This year Bipin R Pandit’s musical event ‘Khumaar’ was returning after a gap of two years hence it had generated lot of interest amongst the music lovers and the staunch ‘Khumaar’ fans and followers.
The St. Andrew’s Auditorium with a capacity of 850 was packed to capacity.
The show has presence of seniors as well as the young brigade in the audience, hence the songs chosen were a fine blend of old and new hit numbers. There was attendance at the event from places like Bengaluru, Chennai, Indore, Pune, Nasik and Canada. There was inclusion of three singers from Pune, Hyderabad and Malegaon.
Pandit, the Founder of Khumaar, said, “Khumaar has truly established itself as a pan-India brand. It is a professional show, and the musicians and singers do their bit for a living. Singers like Mona Prabhugaonkar, Sarvesh Mishra, Rajeshwar Karmakonda, Raagini Kavathekar and Chandrashekhar Mahamuni are Khumaar regulars and professionals who have made a name for themselves. Two things have given me immense satisfaction, one is honouring Covid Heroes who did outstanding job during Covid on stage that included Doctors, Nurses, Police Inspector, Police Head Constable and Constable, BMC employees and a Ward boy. Secondly there were three new singers launched under my popular segment Khumaar ki Khoj – Satyendra Tripathi-Voice of Udit Narayan, Zeeshan Shaikh-Voice of Rafi Saab and Sonu Nigam and Sushil Mungekar-Voice of S P Balasubrahmanyam. At the moment I am evaluating doing shows at Kolhapur and Pune.”
