We invite you to join us for an unforgettable night of Bollywood music and nonstop entertainment. Sukhwinder and Kanika are amongst the top playback singers in the industry today, and together they have in their repertoires countless hits - from classics like “Chaiyya Chaiyya” to contemporary hits like “Jugni Ji” and songs from the Happy New Year soundtrack! Kanika and Sukhwinder are known for their breathtaking, energetic, and vivacious performances and are sure to have you dancing in your seats all night long.
Sukhwinder Singh is an internationally-recognized singer, from Amritsar, Punjab. Singh got his break in the movie Karma. However, he wanted to fine tune and enhance himself as a singer and performer. So, he took a sabbatical and left Mumbai to tour England and America to see, hear, and understand various forms of music. After broadening his musical horizons, he returned to Mumbai to kick-start his musical career.
He skyrocketed to fame for the release of "Chaiyya Chaiyya,” for which he won the Best Male Playback Award at the 1999 Filmfare Awards. He later gained more international fame for singing "Jai Ho" from the film Slumdog Millionaire, for which he won an Academy Award and a Grammy Award. Amongst his other hits are songs from Taal, Earth, Water, Meenaxi, and Raavan. He has also recorded Tamil songs for A.R.Rahman, and released a Punjabi album called Munda Southhall Da with T. Singh.
Kanika Kapoor is relatively new to the Bollywood scene, and her meteoric rise to fame over the span of a few short years is incredible. Kanika was raised in Lucknow and started to study classical music at the age of 12. She studied extensively with her teacher, Ganesh Prasad Mishra, and accompanied him to his concerts around the country.
In 2012, Kapoor rose to widespread fame when she released the music video "Jugni Ji", featuring Dr. Zeus. The track went on to become one of the biggest singles of 2012. Her success continued with the release of “Baby Doll” in 2014, and another collaboration with Dr. Zeus for the song "Lovely" in Happy New Year, which featured Deepika Padukone. In the 2015, she released “Chittiyaan Kalaiyaan" in Roy and "Desi Look" in Ek Paheli Leela.
Apart from concerts and tours, she has also been signed by an NGO for children, as their brand ambassador, where she promoted the cause of children's education.
