How SRK helped 'Burjkhalifa' composer DJ Khushi establish his name

Filed on November 3, 2020

The 'Burjkhalifa' song is earning Khushi a lot of praise.

Dj Khushi, who is currently being lauded for composing Burjkhalifa, a song in the the upcoming Akshay Kumar-starrer, Laxmii, has opened up on his journey so far, and how the tag of being the official DJ of superstar Shah Rukh Khan helped him carve a niche in the music industry.

"There was hardly any social media when I started DJing. Getting the number of any celebrity was a huge task at that time. When I came to Bombay from Delhi, I used to sit at Bandstand for hours and used to look at SRK's house and dream of working with him one day," Khushi said.

He recalls getting his "golden opportunity" during the making of Ra.One. "He (SRK) was looking for a DJ for the remix of his song Chammak challo. I sent my entry through a friend of mine. SRK saw my work and picked my version for the remix of the track. That's how my association with him started and then I continued working with him. He gave me the tag of his official DJ,” said Khushi.

"This tag has helped me a lot. Working with him definitely worked in my favour. The tag helped me to build my image and get more work. It also helped me to make good connections in the industry. SRK plays a big role in my success. I thank him for seeing talent in me and giving me good opportunities in life," he added.
