Sohail Sen, an Indian film composer, musician, and singer who works in Bollywood, was born on June 24, 1984. He made his film scoring debut with the little forgotten 2008 Hindi film Sirf. Later, because of his critically lauded work in What’s Your Raashee?, he became famous as a Hindi film composer (2009). Additionally, he is renowned for writing the soundtracks for the hit films Mere Brother Ki Dulhan, Ek Tha Tiger, and Gunday.

Sen is the fourth generation of musicians in his family to enter the field of film composition, and he comes from a long line of musicians who have worked in the motion picture business. His paternal grandpa Shri Shambhu Sen’s singing and his father Sameer Sen of the music direction team Dilip Sen-Sameer Sen have always had a significant impact on him.

At age six, Sen began taking music lessons. He began learning to play the tabla as a young child and then picked up the piano, drums, and rhythm instruments, among other instruments. Shri Shambhu Sen, his grandfather, taught him classical music. At the tender age of thirteen, he made his professional debut as a music director by writing the score for the telefilm Roshni, the playback for which was performed by the well-known singer Kavita Krishnamurthy. He subsequently made the decision to train as a film composer for his father for nine years.
He had a significant release in 2011 with Yash Raj Films’ top label, Mere Brother Ki Dulhan, whose soundtrack received praise from both audiences and reviewers. “Dhunki,” “Isq Risk,” and the title track all reached the top of the charts. Since Pritam had scheduling conflicts with both the Yash Raj productions Ek Tha Tiger and Dhoom 3, he took Pritam’s place as the music director for Salman Khan’s subsequent movie, Ek Tha Tiger, in 2012. Reviews for the music were all quite favorable. After Mere Brother Ki Dulhan, Sen and Ali Abbas Zafar will collaborate once more in 2014 for the film Gunday, starring Ranveer Singh, Arjun Kapoor, Priyanka Chopra, and Irrfan Khan
