Sachin Sanghvi and Jigar Saraiya, the music duo from Mumbai, are set to perform live on November 19. Bursting on to the scene in their first film as an independent composing duo for F.A.L.T.U (2011), their songs immediately became the party anthems of the year. Over the next half a decade, they have composed for a variety of genres in various different movies and are responsible for hits such as the hugely popular ‘Saibo’ from Shor in the City, ‘Bezubaan’ from ABCD, ‘Dance Basanti’ from Ungli, ‘Jeena Jeena’ from Badlapur and many more.
