Lyricist Kunaal Vermaa: It’s a dream come true to write for Salman Khan
Kunaal has penned the new dance track Zoom Zoom from Radhe: Your Most Wanted Bhai
Lyricist Kunaal Vermaa, known for songs like Tum Hi Aana from Marjavaan and Chale Aana from De De Pyaar De, is back with a massy track, Zoom Zoom, for Salman Khan's Radhe: Your Most Wanted Bhai.
Primarily known for writing sad and romantic songs, Zoom Zoom is an out-and-out dance number by Kunaal.
Talking about the song, Kunaal shares, “This is my first collaboration with Sajid-Wajid and the last song I jammed with both of them. After a few days Wajid bhai left us. They gave me a humming audio and asked me to write some quirky lyrics on it and eventually, I succeeded. Since then, I and Sajid bhai have been working frequently on so many tracks together.”
Kunal shares he is a huge fan of the Sajid-Wajid and Salman Khan combo. “I didn’t want to let go of this opportunity. I presented the lyrics after a couple of days and Sajid sir looked at me and said, 'Kamaal kiye re chore tune.' From there to here, we have become buddies.”
Earlier, Kunaal has penned popular songs such as Hasi Ban Gaye (Humari Adhuri Kahani), Duniya (Luka Chuppi), Tum Hi Aana (Marjavaan), Chale Aana (De De Pyaar De), Pal (Jalebi), Malang (Malang), Ghar Se Nikalte Hi (Armaan Malik single), and others.
He has also collaborated with international artists like Marshmallow, Jeson Derulo and Dua Lipa.
Kunaal reveals he was in college when Wanted (2009) got released. It became his most favourite film of Salman's. “It seems like a dream come true. Every time while watching Wanted, I'd think, 'Why isn't a song of mine in the film?' I used to imagine him dancing to my lyrics, and here comes Zoom Zoom.”
