Once a music director, now a popular actor-singer-composer, Himesh Reshammiya has come a long way. Bhushan Kumar of T-Series has snapped him up for three films. There's the modern-day Karzzzzz that everyone knows of by now.
Satish Kaushik is directing the reincarnation drama that has Urmila Matondkar playing the khalnayikaa. Then, there's Pooja Bhatt's Kajraare and finally, John Matthew Mathan's A Love Isshtory.
Kumar, we're told, has even decided to dub Reshamiya's Hindi tracks for his films in angrezi and release English audios too.
"Himesh bhai is a big name overseas. His shows are a big draw not just with the NRIs but the goras too, in Europe and in the US," says a source, explaining the reason behind the ‘brainwave'.
He adds that fans hum Reshammiya's chartbusters without understanding a word.
"The English tracks would definitely work with them," he asserts.
Though the English songs will be a literal translation of the Hindi originals, they will be written by a different lyricist keeping the overseas market in mind. Reshammiya has reportedly started taking diction classes too.
"The English songs won't be shot separately. But the production house is definitely planning to film a video or two in which Himesh bhai will be seen romancing international models," the source concludes.
