Lyricist Sameer inks five-film deal with Nikhil Advani

New Delhi, July 1 (IANS) Lyricist Sameer, best known for songs like "Kuch kuch hota hai" and "Ghoonghat ki aad mein", has been signed up for five films by Bollywood director Nikhil Advani.

"Yes, it is true," Sameer told IANS over phone from Mumbai.

"I did 'Salaam-e-Ishq' for Nikhil and the music did really well. Then he gave me the offer to write for his next film 'Chandni Chowk To China', but I refused because most of the songs were remixes.

"Now he has signed me for five of his forthcoming films. This kind of deal has never happened with any lyricist before. It's only because of our good rapport that we have signed all these films."
