Background[edit | edit source]

Dilip Sen is the son of renowned music director Jamal Sen who was active in the Hindi film industry soon after independence. Sameer Sen, the other half of the duo is the son of Dilip’s brother, Shambu Sen, who was a famous choreographer in the industry. Together they formed the duo called Dilip Sen - Sameer Sen.

Their maiden movie as music directors was Jagdeep's production called Soorma Bhopali which they signed in 1983. The movie released in 1988.

The duo is most famous for their musical score in the film Aaina (‘Goriya Re Goriya Re...’) and Yeh Dillagi (‘Ole Ole...’ & 'Honton Pe Bas Tera Naam Hai...') in the early ’90s, under the Yashraj banner.
