Personal lifeEdit

Rajesh Roshan is the son of Hindi film composer Roshan and younger brother of film director and actor Rakesh Roshan. He is also uncle to actor Hrithik Roshan, in whose films he composes many songs for example Kaho Naa Pyaar Hai (2000), Koi Mil Gaya (2003), Kaabil (2017), Krrish (2006), its subsequent sequel Krrish 3 and Kites (2010). He has a son named Eshaan and a daughter named Pashmina.

CareerEdit

Rajesh Roshan had a successful association with Basu Chatterjee, Dev Anand, Mohammed Rafi, Lata Mangeshkar and Kishore Kumar. He shot to fame with the score for Kunwara Baap and later Julie for which he won the Filmfare Best Music Director Award.[4]

Roshan scored well in the big break given by Mehmood for Kunwara Baap (1974) and then by Dev Anand in three back to back hit films: Des Pardes, Man Pasand, and Lootmaar. Then he composed melodious tunes and made Kishore Kumar sing them in films like Mama Bhanja, Doosra Aadmi, Muqaddar, Swami, Priyatama, Yehi Hai Zindagi, Ek Hi Raasta, Swarg Narak, Inkaar, Khatta Meetha, Baaton Baaton Mein, Do Aur Do Paanch, Kaamchor, Hamari Bahu Alka, Bhagwaan Dada, Ghar Sansar followed by films with Rajesh Khanna like Janta Hawaldar, Nishaan, Babu and Aakhir Kyon?.

In the 1990s, other than Laxmikant-Pyarelal and Bappi Lahiri, Rajesh was one of the few music directors who continued to give good melodious music with films like Kabzaa, Jurm and Bahaar Aane Tak (1990) – and after another dull phase, he bounced back with chartbusters like Karan Arjun (1995), Sabse Bada Khiladi (1995), Papa Kehte Hai (1996), Koyla (1997), Keemat – They Are Back, Daag: The Fire (1999), Dastak (1996), Kya Kehna (2000), Kaho Naa... Pyaar Hai (2000) and Na Tum Jaano Na Hum (2002). Roshan delivered several hit music scores pairing with his brother Rakesh, a director.
