Ranveer Singh debuted in 2010 with Band Baaja Baaraat opposite Anushka Sharma. His performance earned him an award for best debut and gained overnight success. Anushka was only two films old when she agreed to make the film under the banner of Yash Raj Films. The fate of the film did not rest solely with two newcomers, director Maneesh Sharma also made his directorial debut with the film. However, the film became a hit at the box office.
Ainvayi Ainvayi was rejected by the director
In a recent interview, famed music composer and singer duo Salim and Sulaiman Merchant revealed the intriguing backstory behind the song’s inclusion in the film. According to the composers, the song was initially rejected by the film’s director, Maneesh Sharma. However, determined to get their composition in the film, Salim and Sulaiman approached the producer with their catchy number. The producer, recognizing the song’s potential, decided to step in and convinced the director to record it. Recalling the incident, the producer reportedly told the director, “Mereko nahi pata tera film ka kya hoga, tera actor ka kya hoga, par ye gana hit hoga. (I don’t know what will happen to your movie or your actor, but this song will be a hit)“
Salim shared that he went to a sangeet ceremony where he heard a song in the after party and he immediately decided that Band Baaja Baaraat should have a song with after party vibes. His decision to include ‘Ainvayi Ainvayi’ in the film turned out to be genius. The energetic and spirited song composed by Salim and Sulaiman became a huge hit with the audience. The song’s infectious energy, combined with Ranveer Singh and Anushka Sharma’s captivating on-screen chemistry, made it an instant favorite at weddings and parties.
