It's been success all the way for Himesh Reshammiya and the music director has entered 2006 with a bang - he's just released his first solo album.
Titled Aap Ka Suroor, it's out on the T-Series label and has 11 tracks.
So is this the beginning of a new career as a singer for the music director? Is Himesh going to focus on his singing, just like other composers who strayed into singing like RD Burman, Bappi Lahiri and Anu Malik?
"Nothing like that," says Himesh. "I have too much work as a composer to concentrate on singing. When I sang in Aashiq Banaya Aapne, I never imagined the song would be such a rage. After that I am repeatedly asked to sing. But I am being very selective. I'll sing for my films only when I want to.
"Whatever my singing aspirations are, you'll hear them in Aap Ka Suroor. It's no run-of-the-mill album."
But will Himesh break the jinx on music directors who cut their own non-film albums?
Even RD Burman's Pantera, now considered a collector's item and ahead of its times, failed.
