Till date, she has sung many hit songs in Bol­ly­wood such as ‘Katiya ka­roon’ (Rock­sta

2011), ‘Nachde ne saare’ (Baar Baar Dekho; 2016) and ‘Dil­baro’ (Raazi), among oth­ers. Bu Harshdeep Kaur is set to have a com­pletely new ex­pe­ri­ence now: she wil open Bryan Adams’ live shows in Mum­bai (Oc­to­ber 12) and Delhi (Oc­to­ber 14). “I’ve grown up lis­ten­ing to the leg­endary singer (Bryan) since my school days and I’m a huge fan of his voice. So, it’s a huge hon­our for me to share the same stage with him. I’m re­ally happy,” says Harshdeep, whose per­for­mance in Mum­bai, as well as Delhi, is likely to be “about 45-minute long.” The singer’s per­for­mance will in­clude many hit num­bers in­clud­ing ‘Kabira’ (Yeh Jawaani Hai Dee­wani; 2013) ‘Channa mereya’ (Ae Dil Hai Mushkil; 2016), ‘Zaal­ima’ (Raees; 2017), ‘Dua’ (Shang­hai; 2012), and ‘Jug­niji’ (Cock­tail; 2012). “I’ll be singing some of my own songs and some other pop­u­lar num­bers as well. I’m re­ally look­ing for­ward to it,” she in­forms.

Ask her how ex­cited she is about her new ex­pe­ri­ence, and she says with a smile, “I’m quite ex­cited. For the past few days, I’ve been pre­par­ing a spe­cial set with my band for this event. It also feels great to be rep­re­sent­ing my coun­try’s mu­sic on such a big stage with an in­ter­na­tional artiste.”

The young singer goes on to ad­mit that she has many child­hood me­mories of lis­ten­ing to Bryan’s songs. “I clearly re­mem­ber learn­ing the song, ‘Every­thing I do’ and per­form­ing at my school an­nual fest. Ev­ery­one had loved it (smiles),” she says. The Cana­dian singer­song­writer is in In­dia for a mu­si­cal tour that kicked off in Ahmed­abad and was fol­lowed by Hy­der­abad. His Mum­bai gig will take place ahead of his per­for­mances in Ben­galuru (Oc­to­ber 13) and Delhi.
