Sanjeev and Darshan are the sons of Hindi film song composer Shravan Rathod, who himself paired with music director Nadeem as the duo Nadeem-Shravan, to create super-hit music soundtracks in the 1990s. Their first released soundtrack was for the 1999 film Mann.[2][3][4]

Early lifeEdit

Sanjeev was trained under Pandit Kallika Prasad, while younger brother Darshan picked up several instruments on his own. Their grandfather, Pandit Chhaturbhuj Rathod was an avid promoter of classical as well as semi-classical music. Born to a musical family, singer Vinod Rathod and musician and singer Roop Kumar Rathod are their paternal uncles.[citation needed]

Music careerEdit

Sanjeev–Darshan made their debut as music directors for a film by Mahendra Shah and Vimal Kumar which was never released. In 1998, they composed a Gujarati album for the Shree Swaminarayan Gadi Sansthan. Indra Kumar had been with the duo at their initial recording and he went on to compose around forty tunes with them. In 1999, he invited them to compose music for his film Mann, starring Aamir Khan and Manisha Koirala . The film was an average success but its songs became hugely popular. All the songs of Mann were copied from other popular hits, a Malaysian singer also filed a case against them for copying his song, and then Ivan won the case later. "Nasha ye pyar ka nasha hain" song copied from Toto Cutungo's "l'italiano" song.
