Music and film career[edit]

As a singer, he has multiple popular songs such as "Aashiq Banaya Aapne", "Tera Suroor", "Zara Jhoom Jhoom", "Jhalak Dikhlaja", "Andaz Apna Apna", "Shakalaka Boom Boom", "Hookah Bar", "Chalao Na Naino Se" and "Tandoori Nights". Reshammiya's music has a style of composition based on a fusion of Western and Indian classical music, Western and Indian Rock music accompanied by techno beats. He started his acting career with his debut film, Aap Kaa Surroor.[3]

Reshammiya was the first Indian singer to perform at the Wembley Arena and the Heineken music hall in Amsterdam.[4]

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[citation needed]. He was the winning mentor of the show in 2007. In 2009, Vaishali Mhade, a female contestant from his Jai Mata Di Let's 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.[5]

On 4 November 2013, it was announced that Reshammiya will be acting and producing a movie named The Xposé.[6]

In his debut film as an actor, Aap Kaa Surroor, Reshammiya added a song Tanhaiyyan from Boney Kapoor's proposed film Milenge Milenge.[when?][7] 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.[8] 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.[9]
