Sunday afternoon my besty calls me and says “get ready in 20 minutes we are going Wembley arena, those that know me know just how spontaneous I can be, so all I said in return was okay where shall I meet you?
We arrived at the arena with no idea what was happening, who we were seeing aside from my bestys brother who was performing the Dhol so apart from it being a Bollywood night I didn’t know anything about it no normally I am not one to go to these things but I do believe that diversification is an important lesson to learn when viewing music because all music has roots from another genre and recognizing this makes you more diversified as an individual.
For those who do not know Pritam is a renowned musician, multi-award winner and has given the Indian Cinema hundreds of unforgettable chartbusters such as King, Kismat Konnection, Cocktail, Barfi!, Race 2, Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani, and many others.
ZEE Bollywood Rockstars also featured Benny Dayal, Harshdeep Kaur, Aditi Singh Sharma, Nikhil George, Sreerama Chandra, Anupam Amod and Soham Chakraborty.
The show started with a warm up and the first song that was sung just set the atmosphere it was the classic ‘Humma’ from the film Bombay, at this point we are already cheering and dancing but it was just a warm up act.
It was then when Pritam came out and got the crowd going with songs from Life in a Metro, his voiced echoed through the arena and you could just feel the Goosebumps. They then proceeded with Aditi Singh Sharma who rocked the stage with songs from Dhoom and got everyone in the party mood. With the dancers from Angels Dance Acadamy who were sizzling and they wore everything from saris to hot pants. They used video projections and a fiery light show completed the celebratory atmosphere.
Harshdeep then came out and sang Damadam MastKalader and I tell you aunties uncles, Pajis, Baa’s, Nani’s and Dada’s were on their feet dancing away! With the atmosphere already buzzing then came my favorite part of the night was Benny Dayal, his voice moved me in ways you cannot imagine. He set the stage on fire along with Aditi and Harshdeep it was possibly the best musical evening I have ever had! Raw talent and the atmosphere was buzzing as you can see in the videos. It was like a Bollywood movie come to life.
After the show we were invited to the after party which was lovely, we ate so yummy food from Sukhdevs Catering, danced to Ritzy entertainment and rubbed shoulders with the above talent
It was a fabulous night and we met some wonderful people, and appropriately I would like to end by just saying……..Balam Pichkari Jo Tune Mujhe Mari, Tho Sidhi Sadhi Chori Sharaabi Hogayi!!!
