Salil had this special talent for composing background music for films. He always composed his own songs and his own background music. However, he was often asked by producers to compose the background music for films, TV-serials and documentaries. Sometimes a film had songs composed by a different music director. I have compiled a list of these 'background music only' films where Salil had composed the title music and the background music.
