Illuminated Artiste: Himesh Reshammiya

BollyCurry switches gears to a man that oozes an aura of distinction; a man who has made his name a household regular and a man who has defined modern music in the Bollywood industry.

The month of October brings a fresh personality to grace the prestigious position of an Illuminated Artiste. BollyCurry switches gears to a man that oozes an aura of distinction; a man who has made his name a household regular and a man who has defined modern music in the Bollywood industry. That commendable man is no other than Himesh Reshammiya.

This forty one year old Gujarati began his musical career, like many others, upon the recognition of Salman Khan, with the film Pyaar Kiya To Darna Kya (1998) where he composed the music alongside the likes of Jatin Lalit and Sajid-Wajid. Prior to this, Reshammiya acted in several television series and had composed and sung the soundtrack for them all after deciding to take up a musical career at the tender age of eleven to fulfill his father's dreams.

After his Bollywood break, Reshammiya used this golden opportunity to build his career on a strong foundation and thus, has since been rising to the top and vowing to remain on the pinnacle of success. This is proven by the many awards and accolades that this talented man has garnered in his sixteen year old career. Initially, he was only recognized as a music composer after the success of Tere Naam (2003) and Aashiq Banaya Aapne (2005) until his singing talents took the driver's seat after churning out major hits as a playback singer in Aashiq Banaya Aapne.

This paved way to a path that led Reshammiya to produce hits as both, a music composer and playback singer for various blockbusters including Bodyguard (2011), Khiladi 786 - Made in Punjab (2012), Kick (2014) and Humshakals (2014). However, Reshammiya has also proved that he possessed an acting bone after he debuted in Aap Kaa Surroor - The Real Love Story in 2007.

Till date, Himesh Reshammiya is known as a music director, writer, singer, actor, producer and lyricist after acquiring success in all these areas. To commemorate the occasion, BollyCurry has compiled a short list of Reshammiya's most successful soundtracks.
