Indian Youth Society (IYS), a leading company for quality event planning, staged a concert titled ‘Amitabh Aur Main’, on 23 September at the American International School, Maidan Hawally. The festive holiday spirit of Eid provided a perfect backdrop for the highly anticipated tribute concert held in honor of legendary Bollywood star Amitabh Bachchan.
Hindi music fans packed the auditorium to be regaled by well-known Bollywood playback singer Sudesh Bhosale and his talented troupe as they presented a memorable musical ode to the celebrated actor.
Commenting on the success of Indian Youth Society’ latest project, Shabbir Qamar, President, remarked: “’Amitabh Aur Main’ effectively brought 2016 to a close with a resounding bang, and we are grateful to our sponsors and patrons, as well as the huge numbers of music-lovers — Kuwaiti and expatriate alike — who have made possible the successful delivery of a fantastic line-up of shows in last few years.”
He further added: “Going into 2017, we are looking forward to bringing to Kuwait an exciting calendar of events catering to the diverse musical and entertainment tastes of our target audiences.”

Sudesh Bhosale, hailed at the ‘Voice of Amitabh’, was joined by his co-singer, Amol Yadav, on stage along with female singer Arpita Thakkar. Together, they performed a selection of songs made iconic by Bachchan in his movies. Film dialogues delivered in the actor’s signature style drew rapturous applause from the fans. Adding much pizzazz to the evening were dazzling dance performances combined with the lavish use of audio-visuals and light effects.
