 Saregama India Ltd., India’s flagship Music and Entertainment Company, launches yet another prestigious album 

AKSAR …  Mumbai, 25th April’2012:  Saregama India Ltd., India’s flagship Music and Entertainment Company, launched yet another prestigious album 

AKSAR  …. . The album was launched in,  The Hilton, Andheri, Mumbai.  The evening started with a  scintillating  Live Performance by Bhupinder and Mitali Singh, followed by the  launch of the album by Madhuri Dixit Nene, the evening was attended by Anup Jalota, Talat Aziz,  Hariharan, Salim Aarif to name a few.



Once in a while, there comes an album that defines musical genius, honest and a born classic. “AKSAR …” is that album.


A brand new recording, wherein Gulzar Saab has wielded his pen yet again, for AKSAR … providing beautiful lyrics for all the songs. The music has been arranged by none other than Uttam Singh, of Dil Toh Pagal Hai fame, and he strikes a beautiful balance between enchanting music and poignant lyrics.


The album features the unparalleled voices of India’s most multi talented musician, Bhupinder Singh and his equally gifted wife Mitali Singh! Best known for singing immortal jewels like Beeti Na Bitai Raina, Naam Gum Jayega and Ek Akela Iss Shehar Mein, Bhupi, as he is popularly known, and Mitali, are back with AKSAR … to gift us pure musical pleasure.


AKSAR … is the outcome of some of the finest poetry of Gulzar Saab.    It consists of different moods of the poet, different phases of thoughts and experiencing different behaviours of life and times.  Each song, be it a Ghazal or a Nazm, is a complete story within itself..




As stated by Adarsh Gupta, Business Head, Saregama India Ltd., “An album  like this, as the name suggests, is rare.   A rare combination of Gulzar Saab’s memorable lyrics, sung by the magical Ghazal Duo Bhupinder and Mitali Singh.  The beautiful renditions in the album  makes AKSAR …a  connoisseurs  delight”


“Kahin To Gard Udey, Ya Kahin Ghubar Dikhey ” is complete picture of   total loneliness described beautifully by Gulzar Saab.



Mitali, when she sings “ Kal Ki Raat ” she brings distant past as close as last night….

“Mere  Hathon  Pairon Mein –  Tanhaiyan  Chalti  Rehti  Hain”

“Kyon  Ghareebon  Se  Khelti  Hai  Raat”

“Os  Gira  Karti  Hai  Jaise,  Phoolon  Ki  Garmayish  Par

Kal  Ki Raat  Giri  Thi  Shabnam ”

“Raat  Ko Jane  Kya Hoota Hai,  Hasne  Lagti  Hai ”

“Khushboo  Jaise  Log  Miley  Afsane  Mein ”



All the songs in the album have been finely composed by Bhupinder Singh. The only duet “ Neeli  Neeli Ankhiyon Se Jhanke Re Samandar Jhankey ”in the album happened when Amandeep, son of Bhupinder Singh  was  composing  &  playing the   beautiful  rhythm on  his Guitar, which  inspired  Bhupinder to compose it that very moment. Gulzar  heard it and wrote  – “ Neeli   Neeli  Ankhiyon  Se  Jhanke  Re Samandar Jhankey Lehron Ke  Paon  Pe  Aaye  Aur  Jaaye  Geeli  Geeli  Ret  Pe  Kya  Likh  Jaaye  Kaisi Lakreen  Aanken  Aanken” – the most beautiful romantic duet song  in this album.


“Aisi  Maddham Si Bolti Hai  Raat”  is composed in semi classical style to take you in a different world altogether.



Last Ghazal is real landmark poetry from Gulzar Saab. “Hawaas Ka Jahaan Saath Le Gaya, Wo Sarey Badban  Saath Le Gaya ” composed  on a very simple tune.


A combined effort by Gulzar , Bhupinder  and Mitali “AKSAR .. ” to be shared with you.
