Late music director, Aadesh Srivastava is their brother-in-law. 

This duo kick started their profession in 1991 with the film Yaara Dildara. The film bombed at the box office, but the music was a great hit. Later, they gained recognition for their compositions in Khiladi and Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikander. The song Pehla Nasha from the film Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikander was in the lips of every Indian.

Aati Kya Kandala (Aamir Khan)). 

Jaitn-Lalit had a brief stint with acting; they gave a short appearance in the movie Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikander. They appeared as judges for the famous musical show Sa Re Ga Ma Pa. 

This duo is not party bird and is withdrawn. The duo had worked together for over 16 years and then they have separated ways stating personal issues. Jatin and Lalit have also composed music as separate musicians.
