himesh Reshammiya in the making here?
The duo have given many musical hits including Phir Milenge, Hum Tumhare aHain Sanam, Tum Bin and Bewafa Sanam.
