Mumbai, Dec 16: Music composer-duo Vishal-Shekhar had a great 2011 with their songs like ‘Chammak challo’ and ‘Ooh la la’ topping the charts. Vishal says he is elated with the fact that their song is being played across the globe.
‘Yesterday, I saw a very good article in the paper. It said, out of all the songs this year, ‘Chammak challo’ has received 51 percent votes as the number one item song of the year. And the number two item song is ‘Ooh la la’. So, we have got about 67 percent of all the songs…so I think it’s been a fantastic year for us,’ Shekhar said who along with partner Vishal will be performing at the New Year Eve’s event Seduction 2012.
Though both the songs grabbed top spots, Shekhar is happier for ‘Chammak challo’, sung by international pop star Akon.
‘I would say that ‘Chammak challo’ became very huge and popular in India as well as abroad. All the clubs were playing it. So as an Indian we are very proud that our songs are being played across the globe,’ said a gushing Shekhar who also crooned a few lines of the songs ‘Dildaara’ and ‘Raftaarein’.
The composer duo already have three films in hand for next year – Karan Johar’s ‘Student Of The Year’, Sujoy Ghosh’s ‘Kahaani’ and Dibakar Banerjee’s ‘Shanghai’.
