And John sung his heart out! May 31, 2008

This night had many firsts.
First, music composer Salim sang for the first time on stage even as Suleiman lent support with percussions. Second, as BT had reported, John Abraham exercised his vocal chords and gave his live audience much more than what they had hoped for.

And thirdly, even though Nagesh Kukunoor promised the audience that he will not sing, the director was forced to come on stage and hum along with the others, which he did like a good sport. And must say, for first time singers, they all rocked! The Bandra Amphitheatre resounded with music as a number of real-life singers like Shankar Mahadevan, Pakistani singer Shafqat Ali, Mohit Chauhan and Zubeen Garg too lent their talents and made it one beautiful musical night. Host Shailendra Singh dropped in for a while in the beginning but had to leave soon. Also seen having a great time were the pretty Sonal Sehgal, Elahe Heptoolah, Bhushan Kumar, Farida Jalal and Girish Karnad.

Song to the rescue: Shafqat Ali got delayed because of the traffic and Shankar Mahadevan came to his rescue. Shankar was supposed to sing just one song but since Shafqat was taking time, Shankar sang another song and asked Nagesh, “Did it serve the purpose?” Since Shafqat hadn’t yet arrived, Shankar joked, “He must have reached Hill Road now,” and belted out one more number.

In demand: John played to the galleries as he took to the mike and sang pretty confidently amidst loud cheers from the girls in the audience. “Should I come up there?” he asked them and they loudly responded with a “Yes!” And then it was total frenzy as they cheered and sang along with him.
