Lucknow: Ghulam Ali will be performing Sunday at the Lucknow Mahotsav,” a government spokesperson said. The official Twitter page of the Uttar Pradesh government shared an image of the ghazal maestro, who is seen posing in an aircraft.
“Shri Ghulam Ali ji being welcomed by Principal Secretary, Mr. Navneet Sehgal at Lucknow today,” the caption says. Ghulam Ali, whose concerts in Mumbai and Pune were called off after Shiv Sena threatened to disrupt his live performances last year, will also attend the music launch of “Ghar Wapsi” on March 5 in Delhi.
Ghulam Ali will be making his acting debut with the Hindi feature film ‘Ghar Wapsi’ for which he has also composed and lent his voice to a patriotic song. The 75-year-old singer made an entry in Indian cinema with his popular song ‘Chupke chupke raat din’ for B.R. Chopra’s ‘Nikaah’ (1982).
