If the background score in Raaz 2 chilled your spine and kept you in the mysterious dark, or captivated you by the romantic music in ’Ek Tha Villain’ then thank Raju Singh, who treats music not only as his profession, but also something that teaches a way of life. He is an example of someone who breathes music. After being part of more than 300 Indian television serial projects, almost 30 ad-tunes and giving films the right mix, that they needed, his tunes have made young, as well as the old, sing and hum his compositions.

It seems that the music composer has taken the phrase ‘where words fail, music speaks’ a little too literally. Raju Singh is a music composer in the industry since 1993. He is the son of the veteran music sensation Charanjit Singh. He started his journey with a guitar in his hand. His work in making his guitar sing and his excellent talent of working out new tunes with his keyboard is what distinguishes him from the rest. At a tender age, he got his first project in 1993, where he gave music for a Hindi movie “ Sainik.” Since then, it has been a forward march for him. His talent in combining some evergreen songs with a contemporary touch makes him an astounding music composer especially for some movies like “Chandni Bar” and “ Page 3” which have won National Awards. In 2005, he won the Best Title Music and Background Score for “Sahib Biwi and Ghulam” at Indian Telly Awards. In 2008, he won the same title, for the serial “Ambar Dhara” at Indian Telly Awards. In 2009, he won the title of Background Music score for the movie “Raaz.” Recently he gave some beautiful, as well as super hit tunes for “Yamla Pagla Deewana2” “ Citylights” “ Murder 3” “Raaz 3.”

In a recent interview, Mohit Suri was recalling his friendship with Raju. He says their friendship spans for a long time. They first worked on “Zeher” in 2005, and since then Mohit says he has always been amazed by how Raju understands relationships. As a director, when Mohit feels alone, Raju fills the gaps by giving soulful background score. Mixing music for some couple of jingles, which linger in your mind for quite some time, and a dozen of movies, he understands that a fine blend of brilliance and maturity is what was needed for each project. His attempt is to understand his audience. This is probably why his sincere understanding of the subject of his films, helps him win our hearts.
