Nadeem Shravan is the music composer duo, who had lent many unforgettable tunes to Indian Hindi film music. They were the most productive composers during 90s. Their melodious music displays through films like Aashiqi, Saajan, Phool Aur Kaante, Pardes, Raja Hindustani, Raaz, Deewaana and many more.
In 1972, they met each other at some function and their association started since then. The duo got their first break with the film 'Maine Jeena Seekh Liya' in 1981. But it didn't give them recognition as prominent music composers in the film industry. Followed by it they did several B-grade films until they get three big films- Lashkar, Ilaka and Hisaab Khoon Ka. But these films also didn't bring out good music.
Nadeem Shravan get there first major break with the film 'Aashiqi' in 1990. This film established brought them in the front league. Aashiqi was super hit film. It was also a special film for actor Rahul Dev and singer Kumar Sanu. It helped Kumar Sanu to boost his singing career, while it is one of the hit films of Rahul Dev. The songs from the film 'Dhire Dhire Se Meri Jindagi Mein Aana', 'Jaan-e-jigar Jaan-e-man', 'Nazar Ke Saamane' And 'Sanson Ki Zaroorat Hai Jaise' are simply unforgettable. Still today the music album of Aashiqi is one of the favorite albums for many music lovers.
Followed by Aashiqi, they found similar success with films Saajan, Dil Hai Ke Manta Nahi, Sadak, Dilwaale and Phuol Aur Kaante. All the films were hit at box office. Also its music played an important role for being successful. Their other hit films include Salaami, Kal Ki Awaaz, Deewana and Dil Hai Ke Manta Nahin.
