Khumaar, a musical event organized in his personal capacity by Bipin Pandit, Chief Operating Officer of The Advertising Club, will be held in the first week of February 2013.

 

Billed as a quality show for corporates, Khumaar is backed by a team of 18 pprofessionals who meticulously select and present songs and music that aim to stay as close to the original as possible. So far the shows that have been held have attracted well-known names such as Suresh Wadkar and Roopkumar Rathod, and have been well received by audiences which have seen participation from the advertising, media and marketing fraternity.

 

The thought of starting Khumaar came to Mr Pandit following his career over 20 years as a professional Hindi compere, combined with his command over Urdu and skill in mimicry. Khumaar presents old Hindi musical hits from great films of yesteryear, with ghazals, Sufi songs and a qawwali interspersed for variety. A selected few new songs are also presented.

 

Khumaar also serves a social purpose by supporting the activities of an NGO, Light of Life Trust, and the CPAA (Cancer Patients Aid Association). The Light of Life Trust does a variety of good work that includes reinstating dropout girls to school, providing help to people with terminal illnesses, and free medical attention.

 

At February’s Khumaar, the first half will be themed around Romance, and will salute three romantic superstars – Dev Anand, Shammi Kapoor and Rajesh Khanna, as also the legendary Yash Chopra. The show will also pay homage to actor Joy Mukherjee with some great Rafi numbers. The show will be webcast live on www.bipinpandit.com.
