Himesh Reshammiya is born on 23rd July 1973 and is the son of Veteran Gujarati music director Vipinji Reshammiya.


Himesh studied at Hill Grange School in Peddar Road where he met  his best friend Prashant Chadha. Prashant is responsible for Himesh’s  new look and for directing all of Himesh’s music videos from his  private album “Aap Kaa Surroor” as well as promotional videos for the  movies “Aashiq Banaya Aapne", “Aksar” & “Tom, Dick & Harry".


At just 16 years old and before Himesh went into music direction,  he produced television serials for Zee TV which included serials such  as “Andaz” & “Amar Prem".


The first big break came when Himesh approached Salman Khan (who  had just made it big with the hit movie “Maine Pyar Kiya") who gave  Himesh the chance to be a music director for the movie “Bandhan” along  with the composer Anand Raj Anand.


He became good friends with Salman Khan, a famous Bollywood actor  who starred in the movie, and composed songs for some subsequent movies  in which Salman starred. Since then, Himesh & Salman have had a  string of hits for movies such as “Pyar Kiya to Darna kya", “Ye Hai  Jalwa", “Dulhan Hum Le Jayenge” and the more recent mega blockbuster  movie “Tere Naam".


From this experience, Reshammiya was able to develop his own unique  style of composition, based on pop music and catchy techno beats. He  also places a particular emphasis on Indian melodic hooks to his songs.  His most popular composition can be said to be Tere Naam.


With a series of popular film scores, he is considered to be one of  the top music directors in Indian cinema today, along with A. R. Rahman  and poets-and-dancers/anu-malik" href="/great-musicians-dancers/anu-malik" >Anu Malik. His music is associated with the youthful and  trendsetting culture that has recently been pervasive in India,  particularly due to the popularity of the remixes of his songs.
