New Delhi, July 7: It is Kailash Kher’s birthday. For those who are ardent fans of Indian music, may not need any introduction of this man.

Padma Shri Kailash kher is known for his Sufi songs. He has sung more than 700 songs.

He has mesmerised us in not one, not two, but nine languages – Hindi, Nepali, Tamil, Malayalam, Telugu, Kannada, Bengali, Odia as well as Urdu! His sufi style, earthy tone and raw voice is just what can soothe you when you are soul tired.

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”.

The soulful song touched million of hearts and yes there is no replacement of this song till now!

Singer Kailash Kher is all set to release the video of his single “Bhole Chale” on his birthday.

The 43-year-old singer, whose song came out last year as an audio track, will release the video version of the single under the banner Kailasa Records today.

The “Teri Deewani” singer said he wanted to give a gift to all the music nomads and fellow devotees of Lord Shiva in the month of Shravan.

Kailash added that he has always looked up to the Mahadev “for His personality, the situation that moulds and destroy him but to never give up but look forward to a new beginning.”

Naseeruddin Shah

Mumbai, April 24: Iconic actor Naseeruddin Shah who feels disturbed about the recent barbaric rape and murder cases of young girls, says that more rape cases are reported to police and media these days, as compared to earlier, which is “a positive sign”.

Asked at the trailer launch of his upcoming film “Hope Aur Hum” on Monday for his opinion about the rape and murder of an eight-year-old child in Jammu and Kashmir’s Kathua, he said: “Well, rape is not a new phenomenon, such horrors have always happened; but the positive thing is, these days such cases are reported more.

“In fact, there is a very wonderful thing that read yesterday in a newspaper where a rape survivor was saying that why should the victim has to hide her face? It, in fact, the accused, who committed the crime should be ashamed, they should hide their faces. It’s a threatful situation… I guessait’s a good thing that media is so alert about all these things nowadays.”

“It surely makes our morning horrifying, as the moment you open the newspaper, such news appears. But it is good that such incidents are talked about.”

Naseeruddin admitted that he doesn’t know if this is the solution.

“We are talking about a generational change of mindset, that cannot happen overnight. What we can do, is to trend set the example in our personal lives. We cannot keep on policing or not every girl possibly keeps a pistol or learns martial arts. It has to begin with us, with each one of us,” said the veteran actor.

The trailer launch was attended by the cast and crew of the film including actress Sonali Kulkarni, Naveen Kasturia, along with child actors of the film and director Sudip Bandyopadhyay.
