The music launch of the sports drama, Khwaabb, saw Salman Khan stealing the show with his humourous one-liners and trivia related to the crew members of the film. But, he also took the opportunity to praise the music composer of the film, Sajjad Ali Chandwani and background music composer, Amal Malik. “I know Amal as he had composed some songs for my last release, Jai Ho. Zaid (Ali Khan – director) made me hear a few music loops and I think he has done an exceptional job. The same goes for Sajjad, who is extremely talented. The film might have just three songs, but they are very powerful,” stated Khan. While most launch events see the unveiling of audio CDs, the makers along with music label, Junglee, decided to opt for a digital music launch instead. “We have just three songs in the album and launching the music on digital platforms looked like an appropriate option. There wasn’t any need to fill the album with unnecessary songs which don’t fit into the film,” stated the director.
The album has two songs composed by Chandwani, while Sandeep Chowta has been roped in to compose the title track, which has been sung by Sonu Nigam. The other two, TV ko dekh, a folksy rustic track and Shamein, has been sung by Kailash Kher and Rahat Fateh Ali Khan, Shreya Ghoshal respectively. Lyricist Sameer has penned the title track, while the other two are written by Turaz, who had earlier penned songs for films like Guzaarish and Baat Bann Gayi. The album is currently available for download on iTunes and other platforms.
