Speaking with ETimes, Sajid Khan said that now his name is Sajid-Wajid and it will remain like that till the end. He said, “I don’t want people to call me Sajid Khan, so I have adopted Wajid as my surname. Now, my name is Sajid Wajid and that’s how it will be till the end. So what if he isn’t physically present, I feel his presence all the time.” Talking about work, the music composer added, “I have started composing tunes I never thought I would and I think it’s because of him. I feel that Wajid is with me during those times.”

It is extremely difficult to fill that void.” The music composer continued, “After I lost him, I told Salman (Khan) bhai, ‘The day I feel I don’t have the fire in me, I will tell you that I am done’. He has been a great support and saw me through the difficult phase. The confidence I feel today and the fire inside me is burning even more.”
