Riddle

What does Himesh Reshamiya have that Shankar Mahadevan doesn't?

Clue: No, it has nothing to do with natural flowing hair.

More Clue: Ustaad Rahat Fateh Ali Khan or KK doesn't have it; Kailash Kher only has half of it; Sukhwinder has one too, and Shaan has one and half of it.

Answer: It's the Filmfare award for male playback singing.

Trivia:
  • Legends Kishore Kumar and Md.Rafi leads the male singers with the highest number of Filmfare awards with eight and six awards respectively.
  • Kumar Sanu has won the Filmfare award a record five consecutive times from 1991 to 1995.
  • Kailash Kher's only Filmfare award shared with Shaan is for singing the words "Subhan Allah" 16 times in the song Chand Sifarish (Fanaa). Subhan Allah!

Can this be true????

For which song did Himesh win this Filmfare Award?

The one thing that Shankar has and Himesh doesn't is......TALENT my friend..koi shaque?

Just to add...Kumar Shanu was all set to win it for the 6th time for Tujhey Dekha To...from DDLJ and he refused to be nominated (what an ass)...so Udit Narayan bagged it for "Mehndi Laga Ke Rakhna". I think Shanu never got a nomination after that.

Sholay got just one for Best Editing (not kidding).
For Deewar, Shashi Kapoor won the Best Supporting Actor (I think Bachchan's role was edited for the Jury)

Stopped watching it when Salman Khan accepted the Best Supporting Actor award for KKHH with Bhiku Mhatrey applauding in the crowd.

abe... HR should get more !!!

that will ensure he gets to the stage more often and can be shot dead :D

but lets face it, some of his music can really make you dance ( not comparing at all with the other brilliant guys out there)

Log to Leh Ladakh mein bhi sirf or sirf HR sunte hain :D ab wo baat aur ke kuch aur nahin thaa sun-ne ke liye :D

@Butterfly
Himesh won for "Aashiq Banaya Aapne" :)

@Sanjit
Koi shak nehi :)
Good info. Why don't you write bollywood trivia and post it. If you don't want to do it.. send it to me, I will post it here.

@Om
Haan I remember that... miles and miles (and a few more miles) of empty terrain, a Scorpio, five guys, and Himesh ninging (that's Nasal sINGING). Nothing is perfect... Chaand mein bhi daag hai :)

burf said...

but i have heard that he has composed music for some very old movie that was liked by a lot very much, can't remember which though

B. O'Hemian said...

@Burf
Are you talking about "Karzz"? Honestly, I don't really have anything against his music direction. It's his ninging that I can't stand.

deep said...

HR has a good talent in composing music....dont forget he did some really good numbers for pyar kiya to darna kya and few other movies before he got the idea of singing himelf.......and his music still has lot of rythm....i wish he wud let others sing though.....

5 guys and HR in leh.....kya memories thi :)

i am surprised kk hasnt won it yet...

Rohit Talwar said...

KK has none?! Strange. But Kailash Kher's fact IS amusing! Wah. One could expect this only from Filmfare.

@Deeps
Himesh composed just one track for Pyar Kiya To Darna Kya, isn't it? But I agree, he is a good composer, if he decides not to sing himself.

@RT
That's right my friend, that's right.

I am said...

he he .....

but for sure he has started a new trend (or class) of 'Nasal Singing Singer's'. Infact that's how competitors from his house in TVS Sa Re Ga Ma are atleast introduced!!
