Wajid Khan, of the popular Sajid-Wajid jodi, left the whole world in a state of sorrow as he left for his heavenly abode in the wee hours of yesterday morning. People from all over have spoken up about him. He was mighty close with Salman Khan and the rest of the Khandaan. Now, Atul Agnihotri has spoken up about what Wajid Khan meant to everyone in the Salman Khan household.
Atul Agnihotri spoke to Bollywood Bubble before the release of ‘Bharat’. Have a look at the chat right here:
Speaking with Mid Day, about the death of Wajid Khan, Atul said, “When I was making Hello , we needed a special track for Bhai who was making a special appearance in the film. Asking Sajid-Wajid to compose the song was a no-brainer. The duo created it [Hello hello] so quickly. One can’t even begin to imagine what Sajid is going through now. Whenever Sajid was stuck in the middle of a tune, Wajid used to help him, and vice versa. It was a great collaboration. The entire Khan parivaar shared a strong bond with Sajid-Wajid. His love for our family, particularly Salman [Khan] bhai, was unconditional. Many of Bhai’s hit tracks were composed by them. To me, he was a friend first, a colleague later. Whenever we had to create an important song on short notice, we could only think of them. Wajid could get things done quickly, without compromising on the quality of the creations.”
Indeed, Wajid Khan and his Jodi with Sajid Khan had been one of the most successful ones giving audiences chartbuster hits after hits. Wajid will always be there in our prayers.
