Thereafter, due to some personal reasons, he did not tie up with Bhansali.  His following musical ventures did not perform very well. A few years later, he got an opportunity as a composer in the movie “Kisna: The Warrior Poet”.

This film was directed by Subhas Ghai and he chose Ismail when A.R. Rahman left it to execute an international assignment. This film became a box office hit and Ismail’s outstanding music direction confused the audience and, therefore, they started to speculate that the songs belonged to A.R Rahaman gharana.

He glorified the seat of a Judge in the famous TV show “Sa Re Ga Ma Pa  Challenge 2005” and “Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Challenge 2007″ aired on Zee TV. He also appeared as a judge in other music shows like ” Amul Star Voice of India 2″ and “Bharat Ki Shaan: Singing Star- Season 2”, telecasted on DD National.
