Kumar Sanu, Alka Yagnika, and Udit Narayan the three legendary Bollywood singers, united for the first time as they toured different cities of United cities. Their show named as Throwback 90s comprised of their super hit melodious songs in the 90’s era when the trio dominated the Bollywood music for over a decade. They performed in Atlanta at the Coco-Cola Roxy arena on November 10, 2019. The show was a sold-out show with hundreds of crowds cheering and dancing with the music.
 



Atlanta has hosted many Bollywood shows in recent years. But this was special. With the three legends performing together, the night was dazzled with musical bliss. It was an evening of 3 hours of continuous music, taking us back to the 90s. All instruments and vocals were performed live on stage. The full orchestra brought all the sounds and rhythms alive.

The event started with Kumar Sanu rendering his evergreen romantic hit numbers from the movies Ashiquie, Saajan, Baazigaar, Pardes, Barsaat, and more. Then Alka Yagnik sang her favorite songs, followed by Udit Narayan. Although it has been over three decades, Udit still has kept the youthful exuberance in his voice. When Udit sang Papa Kehte Hai- the stage was on fire. His Papa Kehte Hia song touched a nerve, and the audience was hysterical with delight. The music made all nostalgic about their school and college days.


The show started around 7 PM and went on till 10 PM. The crowd was on their feet with this grand show. They continuously cheered at the performances. After the end of the program, the singers met with the sponsors and special guests. Overall, the event was sold out and houseful. The concert attended by hundreds of music lovers from Georgia, Alabama, and Tennessee.

The organizers for the event are Bhavana Anand from Anand Entertainment, Anil Damani from the 27th Investments, Prosperous Entertainment, Ricky Walia from the Walia Hospitality, Rishi Bector and Sky Properties.


Anand Entertainment, led by Bhavana Anand, has become the leading local promoter for Indian shows in Atlanta. Bhavana Anand, the founder of Anand Entertainment, worked tirelessly over the last three months to bring this show to Atlanta. She said that the great city of Atlanta deserves the greatest shows, and Anand entertainment is committed to delivering the very best to Atlanta. Throwback 90’s is the biggest event for Anand Entertainment as they were also the national promoter and managed the show in different cities of US and Canada. Bhavana Anand, in the end, thanked the audience for their support and blessings and promised for more exciting events coming up in 2020!


The social media was buzz after the successful show. Sagnika Mukherjee Paul said – “Thanks Anand Entertainment for bringing such a great show. Anand Entertainment is the best entertainment company in Atlanta that has revolutionized the way for Indian Bollywood events. Congrats for becoming the leading national promoter in the United States. We all will be eagerly waiting for more blockbuster events in 2020.” Prabha Pabs Raghava wrote “OUTSTANDING musical show and outstanding Anand Entertainment under the vision of Bhavs! All well-conducted events! We await 2020 releases”.


Of all the shows I have been to in recent years, this show was the most special. We cannot go back to the past, but with music, the cherished memories come back to live again, and we can relive the yesterday even if fleetingly. I hope the popularity and success of the show inspire the organizers to bring the stars back again next year so that we can again relive the golden music.
