He became famous with his Song GF BF, today Gurinder Seagal is known for his work in films like Nawabzaade and Race 3. He sure has come a long way in his musical career today. Nawabzaade also marked his debut as a solo music composer. In an exclusive interview with HotFridayTalks.com, Gurinder talks about his journey so far.
As a solo music director, Nawabzaade is your first Bollywood movie. How did the project come to you?
When GF BF became a hit, Remoji (Remo D’souza) approached me and gave me the entire script and put all his trust in me, without asking me if I can do it or not. He believed in me blindly and offered me the songs and the background music.
How was the whole experience?
It was pretty challenging because it is my first film and I had to do situational songs, which I had never done before. What I like about Bhushanji is also that he knows what songs will click and what won’t and that really helps. Earlier, I did compose songs for Race 3 and Tutak Tutak Tutiya, but those songs were promotional and not situational so this was challenging. This includes the background score as I have given a new theme to every actor.
How did all this interest in music and songs begin?
When I was in London, I use to write, I loved writing. So I started my career as a lyricist, then moved on to being an independent artist, until T-Series gave me my big break in India in the form of my first song, GF BF with Jacqueline Fernandez and Sooraj Pancholi, directed by Remo Sir.

It is said that you always get your songs programmed internationally. Why?
That’s true and that is because I have worked in London, Canada, and Russia, for quite a long time, when I wasn’t in India and with an exception of Aditya Dev, I don’t know a lot of programmers in India, who will understand what I want. Since music is all about sounds these days, I have a massive team internationally where people have new sounds.f I am getting paid for a song, I don’t save it, but put most of it in creating a good song.
What is the difference between music composition and programming? Because a lot of times people confuse the two.
Once a lyricist gives you a song, you need to compose it first meaning we need to give melody to those words. Then, once that is done, the composer sits with the programmer and tells them if they want keys or guitar etc. at a specific point in the song.
What advice will you give to those aspiring to make a career in music?
It is very important to be familiar and keep yourself updated with the latest technology and sound. But the biggest thing needed is passion and dedication. If one lacks that then it really doesn’t work out no matter how talented one may be.
What are your upcoming projects?
I have a lot of interesting Bollywood projects in the pipeline but I can’t talk much about them right now. Besides that, I am also focussing more on singles right now and some collaborations with T-Series.
Here’s wishing this talented man All The Best!
