Anu Malik

Music director Anu (Anwar) Malik is the son of veteran composer Sardar Malik.

He made his Bollywood debut in 1981 with the film "Poonam". But he became successful only in the 1990's with films such as "Baazigar", for which he won a Filmfare award.

He has also won a National Award for "Refugee" and a Filmfare award for "Main Hoon Na".

His film credits include "Aks", "Fiza", "Border", "LOC Kargil", "Umrao Jaan", "No Entry", "Love Story 2050" and "Bride and Prejudice".

Malik has often been accused of plagiarising western tunes, but some of his tunes have also been used in western films. "Chamma Chamma" from "China Gate" was used in "Moulin Rouge" and "Chunari Chunari" from "Biwi No. 1" featured in "Monsoon Wedding".

He has also sung hit songs such as "Unchi hai building" and "Gori Gori".
