What is it though that truly makes a singer win our hearts? It’s the voice, yes, but one that’s unique. And a singer who can give us a distinct voice with a more distinct style is the one we give our hearts too. Just like we gave our hearts to Himesh Reshammiya, he of the inimitable nasal tone that’s still hard to forget.
Himesh Reshammiya is an Indian actor, music director, lyricist, composer, producer, singer, screenwriter and film distributor who predominantly works in Bollywood film industry.
Himesh’s style of singing earned him a million fans, overnight. One after the other, his songs would become a rage and their remixes could breathe life to any party. What followed next was a trail of chartbusters, like Jhalakh Dikhlaja, Tum Saanson Mein, Aashiqui Mein Meri and many more. There was a time when every Himesh song would find a place in the top-rated charts of the year.
Right when he was at the peak of his singing career, Himesh took a step further and made Aap Kaa Surroor (the movie). The biggest surprise hit of the year, this movie’s numbers at the box office were clear proof of Reshammiya’s loyal fan army.
But like all things else, this one also saw a downfall. He shifted his focus to acting and the singing that made him a hit took a backseat. With fewer songs being sung by him, people slowly started to move over the whole ‘nasal-voice-singing’ concept. And what made it worse was that his movies weren’t doing that well either.
Love him or loathe him, we’ve never had anyone as unique as Himesh Reshammiya. And no one as original!
