Himesh Reshammiya is an Indian music director, singer, producer, lyricist, distributor and actor. His father, Vipin Reshammiya was also a music composer and director for Gujarati film and TV.

Music and film career[edit]

As a singer, he churned out songs like "Aashiq Banaya Aapne", "Tera Suroor", "Zara Jhoom Jhoom", "Jhalak Dikhlaja", "Shakalaka Boom Boom", "Hookah Bar", "Chalao Na Naino Se", "Tandoori Nights" which were popular. Reshammiya's music has a style of composition based on a fusion of Western and Indian classical music accompanied by techno beats. He started his acting career with his debut film, Aap Kaa Surroor.[1]

In August 2010, it was announced that music video director Roman White is going to direct videos of Reshammiya's first international album in English, named @ Da Edge, which was to be released in 2016; [needs update] the album to be released in 122 countries.[citation needed] Reshammiya was the first Indian singer to perform at the Wembley Arena and the Heineken music hall in Amsterdam.[2]

Before becoming a music director, Reshammiya produced several television serials, including Amar Prem and Andaaz on Zee TV. He also composed the title song of both.

Reshammiya was actively involved in mentoring and judging the singing competition, Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Challenge on Zee TV. His group was known as Jai Mata Di Let's Rock Gharana. He was the winning mentor of the show in 2007. In 2009, Vaishali Mhade, a female contestant from his Rock Gharana, won the singing competition. He is also the team captain, judge and mentor on Star Plus's show, Music Ka Maha Muqqabla for the team Himesh's Warriors. Reshammiya was also the judge of the musical reality show Sur Kshetra which was telecasted on Sahara One. Reshammiya appeared as the special guest in the Grand Finale of 'Jo Jeeta Wohi Superstar' 2 where he also trained the top four contestants.[3]

On 4 November 2013, it was announced that Reshammiya will be acting and producing a movie named The Xposé.[4]

In his debut film as an actor, Aap Kaa Surroor, Reshammiya added a song Tanhaiyaan from Boney Kapoor's proposed film Milenge Milenge.[when?][5] Initially, Reshammiya had composed the song for Kapoor's film but later decided to use it for his own movie. Tips, which held the audio rights of Milenge Milenge, accused Reshammiya of copyright violation, as audio rights for Aap Kaa Surroor – The Real Luv Story were acquired by T-Series.[6] However, Reshammiya defended himself saying that he had made Kapoor listen to the song, but it was not included in Milenge Milenge. He also claimed to have tried to get in touch with Kapoor for seven months, and since there was no progress on the film, he decided to use the song for his own movie.[7]

Awards and nominations[edit]

Reshammiya won the Filmfare Award for Best Male Playback Singer in 2006 for Aashiq Banaya Aapne and also received several awards like Star Screen Award, IIFA Award, Zee Cine Award for this song and became first ever Bollywood singer to receive Filmfare Award for his debut song. He also received several nominations for his Music Direction. He was presented the Phalke Best Supporting Actor Award for Khiladi 786 at 13th Dadasaheb Phalke Academy Awards.[8]

Personal life[edit]

At the age of 21, Reshammiya married Komal and they have a son, named Swayam.[9] Vipin Reshammiya, a veteran music composer, and Madhu Reshammiya are Himesh's parents. On 12 September 2016 it was reported that Himesh and Komal have mutually agreed to separate and file for divorce. “Sometimes in life, mutual respect becomes the most important and giving due respect to our relationship, Komal and I have amicably decided to part ways… There is no problem whatsoever with this decision among us and our family as every member respects it. Yet, Komal is and will always remain a part of our family and I will always be a part of her family,” the 43-year-old actor told Mid-Day.Komal, who also spoke to the daily, she said, “Himesh and I completely respect each other and are jointly going ahead with this decision to part ways, but mutual respect will always be there between us as I am a part of his family and will always be, and the same stands for him towards my family.” [10] According to media reports, Himesh and Komal have been living separately for some months now, and they have applied for divorce in a Bandra court.
