One of the most pop­u­lar and ver­sa­tile singers in In­dia to­day — Kailash Kher (right) feels blessed to have come this far in a short stretch of time. The singer, who turned 44 ear­lier this month, is grate­ful to have amassed a huge fan fol­low­ing, in a ca­reer span­ning 12 years.

“If you told me that 12 years ago that I would do more than 1000 con­certs, sing more than 1000 songs, in In­dia and abroad, I would have laughed and said it’s not pos­si­ble,” says the singer, known for num­bers such as Al­lah Ke Bande (2006) and Bam Lahiri (2011). “What­ever I have achieved is unique. You won’t find some­one who has done so much, in this small time frame.”

Not just this, Kailash Kher was also awarded the pres­ti­gious Padma Shri, ear­lier this year— an­other feather in his cap. “It’s not easy to get such a big award. Our coun­try is full of learned peo­ple and to get such an award is a mat­ter of great re­spect. I have lived my life through a lot of hard­ships, sur­prises and mir­a­cles. I con­sider this award as part of those mir­a­cles,” says Kailash.

The singer shares that his packed con­certs in the US have earned him hon­oury cit­i­zen­ship from seven states, as they love to see him per­form. “To have achieved all this in a short span... I never thought that some­thing like this could hap­pen to me in my wildest dreams,” says Kailash.
