Born in the enchanting city of Amritsar, Punjab, Sukhwinder Singh has carved an indelible mark in the world of music with his soul-stirring melodies and enchanting voice.

A Glimpse into Sukhwinder Singh's Life

Sukhwinder Singh's journey in the realm of music began with humble aspirations and boundless talent. His early foray into playback singing commenced with a few lines in the movie "Karma."

Yet, it was his collaboration with the musical genius, A.R. Rahman, that truly set the stage for his prolific career. The partnership between Sukhwinder Singh and A.R. Rahman produced a plethora of chart-topping hits that enthralled audiences worldwide. Some of their iconic collaborations include "Chaiyya Chaiyya" from the film "Dil Se," "Taal Se Taal Mila," and "Nahin Samne" from "Taal," and the soul-stirring "Jai Ho" from the Oscar-winning film "Slumdog Millionaire."

"Chaiyya Chaiyya," set against the backdrop of a moving train, became an instant sensation and earned Sukhwinder Singh the prestigious Best Male Playback Award at the 1999 Filmfare Awards. This song, penned by the legendary Gulzar and performed as a duet with Sapna Awasthi, remains an enduring favorite among music enthusiasts.

Their musical partnership continued to flourish with songs like "Ruth Aa Gayee Re" and "Yeh Jo Zindagi Hain" from "Earth," "Chinnamma Chilakkamma" from "Meenaxi," and "Thok De Killi" from "Raavan."
