Kamaal Khan Biography (Wikipedia)

Kamaal Khan (born 12 March 1972 in Highgate, North London) is a British Bollyood/Hindi pop, Singer, Actor, Songwriter and Music Producer. He is currently residing in Zurich, Switzerland. In 1995 he wrote and produced his debut single "O Oh Jaane Jaana" in London. The song released in 1996 becoming a UK hit achieving platinum status. The song released worldwide in 1998 (together with his debut solo album) and simultaneously featured in the Bollywood blockbuster Pyaar Kiya To Darna Kya starring Salman Khan and Kajol. The soundtrack went on to sell over 10 million copies and the huge success of the movie has widely been attributed by film pundits to the popularity of Kamaal's debut song. As a result of his successful debut single, Kamaal was immediately signed by record label HMV in December 1997.

In 1999 Kamaal Khan won the "R.D.Burman" Filmfare Award for the "Most Promising Upcoming Talent" becoming the first UK born winner of the coveted Filmfare Award since its introduction in 1954. He is also a winner/nominee of numerous MTV, Filmfare, ZEE and Channel [V] awards for both singing and acting. He went on to achieve further success with his solo albums O Oh Jaane Jana, Suno To Deewana Dil and "Kal Raat". MTV Award-winning director Shivraj Santhakumar collaborated with Kamaal to shoot a music video for Kal Raat in Rome. The music video caught the eye of Bollywood director Rahul Rawail and landed Kamaal his debut acting role.
