Sachin–Jigar have created music at various platforms from theatre to television soaps to jingles. They must have done not less than 500 plays and not less than 5000 television episodes for various genres and channels. Jigar was assisting music director Rajesh Roshan where he met Amit Trivedi, who in turn introduced him to Sachin. Later that year they joined their hands and started assisting Pritam in setting up musical arrangements.
They then programmed and arranged for almost all music directors in Bollywood from A.R. Rahman, Amit Trivedi, Anu Malik and Nadeem-Shravan to Sandesh Shandilya, Pritam, Vishal–Shekhar etc., before they stepped in to be independent composers in 2009.
In 2009, they composed one song for the film Life Partner, which primarily featured songs by their mentor Pritam. Then in 2011, their first assignment as an independent music director duo was for the film F.A.L.T.U which included the hit songs "Le Ja Tu Mujhe" & "Char Baj Gaye (Party Abhi Baaki Hai)". In 2011, they scored for Hum Tum Shabana & Shor in the City. In the latter, the song Saibo, sung by Shreya Ghoshal and Tochi Raina, was specially appreciated by critics as well as masses and the song Karma Is A Bitch became a huge hit.
After that, they composed music for Tere Naal Love Ho Gaya (2012), one song each for Kyaa Super Kool Hain Hum (2012), OMG: Oh My God! (2012) and Ajab Gazabb Love (2012), full albums for ABCD: Any Body Can Dance (2013) and Jayantabhai Ki Luv Story (2013), one song for Himmatwala (2013), two songs for I, Me Aur Main (2013), and full albums for Go Goa Gone (2013) and Ramaiya Vastavaiya (2013).
They next composed music for the film Issaq and collaborated with Yash Raj films via the highly successful Shuddh Desi Romance directed by Maneesh Sharma.
In 2014, they composed three original songs for the film Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania produced by Karan Johar under the banner of Dharma Productions and directed by Shashank Khaitan which had hit songs such as 'Saturday Saturday' & 'Samjhavan', composed by their album collaborators Sharib-Toshi. It was the first time for the duo working for Dharma Productions. The second album that year was the Akshay Kumar starrer Entertainment directed by the famous writer duo Sajid-Farhad, while their third album that year came with Happy Ending, written and directed by Raj & DK. They ended the year with a hit song, "Dance Basanti", for the film Ungli, starring Emraan Hashmi.
In 2015, their first film was Badlapur whose first single "Jee Karda" was released on 9 December 2014 and was an instant hit. Another single "Jeena Jeena" was released on 15 January 2015 which was a blockbuster song. The album for Disney's ABCD 2 became a hit as well. The song "Sun Sathiya" is widely regarded by many as one of the favourites from this album. Later that year, they composed two songs for Hero, a remake of Subhash Ghai's original film of the same name, which marked their first collaboration with actor-producer Salman Khan.
The next year, they composed for A Flying Jatt. In 2017, they came back with two original songs for Hindi Medium, which also had the chartbuster song, "Suit Suit", sung by Guru Randhawa. They next composed for the Ayushmann Khurrana-Parineeti Chopra starrer Meri Pyaari Bindu, the Kangana Ranaut starrer Simran and Sanjay Dutt starrer Bhoomi, while also composing songs and score for A Gentleman, which included the famous "Bandook Meri Laila".
