Is Anand Raj Anand the new Himesh?
If you have been listening to the new songs these days you will notice that Anand Raj Anand is singing quite a few of them. He was requested by Pritam to sing the song Billo Raani from Goal. He has done a music videoHimesh Reshammiya style in the Bhula Diya song from Dus Kahaniyaan. And he also sang 2 songs in Welcome along with composing them.
Anand Raj Anand has been in the industry for quite a while but has never received any recognition despite making good tunes throughout his career. So will this be a turning point for him? Will he be the new super star musician?
We don’t think so!
As you can see in the Bhula Diya video, it may be a very nice song but ARA just doesn’t have the personality like Himesh does. In the film Aggar the composer Mithoon also tried to make a Himesh style video but it did not gain popularity. Actually Mithoon looked quite funny with his ‘trying to be cool’ sunglasses.
ARA is a good composer and his voice is more tolerable to many people than Himesh’s voice. But the uniqueness of Himesh’s voice is exactly what makes his fans love him. He has started a new trend of music videos which other composers are trying to follow but failing.
At the end of the day there can and will be only one rock star….and we all know who he is.
Jai Himesh Bhai!
