Their presence proved to be fruitful for him and since then he is one of the groups contributing producers.
There comes a downfall in everyone’s life, and Sandeep too had to face it. He was invisible for ten long years. He gave no interviews, and even his relatives were unaware of what he is up to. But after his comeback to Bollywood he cleared that he wanted to do things for himself and that it was important for him to pursue some of his dreams. After a gap of 10 years, he felt that the music industry had totally changed and was turning more towards EDM. Being such an experienced person he feels no shame in still learning new genres. He is also in praise for the symbol of euphoria for the Youth, Yo Yo Honey Singh. He gained much popularity from the music of bollywood film, Satya. His latest big score was
Akshay Kumar starrer
