\Guru Randhawa’s musical journey is proof that good things will come to those who are hard-working and dedicated to their art. This singer, songwriter, and composer, was a Punjabi sensation and rage on the internet much before his tryst with Bollywood began.
Born Gursharanjot Singh Randhawa, Guru started his musical journey by doing small shows in the districts of Punjab. Today, he is one of the top musicians in India and has given us numerous foot tapping numbers such as Ban Ja Tu Meri Rani from Tumhari Sulu, Suit Suit from Hindi Medium and High Rated Gabru from Nawabzaade. Guru has reached a point in his career where B-town flicks are considered incomplete without his music.
As a youngster, Guru listened to and drew inspiration from musical legends such as Gurdas Mann, Babbu Mann and Hans Raj Hans. As a matter of fact, since he was born and brought up in Punjab, he could also listen to the songs of Pakistani singers such as Abrarul-Haq and Sajjad Ali on the radio.
