Bollywood's music scene has been peopled time and again by composers who slowly emerge from the shadows to challenge the monopoly of bigwigs. Anand Raj Anand is one such composer who has made it to the top.

Anand, who shifted base to Mumbai in 1992, is a composer, singer and lyricist rolled into one. The young Delhi ka munda has become the current craze of the tinsel world, thanks to the success of Chorni .

Movies like Bichhoo, Hadh Kar Di Aapne have earned him enough encomium. Now he has reached a position where he can fight the hotshot music directors.

Anand Raj Anand's latest venture is Jis Desh Mein Ganga Rahta Hai starring Govinda and Sonali Bendre in the lead roles. The promos are on air and the songs are creating waves at all countdown shows.

Does the man have a formula for success? Sure he does. He has adapted himself quite well to the changing music scenario. His beats are not repetitive and he tries to garnish his stuff with folksy flavor as well.

Definitely, lady luck has smiled on him and the success of Chorni has ensured that he can work on non-filmy music albums as well. Of late he has been flooded with offers from Punjabi pop stars, who want him to compose music for their forthcoming albums.

Anand is shortly going to hit the music charts again with Sunita Rao's new release.

Besides, the musician has been signed by some big banners like Feroz Khan's Qurban Tum Par Meri Jaan, Guddu Dhanoa's Devaa and Sunny Deol's
