Keeravani & Poet Sayeed Quadri Never Met To  Create The  Beautiful Songs  Of  Jism




Golden Globe winner  M M Keeravani never met lyricist-poet Sayeed Quadri while working on  the  beautiful  compositions  of  Jism(2003) which featured Bipasha Basu and John Abraham  sharing  sizzling chemistry.

About the mesmeric melodies of  Jism producer  Mahesh Bhatt shares,  “Keeravani whom I  named  M M Kreem for his Bollywood stint , as one needed to revamp one’s brand while moving from one phase to another, did  many fabulous  scores for  our films. He started with Criminal in 1994 with me which was a Telugu-Hindi   bi-lingual featuring Nagarjuna, Ramya Krishna and Manisha  Koirala. After  Criminal Keeravani got his first Hindi project Iss Raat  Ki Subah Nahin.I  suggested Keeravani’s name  to  Sudhir Mishra and Amit Khanna  who  back then ran a music-film production company Plus Channel. That’s how Keeravani  got the opportunity to do Iss Raat  Ki Subah Nahin.”

Thereafter  Keeravani/Kreem  did  a number  of soundtracks for Mahesh Bhatt’s production including the timeless  Zakham and Jism. For  the latter Keeravani and  lyricist  Saeed Quadri did not  meet at all.
