CIO100 2017 brings to you an exciting evening to the captivating tunes of Bombay Vikings fame Neeraj Shridhar, renowned for his excellence in blending diverse music and dance.
Remember ‘Kya Soorat Hai’, ‘Woh Chali’ ‘Hawa Mein Udati Jaaye’ and ‘Chhodh Do Aanchal’ that rocked India in the late nineties and early 2000s? The prince of those times later reinvented himself in a new avatar and is a sensation in Bollywood as well.
Growing up in Sweden as a teenager, Neeraj had developed a deep passion for western and Indian classical songs. He formed his band in 1994 and named it Bombay Vikings, marking his love for India and Sweden. They performed mostly English songs; but later he moved back into India.
His first ever album 'Kya Soorat Hai' came out in 1999 and became an instant hit. Woh Chali (2000), Hawa Mein Udati Jaaye (2002), Chhodh Do Aanchal Zamana Kya Kahega, Fusion Remixes (2004), and Zara Nazron Se Kehdo (2006) followed.
He evolved as singer and music director for many Bollywood films and television shows, and has had many hits from Bhagam Bhaag (2006) to Junooniyat (2016). He has worked with the likes of Sajid-Wajid, Salim-Sulaiman, Pritam, Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy, Vishal-Shekhar, Nadeem-Shravan, Anu Malik, Sandesh Shandilya, and Aashish Pandit.
Neeraj is joining us on the evening of August 31. Get ready for the excitement. On stage, 9 p.m., August 31, JW Marriot, Pune.
