Jamshedpur : Bollywood singer Neeraj Shridhar regaled the crowd with his power-packed performance at Sumant Moolgaonkar Stadium at Telco.
The audience was up and dancing right from the first song. ‘Prem ki Naiyya’ (Ajab Prem ki Ghazab Kahani) and ‘Twist’ (Love Aaj Kal) he gave some of the best performances.
The inter-school fest, Wheels 2015 concluded today with overwhelming response.
The annual mega event is organised by the GET club, a body of graduate engineers who had begun their careers at Tata Motors, TML Drivelines, Tata Power, Tata Cummins Ltd and Tata Hitachi Construction Machinery.
The GET club juggles entertainment as well as social responsibility with equal élan. The objective is to make a positive contribution to the society we live in. The club and its activities are governed by the GET committee.
The GET committee is a six member body serving for a period of one year. Subsequently, the next batch of GETs takes over.
Prior to this talking to the media, he said : I’m from Jalandhar. My father worked as a producer at a radio station. My mother studied music. This inspired me pursue career in the field of music.
Whenever I went for promotions to Kolkata, Bengaluru or Hyderabad, I found people waiting to see me. In Sweden, West Indies, Trinidad and Tobago, there would be about 30,000 people in the stadium.
I didn’t have to sing, I’d stand on stage and they’d start screaming. I was a much bigger star then. He said that he returned to India and started getting good offers.
It takes a while to make people believe in your voice and your style. Also our industry is based on what is successful and you have to sing a couple of songs to show that you can do hit songs as well.
It takes a little while but once a couple of my songs came out, I had proved that my voice was good enough. It can suit actors like Saif Ali Khan and Shah Rukh Khan and Akshay Kumar.
On his future plans he said, I am tired of singing for others, now I am going to work for myself. I am composing music and also doing the playback for the same. Basically, I want to have fun with my music.
He is a popular Bollywood playback singer, music director and lyricist. Bombay Vikings became popular with remix hits like Kya Soorat Hai, Woh Chali and Chod Do Anchal.
