You may love him, you may hate him, but you certainly can’t ignore him. Music composer and reality show judge Anu Malik, who shot to fame in the 1990s with films like Baazigar, Phir Teri Kahani Yaad Aayee and Sir, is back on the small screen.
Malik, 50, is set to don the hat of a judge for the upcoming fourth season of Sony’s talent based reality show, Entertainment Ke Liye Kuchh Bhi Karega.
Talking about the same, an excited Malik says, “I am really looking forward to the show’s new season. I can guarantee that viewers will get to see much entertainment and fun in this season.”
Malik teams up again with choreographer-turned-director Farah Khan, his co-judge on the show, who was often seen poking fun at him in the show’s previous seasons.
Talking about Farah and the chemistry they share, Anu says, “I know she hates my shayari but the fact is that we both have a great bond and that is what I believe viewers look forward to in the show.”
Malik, who’s last composition Tinku Jiya from the film Yamla Pagla Deewana, became quite a hit, says that he is quite busy with several projects in his kitty, including a film by Nitin Parashar and Feroz Nadiawala.
On being asked about his views on the current music scene in Bollywod, Malik feels that the melody is missing from Hindi film songs these days. “ I think we all want to hear great melodies with great lyrics. But sadly, today lot of musicians make music on their computers and that is why the songs don’t last so much. Film industry should wake up to this before it’s too late,” Malik signs off.
