Purchase tickets to see Kumar Sanu at www.ticketmaster.com or Box Office at 201.227.1030.

Kumar Sanu comes to bergenPAC live in concert with his group of musicians in his only NJ appearance. Kumar Sanu is one of the most popular playback singers of Bollywood. He holds the Guinness Book world record for recording the maximum number of songs in a day at 28 songs. He is famous in Bollywood as a melody singer.

Kumar Sanu was born in Kolkata. Early in his career, it was suggested that he change his name from Kedar Bhattacharya to Kumar Sanu because of the prevalent caste-region-based favoritism in Bollywood and to give him wider appeal outside of a strictly Bengali audience. He has enthralled film audiences with his voice for decades and has recorded more than 17,000 songs. He was honored as the Artist of the Decade at the International Indian Film Academy (IIFA) Awards. He won the Filmfare Best Male Playback Award for 5 consecutive years. In 2009, the Government of India awarded him Padma Shri, India's fourth highest civilian honor, in recognition of his achievements.

Sanu is often credited with having one of the best voices among playback singers in India. During his career, has sung with numerous successful composers and directors like Jagjit Singh, KR.D. Burman, Nadeem-Sharavan, Anu Mallik, Jatin-Lalit, Ismail Darbar, Laxmikant Pyaretal, Naushad, Kalyanji Anandji, Ravindra Jain, Hridayanath Mangeshkar, Pt.R K Razdan, Usha Khanna and more!
