Mumbai: He composed music for critically acclaimed ‘Mr And Mrs Iyer’ and now tabla maestro Ustad Zakir Hussain is eager to make music for Bollywood films again.

"The problem is that I`m here always for a very less time and to give music in a Bollywood film you have to be here because producers can call you any time to make changes in the song; so it becomes a little difficult for me to do it," said Hussain who is based in US.

"But it has been a dream because I used to play tabla in the recordings of Madan Mohan and Naushad; so even I had a desire to compose music for Hindi films. So whenever I get a chance and if time allows, I would love to do it," he added.

In the past, the Grammy winner has composed soul-stirring music for Sai Paranjape`s ‘Saaz’ (1998) and for an Indo-American production ‘For Real’ (2009).
