Rajesh Roshan had a successful association with Basu Chatterjee, Dev Anand, Mohammed Rafi, Lata Mangeshkar andKishore Kumar. He shot to fame with the score for Julie for which he won the Filmfare Best Music Director Award. The first break for him was given by Mehmood. He is the first music director who made Amitabh Bachchan sing. He usually composes music for the films that his brother Rakesh Roshan either produced or directed, such as Kaho Naa Pyaar Hai (2000), Koi… Mil Gaya (2003), Krrish (2006) and Kites (2010). He also composed the song “Jaane Tamanna” for the internationally acclaimed film Valley of Flowers (2006) by Pan Nalin.

Rajesh Roshan scored well in the big break given by Mehmood for Kunwara Baap (1974) and then by Dev Anand in three back to back hit films: Des Pardes, Man Pasand, and Lootmaar. Then he composed melodious tunes and made Kishore Kumar sing them in films like Doosra Aadmi, Muqaddar, Swami, Khatta Meetha,Baaton Baaton Mein, Yehi Hai Zindagi, Ek Hi Raasta, Swarg Narak, Inkaar, Do Aur Do Paanch followed by films with Rajesh Khanna like Nishaan, Babu and Aakhir Kyon?.
