The only way to stop him is... actually none - he sings even after he's stopped breathing. Besides, who wants him to stop?
Sri Laxmi Narasimha Swamy Seva Samithi is organising a musical nite by Shankar Mahadevan on 18th November, at the Nizam College grounds. Shankar Mahadevan will be performing some of his big hits like Kajra Re (Bunty Aur Babli), Dil Chahta Hai & Koi Kahe Kahta Rahe (Dil Chahta Hai), Urvasi Urvasi (Humse Hai Muqabla), Hindustan (Border), Oh La La (Sapnay) and, not to forget, Koi Jo Mila (Breathless). There will be a few Telugu songs in between too, by noted playback singers D Srinivas and Gopika Poornima.
Shankar Mahadevan has been trained in classical music and started playing the veena at the age of 5. He gave his first solo performance when he was 11 years old. T R Balamani was his initial teacher. He was trained by Tara Devi in North-Indian semi-classical music, and by Srinivas Khale, the legendary Marathi composer.
Mahadevan is a quaified software engineer, and has worked at Oracle Corporation for some time. He is a part of a Swedish band called Mynta, and travels to perform twice a year. Along with Ehsaan Noorani and Loy Mendonsa, he formed a music trio by the name of Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy, scoring the track for some hit movies. He is also a member of the Pure Silk band with Louis Banks, Sivamani and Karl Peters, which recently rocked the Taj Krishna.
Sri Laxmi Narasimha Swamy Seva Samithi was formed for the construction of the Laxmi Narasimha Temple at R P Road. The Samithi has been organising various musical nites to generate funds for this. The temple is nearing completion, with two floors already built.
