I got the break I was desperately looking for. I was offered QSQT (Qayamat se Qayamat Tak) in which I was supposed to sing all the tracks for the hero. The movie was a flop till the second week of its release and I started to feel this was the end of my career. Then, I don’t know what miracle happened—the movie became a super duper hit thereafter. You won’t believe that when I went to watch the movie in the first week, even I was disappointed. People were saying the movie was not up to the mark and they were lambasting the Papa Kehte Hain song. But, the music became a hit. Aditya was born at this time and it was a divine coincidence. Before his birth, my life was a disaster—it wasn’t even a struggle—it was a disaster. There was no house, no money, nothing. But after QSQT and Aditya’s birth, I never looked back. I got Rs 1,000 in cash after the first song recording and felt like I had received everything. At that time, it was equivalent to a lakh now and money was valued then. QSQT paid me a handsome amount of Rs 3,000-5,000 per song. I remember, I was jumping with joy, thinking, ‘Kamaal hai yaar, miracle ho gaya. (Wow! It’s a miracle!)’And, for that, I am indebted to Nasirji, Mansoor Khan saab and Anand-Milindji.
