Singer Kailash Kher (right), who turns 44 to­day, has some­thing special planned on his birth­day for his fans. The Meerut-born singer will re­lease the video of his song about Lord Shiva, Bhole Chale.

“I de­lib­er­ately waited for a year to shoot the video. There were a few things that I wanted to use in the vis­ual medium to make it look per­fect. For ex­am­ple, when we had re­leased the au­dio, I had short hair, and I wanted them to grow longer, so that we can use that look in the video,” he says. Last year, the au­dio of the song was re­leased on his birth­day.

He adds that some of the se­quences in the video needed to be shot dur­ing a par­tic­u­lar time, place and event. “The video has a few shots from the Kumbh Mela. We wanted to in­clude the hath yo­gis, and they are only present at big re­li­gious gath­er­ings. So we had to wait,” adds Kailash. A be­liever of Lord Shiva, Kailash is hop­ing that the song will con­nect the youth with In­dian tra­di­tions. “When we re­leased the song Babam Bam in 2007, peo­ple were sur­prised that the song was be­ing played at night­clubs. Young­sters loved that song. I wish to do the same with this [new video] as well, and want them to un­der­stand the val­ues, and the spir­i­tu­al­ity as­so­ci­ated with Lord Shiva,” shares the singer.

Asked about his plans for the day, Kailash says that he might record a song for mu­sic com­poser Devi Sri Prasad. “I haven’t de­cided on that as yet, but [prob­a­bly] it will be a work­ing birth­day for me,” he adds.
