Music and film career[edit]

As a singer, he churned out songs like "Aashiq Banaya Aapne", "Tera Suroor", "Mujhko Yaad Sataye Teri", "Zara Jhoom Jhoom", "Jhalak Dikhlaja", "Shakalaka Boom Boom", "Hookah Bar", "Chalao Na Naina Se", which were very 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 2014; [dated info] 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, Himesh 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 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.

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

Alleged copyright violation[edit]

In his debut film as an actor, Aap Kaa Surroor, Himesh Reshammiya added a song Tanhaiyaan from Boney Kapoor's proposed film Milenge Milenge.[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]
