After giving a spectacular music for Nagesh Kukunoor's Dor, the musician duo Salim and Sulaiman Merchant are now working on a sports anthem. Yes, the two are working on a song for Yash Raj's Chak De! India which will be more like a sports Anthem for India. Says Salim "Yes, we are working on a song which will become like a sports anthem for Indians. Be it any sport, the song will be about cheering the Indian team with full energy." Talking about the responsibility that Yash Raj Films has placed upon them Salim adds, "It is a very tough brief that Yash Raj has given us. But we are working hard on it."
