Singer Jaz Dhami reveals that he joined Bollywood after 8 years because he wasn’t sure about his music

Popular singer Jaswinder Singh Dhami aka Jaz Dhami (right) is probably one of the rare Punjabi musicians who have undergone training in Indian classical music. The 30-year-old has been in the industry since 2008 and Jaz took his time to start a career in Bollywood, when he made his debut with Hum Ne Pee Rakhi Hai (Sanam Re; 2016).

“I always saw Bollywood as a natural progression in my career and that’s why I waited to start my career here. When I started off as a singer, I was from a classical background. So my music was not really commercial like Bollywood music,” he says.

Jaz says he wants to sing songs of every kind.

However, after he found mainstream success with the single High Heels (2012) along with singer-musician Yo Yo Honey Singh, things changed for the singer who now stays in the UK. “After High Heels, I got a bit more confident with my music. After that I knew what kind of music people will like and will do well commercially. And a few years later, you saw me singing Bollywood songs,” he says.

Jaz says he wants to sing songs of every kind. “I have always maintained that I want to do different type of songs. I want to be challenged as an artist and try different genres. I just don’t want people to say that I can just sing dance numbers, or that I can sing only romantic songs. I want them to know I can sing any genre,” he signs off.
