Talking about the concert, Lalit says, “I’m really looking forward to this concert and performing with some of my favourite singers from the industry. This concert is a celebration of my music over the years. We will perform songs from movies like Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikandar, Sarfarosh, Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge, Mohabbatein, Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham, Kuch Kuch Hota Hai among others. We will be performing songs from these movies with original orchestra. It is a very unique show and I will be conducting it. I did the same concert in 2020 before Covid and I got massive appreciation and love for it. People have loved all these songs over the years and they still continue to listen to them. All these are award-winning songs that became extremely popular.”
Lalit Pandit has composed the highest-selling Bollywood soundtrack of the year on three occasions in a decade – Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge (1995), Kuch Kuch Hota Hai (1998), and Mohabbatein (2000). He revolutionized the Indian music industry when he was fairly young. His flair in music was greatly the reason that he marked his debut when he was in college.
His first compositions “Bin Tere Sanam” from Yaara Dildara (1991) and “Pehla Nasha” from Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikandar (1992) continue to have a cult following even more than two decades after the release of the movies.
