    i still remember very well about 8 years back when i was kid , this man shahnawaz along with his orchestra came to perform in our town, he sung so well the song of border movie “sandeshe aate hai”n many other. that time i wonder why he is not among the top singers like sonu , udit n all, i thought it was the matter of fate, but no i was wrong the hard work pays at the end , and now he is on path of success.

    Shahnawaz known as BUNTY among all the musicians who played during his tenure in UDAIPUR as an Artist of BLUE STAR ORCHESTRA.

    This boy had worked very hard n May ALLAH Bless him what ever he wishes because I have seen him Playing in Orchestra for Receptions, Birth Day Parties and other occasions late nights. He was the only Key Board player who use to sing.

    I remember people use to laugh and make fun of him in early days when he tried to copy SONU NIGAM’s Songs. But See the STAR today. …….. welllllllllllllllll lets pray for him.
