Now, Dj Khushi Soni is cresting on the waves of success after being christened remix badshah by Bollywood fraternity, with the ever-increasing craze for his official remix for Bollywood Movies Ra One (Track: Chammak Challo by Akon), Desi Boyz – Jhak Maar Ke, Tum Mile – Tum Mile, Main & Mrs Khanna – Rabba, Kaminey – Kaminey, De Dana Dan – Rishtey Naate and Always Kabhi Kabhi – Always Kabhi Kabhi, and now the latest craze is Chikni Chameli that changed Katrina Kaif’s thoughts on remixes. Says she, “I always thought that a remix of Chikni Chameli would not be great but after hearing this version, I feel really good. SRK loved DJ Khushi’s work in Chammak CHallo so much that he went all out to promote it. Says SRK, “I love DJ Khushi’s remix and so wanted it to be part of the album.” SRK even went on to make a video of the remix. Shahid Kapoor, who danced to Chammak Challo remix at a recent awards function surprised DJ Khushi with his statement when introduced to him… “I know you DJ Khushi. I am dancing on your remix.” And now DJ Khushi has his eyes set on Bollywood firmly with his next few Bollywood busters coming up, this quarter.
Says he, “I am planning to also go global. With Akon coming to India, the global market is also more open to music from India. It has worked for us as much.”
