"I was sad to see my brother leave the band. Along with my late brother Kuly, he was one of the founders of the group," says Surj. While Kuly was the musical leader, and Manj his musical foil, Surj's influence on the musical direction of the group was huge. Surj was also responsible for ­handling the group's ­business affairs which saw the band soar to Bollywood success with hits such as Singh Is King with Snoop Dogg, Kambakkht Ishq, Aloo Chaat, Paisa Paisa and Sadi Gali from Tanu Weds Manu to name but a few. Formed over a decade ago, the band changed the perception of UK-Asian music.
