Be it Navratri, movie Ramleela, Pujya Shri Morari Bapu events or Gazals, his voice touches soul – A Story of Osman Mir

Osman Mir

An injury while playing cricket introduced him to Tabla and a natural flair of musical notes led him to become a singer… Osman Mir is known for his ‘Desi’ style singing and has come a long way with many struggles that were defeated by his simplicity and positive attitude. Renowned filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali chose him for the Ramleela superhit song ‘Mann Mor Bani Thangat Kare’ and how! Bhansali said he would drop the song from the film if Osman Mir doesn’t agree to sing it!
