    Ever since the death in 1998 of Laxmikant his creative collaborator, Pyarelal has been in hibernation.

    "It wasn't as if there was a dearth of offers. But I couldn't sully my partner and my name by doing any and everything that came my way. I was willing to wait," confesses the reclusive maestro.

    The wait is finally over. The composing maverick has finally signed on to do a movie soundtrack, his first since Laxmikant's death eight years ago. "It's a film called Mr Gharib, and it's produced by Balbir Kumar with whom Laxmikant-ji and I did a film called Santosh many years ago. The film is directed by Sanjay Sarkar. The reason why I've finally agreed to working is double-fold: one, I needed to finally get back to doing what I loved the most... also, because one of my favourite actors-filmmakers Manoj Kumar is involved with Mr Gharib . If you recall, some of Laxmi-Pyare's best scores were for Manoj Kumar."

    Two of the tunes have already been finalized. And Pyarelal who created musical history with Laxmikant throughout the 1960s, 70s and 80s, is working on the other lyrics that Sameer is writing.

    Pyarelal gets nostalgic. "Do you know, Sameer started his career as a lyricist with Laxmikant and me in a film that K.C. Bokadia had produced. It's a pleasure to work with young minds. I feel I'm just starting my career."
