The part­ing of An­j­jan Bhat­tacharya (cen­tre) with Harmeet Meet (right) and Man­meet Meet (left) aka Meet Broth­ers came as a shock to their fans, but Harmeet says that An­j­jan wanted to have his own iden­tity.

“An­j­jan wanted his own iden­tity be­cause Meet Bros have been there for 15 years and An­j­jan joined us only in 2010. So I am say­ing that sub­con­sciously, peo­ple would just stop at Meet Bros, and An­j­jan was not get­ting his due. Since he is like a brother, he put it very nicely to us and we agreed to it. We to­tally re­spected his iden­tity,” says Harmeet of Meet Broth­ers.

The trio has churned out hit songs such as Baby Doll, Party to Banti Hai and Chit­tiyan Kalaiyaan and are open to work­ing to­gether in the fu­ture.

While some might call it a pub­lic­ity stunt, the Meet Broth­ers in­sist that cre­at­ing sep­a­rate brands can­not be so sim­ple nor fea­si­ble.

“We are not new mu­sic di­rec­tors. It’s not easy to make sep­a­rate brands. No­body would buy it (if it was a gim­mick) be­cause you need to have sep­a­rate bank ac­counts, sep­a­rate com­pa­nies and peo­ple have to give you work sep­a­rately. A film­maker won’t give An­j­jan or us a sep­a­rate track be­cause we want to do a gim­mick,” says Harmeet.

Man­meet ex­plains, “Our ca­reers won’t sur­vive. Had this been a gim­mick, we would not have been able to sign big projects with­out An­j­jan but we are do­ing it. Even An­j­jan would have not al­lowed such a gim­mick ei­ther.”
