Mumbai: Himesh Reshammiya, the man who declared four years ago that he would compose music exclusively for the movies in which he would be casted as lead actor, has finally lifted the self imposed ban for Vipul Shah’s next. The music czar is all set to return as music director for the sequel of Akshay Kumar starrer ‘Namaste London’. Interestingly, the original was the last film that Reshammiya worked on in 2007 before restricting his talent to his own films.

Talking to a daily, an industry insider shared with us, “Himesh was a on a roll as a music director and then as a singer. However, when he decided to compose music only for the films he was in, the entire industry was shocked. Now finally, after almost four years, he is back.”

Further adding, the source said, “‘Namastey London’ was his last film for an outside banner as a music director. He will work on ‘Namstey London 2’ with Vipul and Akshay. Though Himesh still hasn’t decided whether he’ll be singing for the film, he already has a repertoire of around 500 tunes.”

It is also revealed that the music will be under Himesh’s recently formed music banner HR Musik. While Himesh might have abandoned his decision to do music exclusively for films he was cast in, he has decided that he will only do films under his own music company.
