It was really a day of many firsts. Legendary cricketer/allrounder Kapil Dev released Times Music album of Anup Jalota and Raavi, written by Haider Najmi. Everybody knows Anup Jalota as the Bhajan Samrat and Raavi doesn't want to just remain the wife of Kiran More, famous ex-cricketer/wicket keeper of Team India. I liked a few songs Anupji and Raavi sang at the event and am sure Raavi will get a recognition with this album, but here we are talking about this really unique event with many firsts. I have personally never seen so many singers/ghazal singers at one place. Jagjit Singh & Chitra Singh, Bhupinder, Talat Aziz, Suresh Wadkar, Pankaj Udhas, Shaan, Bali Brahmbhatt and Madhushree were all present at the event. Apart from Kapil Dev, there were also other famous ex cricketers viz. Balwinder Singh Sandhu, Ajit Wadekar, Vinod Kambli, Karsan Ghavri, among others. Again, I have never seen so many cricketers in any Bollywood event. Ajitpal Mangat, whose movie Victory released today was also present at the event, minus Harman Baweja and Harbhajan Singh who had come for the music release function of Victory. However, it was the best day in my life because I got to spend whole two hours in close company of living legends Khayyam Sahab and Purshottamdasji Jalota who were discussing a wide rane of topics.

Check this blog for a few pics from the event shortly.
