Singer Shibani Kashyap, said R. D Burman’s music is truly ever lasting and one and only to have such a global impact.
The singer interacted with the media along with music composers and singers Sonu Nigam, Shantanu Moitra, Leslie Lewis, Shamir Tandon, Sandesh Shandilya, Vivek Vasvani at R.D. Burman’s 79th birth anniversary celebrations on Monday here.
Singer Sonu Nigam also expressed that he feels unlucky that he did not have the opportunity to sing for legendary music composer Rahul Dev Burman. “I feel lucky that I met Panchamda, but I also feel unlucky because he wanted me to sing in ‘1942: A Love Story’. However, at that time, I went to Delhi and was there for three months.
“When I returned to Mumbai, someone told me that Panchamda (Rahul Dev Burman) was looking for me and he was keen that I should sing a song for him but nevertheless, I still feel connected to him and his legacy will stay forever through his music.”
R D Burman’s composition recently appeared in a Iphone 8 ad, musician Pete Cannon acquired rights for the song via Blurred Recs courtesy of Saregama.
