Himesh Reshamiyya

These days, if you switch on to any television channel or a radio channel or for that matter, listen to the music of any new Hindi movie, there are 99% chances that you will either see or hear Himesh Reshamiyya. He's all over the place.

He's unarguably the current "flavour of the month" and his "month" seems to be getting longer by the day.

I have been reading from the media that apparently he has given 29 consecutive hit songs. Of course, most of these have been sung by him. Notwithstanding his nasal voice and that most of the people I have met do not like him or his voice, there is no denying that this man is on a roll and his popularity is soaring by the day. Of course, that has left many a music director fuming. Personally, I do not like him or his music (as I think he's very repetitive), but the final verdict is that of the people and they have declared him to be a hit and so that ought to be the end of discussion.

Before he became a successful music director, Himesh Reshamiyya had to struggle a lot. He had, at a very young age, started making television serials that were aired on Zee TV. He had produced and directed few serials, but I can remember only one name i.e., Amar Prem (whose title song was sung in a very nasal manner by Kumar Sanu) and it had Shekhar Suman (who was a peak of his television career at that time). There was this another serial he had made with Shekhar Suman but I cant remember its name.

Then he got break into films which according to Himesh was thanks to Salman Khan and thereafter there was no looking back.

So folks, sit back and enjoy the Himesh assault!!!

Hey Samudrika,

The name of the serial produced and directed by Himesh Reshamaiyya with Shekhar Suman in the lead was Andaz. I think it was sometime in the year 1995-96. He also did the music for that serial.
