Kulwinder Dhillon (1975 – 19 March 2006) was a Indian Punjabi singer, who had the hit songs like "Kacherian Ch Mele Lagday" or "Paya Lengha Sheshian wala, boliyan".[1]

Career[edit]

Dhillon started his career with his debut album Kacheriyan Ch Mele Lagde that had the hit song "Boliyan", which got a lot of airplay on the radio. In 2002, he released his album, Glassi Khadke; it was hit and the popular song in this album was Mashooq. Dhillon made his career with his third, smash hit album College in 2003 which is still selling. The most popular song on the album was "Kalli Kite Mil". Though this was not a fast-paced tune, the album was redone later for an international release and the song was converted to a hardcore Bhangra, fast-paced song.

"Kalli Kite Mil Kujh Kahengi Ta Nahi " made Dhillon widely popular. He later released Velli in 2005 that had just built upon his success with his previous album. It became an instant hit . The album was enjoyed by all throughout the world and nothing had to be changed to appeal to the international crowd. Most of the lyrics he sang for the albums were by Balvir Boparai, who is famous for his album Hostel. He also released another album, Jatt Driver Fauji, which contained some of his new and some popular tracks.

Death[edit]

He died in a road accident on the Phagwara-Banga road, near Behram village, on 19 March 2006.[2]

According to sources, the accident occurred when the Honda City by which Punjabi Singer Kulwinder Dhillon and his friend Baljinder Billa were travelling, went out of control and collided against a roadside tree.[1]

Kulwinder Dhillon had just released an album titled Akhara about two days ago. His other albums are "Gareeba Ne Ki Pyar Karna," "Teri Tasveer," "Viah De Vajey" and several Dharmik albums. He has left behind a wife Gurpreet Kaur and son Armaan Dhillon.[1]
