Pyarelal also said that he has nothing more to achieve and is happy doing concerts.

"I do not like the idea of working with producers who tell me to give one or two compositions in a film," he said

Pyarelal Ramprasad Sharma, one half of the famous music composing duo Laxmikant-Pyarelal, said he is ready to do music for a Bollywood film if somebody comes with a good offer.
"I am ready to compose music for a Bollywood film if a producer or a filmmaker comes with a good offer," he told PTI in an interview here.
The yesteryear Bollywood music composer is in Bangalore for a concert organised by Royal Bangalore Junction in association with Peace of Mind for which Pyarelal has brought in 60 musicians from his troupe to present hits from the golden era of Hindi music at a fund-raiser for Rotary's TEACH Mission.

Pyarelal, however, expressed reservation about working with producers who come up with an offer of making one or two compositions in a film. "I do not like the idea of working with producers who tell me to give one or two compositions in a film. I like giving music for the entire film, from background music to song composition."
He said he has nothing more to achieve and is happy doing concerts. "I have achieved everything, from people's love to accolade from Hindi film industry. I have been in the industry for the last 58 years.
"I have worked with actors of the calibre of Dilip Kumar, Raj Kapoor and Dharmendra - I enjoyed working with them - that was different era and atmosphere. Now the milieu has changed."
When asked how he rated today's film compositions, Pyarelal said it is good, but the atmosphere and the working style had changed. "The atmosphere has changed. The working style has changed. When we used to work, about 200 musicians worked at a time, but it is now all done on sophisticated equipment - somehow that zing thing is missing. But I don't say it is bad. It is good. One must understand everything in life changes and so does music," Pyarelal said.
When Asked whether Subhash Ghai misses his magical music, Pyarelal said, "Something happened - one fine morning we decided we should tread different paths as we had both worked together for a very long time. There wasn't a fight - we are still friends," Pyarelal said.
However, Pyarelal said Mr Ghai was a top filmmaker and he enjoyed working with him.
On his brother's children - Monty Sharma and Mithoon Sharma, Pyarelal said he is very happy with the good music they are giving.
Mithoon has given music for films like Zeher, Bas Ek Pal, Murder 2, Jism 2 and others. Monty has given music for Devdas, Black, Apne, Ram Leela and others.
"Have you heard the music of Ashiqui 2 and Saawariyaa? How were they? They were fantastic. They are my brothers' children. I am happy for their wonderful work, but I always feel that I should have done such work," Pyarelal said.
