Shahid Mallya – Kavita Raam – Anurag Maurya renders the bhajans
It is said that music is a way to reach God. The journey to the Holy Shrine of Mata Vaishno Devi is an enthralling voyage. With “Mata Di’s” blessings, Jammu based Surinder Kumar Gupta who wanted to culminate this holy pilgrimage and also to mark the beginning of his entertainment odyssey with a devotional album on “Mata Vaishno Devi” has launched a music album.
On Monday, 13th June 2022, music director Prakash Nar (a veteran and doyen for providing background score and jingles in all the languages since the last three decades) recorded two songs at Euphony Studio at Andheri (West) in Mumbai.
The spiritual songs were rendered by eminent singers Shahid Mallya, Kavita Raam and Anurag Maurya. The lyrics have been penned by Moti Sultanpuri and Tamanna Arora.
Speaking on the occasion producer Surinder Kumar Gupta says, “I am a resident from Jammu where I am a landlord as well as run a public school. I have been regularly commuting to Mumbai since the last 30 years. Here the glitter and glamour of the entertainment industry lured me too. I have been gearing up to embark on with something pious. Post pandemic I took a step forward and with the blessings of Vaishno Mata ji I launched my concern – Satyashanti Production and my debut venture with a devotional album and have tentatively titled it as Vaishno Mata Ke Bhajan”.
Gupta further adds, “We have recorded two bhajans. One is a solo in the male voice of Shahid Mallya and the other a duet in the voices of Kavita Raam and Anurag Maurya. We will soon add 3 or 4 more bhajans and have a complete bouquet which the listeners too will revere bhakti through music. We will also film these bhajans at the exotic locales of Jammu and Mumbai and release it in the coming 2/3 months.”
The poems have a variety and are a tribute to ‘Suhagans’ states lyricist Moti Sultanpuri. He further shares, “O Meri Maang Sada…..” is a duet sung by Kavita Raam and Anurag Maurya.
