Mahesh Bhatt’s romantic drama Aashiqui established the career of composer duo Nadeem-Shravan in Hindi cinema , which featured songs like “Bas Ek Sanam Chaahiye”, “Nazar Ke Saamne”, “Main Duniya Bhula Doonga” and “Dheere Dheere” among other, all sung by Kumar Sanu and Anuradha Paudwal.

however, lately In an interview with Bollywood Hungama, Lalit Pandit was asked about the phase of Nadeem-Shravan, especially the time when the soundtrack of Aashiqui dropped. To which, Lalit said, “Honestly, Nadeem-Shravan’s music was not of our style. Most of the songs that they had done at that time were. So, Nadeem would go to Dubai, from there he would buy a lot of Pakistani cassettes, get them here reproduce. The entire industry knows this."

He furthered: “Aashiqui songs are actually Pakistani tracks, with words (retained). Many of the songs! The music of a composer should reflect their style. If you listen to ours, you’d instantly know it is Jatin-Lalit music, because everything was done by us.”

 When questioned about whether Jatin-Lalit ever took inspiration from other global music, Lalit admitted, “Inspiration is a must, even we have been inspired. But that involves a different way of working. Jatin was a truly original composer, he would get inspired by other track, but he would never completely lift a song. In fact, I was the one who would take some bits from English songs that I had heard. So I would mix bits and pieces, and only I would know what I had done. But Jatin was a pure composer."
