Himesh Reshammiya is the son of veteran Gujarati music director Vipin Reshammiya ji. At the age of 16 and before he went into music direction, Himeshji produced television serials for Zee TV which included serials such as ‘Andaz’ and ‘Amar Prem’. Himeshji studied at Hill Grange School in Peddar Road, Mumbai where he met his friend Prashant Chadha. Prashant was responsible for Himeshji’s look in 2005 and for directing all of Himeshji’s music videos from his private album ‘Aap Kaa Surroor’ as well as the promotional videos for the movies ‘Aashiq Banaya Aapne’, ‘Aksar’, ‘Tom, Dick & Harry’, and ‘Humko Deewana Kar Gaye’.
Himeshji’s first big break in the world of Bollywood music, came through his good friend Salman Khan. Salman gave Himeshji the chance to be a music director for the movie ‘Bandhan’ along with composer Anand Raj Anand. After the success of the album, Salman and Himeshji have shared many hit albums together, such as ‘Pyar Kiya to Darna Kya’, ‘Ye Hai Jalwa’, ‘Dulhan Hum Le Jayenge’, ‘Tere Naam’ and more recently the Rajshri super hit ‘Prem Ratan Dhan Payo’.
Himeshji’s music has its own unique style, based on a fusion of Western and Indian classical genres with catchy techno beats. With a series of popular film scores and a string of 36 hits, he is considered to be one of the top music directors in Indian cinema today. His music is associated with the youthful and trendsetting culture that has recently been pervasive in India, particularly due to the popularity of the remixes of his songs.
Himeshji entered the next phase of his career as an actor, on 29th June 2007 with the release of his first film ‘Aap Kaa Surroor the moviee: The Real Luv Story’. The film released on his mother’s (Mrs Madhu Reshammiya) birthday, and has done tremendous success by breaking all box office records. Himeshji’s next films were ‘Karzzzz the Vengence is back’, ‘Radio – Love on Air’ and ‘Kajraare’.
