For those who have grown up in the 90s, Udit Narayan has been an integral part of those movie-watching years. From the time the songs of Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak released in the late 80s to the current day, his soothing, mellifluous voice has been a part and parcel of our lives. If you are among the many who love to hum Kuch Kuch Hota Hai (KKHH), Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge (DDLJ), Qayamat se Qayamat Tak (QSQT) songs even today, then there is a triple treat for you this weekend. Udit Narayan will be in town for a live performance along with Kumar Sanu and Alka Yagnik. Together, they formed the troika that defined the music of the 90s and it is your chance to relive them!
Udit Naryaan, in an exclusive chat with Masala! says he is thrilled to be in Dubai. “Mazaa Aaayega,” he promises the audience. Incidentally, this is the first time he is performing with his colleagues in Dubai. “It’s been a long time since I have come here, I think I performed in Dubai about five years ago,” says Udit, adding that he is fascinated by the malls and the shopping in the city.
As for performance, he says people all over the world have pretty much the same tastes. So the songs of KKHH, DDLJ and other Shah Rukh numbers, are still hugely popular and are the most demanded by fans. There was a time when Udit was almost called the de facto voice of Shah Rukh especially given his inclination towards softer and more romantic songs which were the hallmarks of King Khan’s cinema.
Udit will be joined by two other legends who have a massive fan following of their own. Kumar Sanu ruled the 90s with songs from Aashiqui, Dil Hai Mi Maanta Nahi and Sajan, to name just three random films, breaking all records. Alka Yagnik, of course, teamed up with both Udit and Sanu numerous times. Together, they are sure to bring back the magic of the 90s alive. Watch their show at World Trade Centre from 9pm onwards!
