Khumaar, a musical event organized in his personal capacity by Bipin Pandit, Chief Operating Officer of The Advertising Club, will be held on April 19 at Savarkar Hall, Shivaji Park, at 5.30 pm. At the event, a book will also be launched containing contributions by CEOs and MDs on their favourite music director and/or lyricist.


Speaking about the book, Mr Pandit said, “Today I have more than 37 articles and some of the formidable names who have written wonderful pieces for my book are Piyush Pandey, Pradeep Guha, Bharat Dhabolkar, Ayaz Memon, M.G.Parameswaran, Nagesh Alai, Madhukar Sabnavis, Apurva Purohit, Paritosh Joshi, Priti Nair, CVL Srinivas, Subhash Kamath, Ashwin Deo, Hemant Kenkre, Ajay Kakkar, Ajay Chandwani, Gokul Krishnamurthy, Narendra Kusnur, Rajiv Vijayakar and Chaitnya Padukone (Phalke award-winner in journalism), among others.”


Billed as a quality show for corporates, Khumaar is backed by a team of professionals 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.


The show will be webcast on
