Sanjeev–Darshan is a film score composer duo[1] in the Bollywood film industry of India. The duo derives its name from the first names of its two principals, Sanjeev Rathod and Darshan Rathod. Sanjeev and Darshan are the sons of Hindi film score composer Shravan Rathod, who himself paired with music director Nadeem as the duo Nadeem-Shravan, to create super-hit music soundtracks in the 1990s. Their first released soundtrack was for the 1999 film Mann.[2][3][4]

Early life[edit]

Sanjeev was trained under Pandit Kallika Prasad, while younger brother Darshan picked up several instruments on his own. Their grandfather, Pandit Chhaturbhuj Rathod was an avid promoter of classical as well as semi-classical music. Born to a musical family, singer Vinod Rathod and musician and singer Roop Kumar Rathod are their paternal uncles.[citation needed]

Music career[edit]

Sanjeev–Darshan made their debut as music directors for a film by Mahendra Shah and Vimal Kumar which was never released. In 1998, they composed a Gujarati album for the Shree Swaminarayan Gadi Sansthan. Indra Kumar had been with the duo at their initial recording and he went on to compose around forty tunes with them. In 1999, he invited them to compose music for his film Mann, starring Aamir Khan and Manisha Koirala . The film was not a financial success, but its songs became popular.
