Like the last time when we interviewed Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy, this time also Honhaar Goonda was the driving force behind the decision to interview Kailash Kher. And like last time, Sourav Bhuyan followed up for getting an appointment.
Sourav and I met up with Kailash Kher for an interview at his studio at the Kailasa Studios in Mumbai. It was a free wheeling interview in which Kailash shared his experiences about everything from his struggle days to the formation of the band Kailasa to his south Indian movie experience to their latest soundtrack Dasvidaniya.
A small intro about the Kailasa band for those who came in late – Kailasa is a group whose main members are Kailash Kher, Naresh Kamath and Paresh Kamath. Naresh & Paresh are brothers. The music is composed by the trioka and the lyrics are written by Kailash Kher. They have come out with two albums so far – Kailasa & Kailasa Jhoomo Re. They are currently working on their third album. They have also composed music for movies as well, with Dasvidaniya being their latest release.
