Biography

Rajasthan, India (1992 – 2006)

Jatin-Lalit are a Bollywood film composer duo consisting of Jatin Pandit and his younger brother Lalit. They have written the scores for such films as Khiladi, Khamoshi, Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge, and Kuch Kuch Hota Hai. Jatin-Lalit is their professional name and appears on the covers of their music CDs and DVDs.

Jatin and Lalit were born into the Mewati gharana of Jodhpur in Rajasthan, India, and are nephews of classical exponent Pandit Jasraj. They received their musical education primarily from their father, Pandit Pratap Narayan. They were also taught guitar and piano by Laxmikant-Pyarelal, the father of Pyarelal Ramprasad Sharma.

Bollywood actresses Sulakshana Pandit and Vijeta Pandit are their sisters, and music director Aadesh Shrivastava is their brother-in-law, being married to the younger of the two sisters, Vijeta.

They began their career in 1992, composing music for the Hindi movie Yaara Dildara and the famous soundtrack of the movie was ” Bin tere sanam… “. They were first noticed for their work on the soundtrack of the movie Khiladi and for “Pehla Nasha”, a romantic song from the movie Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikander. Their compositions are strongly influenced by R. D. Burman’s style of music making. Towards the second half of the nineties, they were among the most sought after music directors in the Indian film industry.

The duo has worked with a variety of lyricists and singers including Javed Akhtar, Anand Bakshi, Udit Narayan, and Kumar Sanu. During the last few years of their joint career, their music albums contained several songs composed by other musicians. This practice was not liked by Jatin-Lalit; however, the producer and director insisted on it.
