Born in a Kashmiri Pandit family in Meerut, UP, Kher’s first brush with music happened at a young age. His father was a musician, inclined towards folk music and that’s where his own fascination for the art started. When he was all of 14, he left home in search of a guru, who could teach him everything about classical as well as folk music. He believed isolation was required to hone his craft. Kailash Kher extensively listened to musicians like Pandit Bhimsen Joshi and later the likes of Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, Lata Mangeshkar, and other contemporaries to learn the art of music.

He came up with with his own album initially and then slowly entered the Bollywood world. Here he gave some incredible musical gems which are still making place into playlists of many fans. The Padmashri awardee sang for various genres and any various languages. It’s truly said that music needs no language and Kailash Kher has proved it.

Kher forayed into the music industry by singing jingles for ad films. He got his Bollywood break in the 2003 film Andaaz with the song “Rabba Ishq Naa Hove”, but he shot to fame with the super hit number “Allah Ke Bande”.

Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety

Mumbai, Jan 22: The makers of “Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety” have announced that the film will now release on February 23 in the wake of the changes in the Bollywood calendar due to “Padmaavat” and “Pad Man”.

The film was earlier to release on February 9, a date when “Pad Man” and “Aiyaary” are slated to hit the screens.

The makers did not think it was beneficial for anyone if three films of this size release on the same date. So, they decided to postpone it.

“We are all aware of the recent developments with regards to release dates. It didn’t seem logical to stick to a Friday so crowded,” Luv Ranjan, writer and director of “Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety”, told IANS.

A new-age love triangle set in Delhi and Uttar Pradesh, the film is produced by T-Series’ Bhushan Kumar, Krishan Kumar and Luv Films’ Luv Ranjan and Ankur Garg. It features Kartik Aaryan, Nushrat Bharucha and Sunny Singh.

The Bollywood calendar got shaken up after Akshay Kumar decided to shift his much-awaited “Pad Man” to February 9 from the January 25 date, leaving the pre-Republic Day release window open for a solo release for Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s controversial drama “Padmaavat”.

When “Padmaavat” was announced to have a clash with “Pad Man”, the makers of “Aiyaary” had altered its release date from January 25 to February 9.

Now, “Pad Man” and “Aiyaary” will once again be competing at the box office.
