This time, it’s none other than our favourite lyricist-writer Gulzar, who will be penning a few lines as a tribute to legendary singer Jagjit Singh. The event is planned by the makers of Tum Bin 2 Anubhav Sinha and Bhushan Kumar for the fifth death anniversary of the late singer on 10th October.

The popular ghazal ‘Koi Fariyaad’ by the celebrated Singer will be recreated as ‘Teri Fariyaad’.

The by-invite-only concert event titled ‘Tum Bin Jagjit Singh’ will feature the stalwarts from the music industry and will be aired live. Renowned names like Anup Jalota, Rekha Bhardwaj, Ankit Tewari and Hariharan will be part of the tribute event.

Tum Bin 2 is written and directed by Anubhav Sinha & co-produced by him & Bhushan Kumar of T-Series. This was a movie which brought both of them together after 15 years gap. The movie was shot in the artistic scenery of Scotland. Tum Bin 2 features Aditya Seal, Aashim Gulati and Neha Sharma. As a tribute to the famous singer the film cast will sing for the first time on stage. Anubhav Sinha told IANS- “Yes the tribute will incorporate many facets, including a special video message from various music industry stalwarts who couldn’t be present in person, but in spirit, which will be played live to audiences. I’m also choreographing a special sequel with the star cast of ‘Tum Bin 2’ as my personal gesture within the tribute.”
