Nishat Khan scores Bollywood thriller
Indian sitar master Nishat Khan has scored his first feature film.  Yeh Saali Zindagi is a Bollywood romantic thriller directed by acclaimed director Sudhir Mishra (who also provided the story and the screenplay), and starring Irrfan Khan, Arunoday Singh and Chitrangada Singh.

Nishat Khan has written all the music, to lyrics by Swanand Kirkire.  The soundtrack album was released on the T-Series label in January, with the film premiere following a few weeks later:
‘The music intermeshes with the large character of the film so seamlessly that we enjoy every bit of it and want to just go home and listen to the whole album.  Nishat Khan has done complete justice to Yeh Saali Zindagi and a large part of the credit for what the film has actually turned out to be goes to him and his music.’ ( Nishtha Bhatnagar), February 2011
‘… a fantastic score that complements various moods of Saali.’
The Times of India (Blessy Chettiar), 3 February 2011
‘… it's hard to ignore another important facet of the film: the music. Swanand Kirkire’s lyrics and Nishat Khan’s music is not only a constant refrain, it adds leverage too.’
