Tri-city at Cannes! That’s truly International!

Mohali just got an international acclaim and that too at Cannes! Difficult to believe – isn’t it?

Mohali had a chance to showcase its talent at Cannes Film Festival in France. Rahul Lakhanpal, who is based in the US since 2006, was chosen by the organizers of the festival to give a musical tribute to the late Sridevi at Cannes Film Festival - 2018 on May 16. Rahul is a young architectural engineer turned singer from Mohali. This is what Rahul had to say about this opportunity: “There is an Indian film association that got in touch with me through the record label I work with in California. The awards event at Cannes on May 16 was honouring the widow of an American millionaire, Reginald F Lewis, and also Sridevi. So, they wanted me to sing two songs as a tribute to the Indian legend.”

Rahul chose two songs to dedicate to the legend – ‘Surmayi Akhiyon Mein’ and ‘Aye zindagi Galey Laga Le’ from Sridevi’s iconic film, Sadma. “I also gave a brief speech on Sridevi. The world knows her as superstar from India and to pay a tribute to her was one of the glories of my life.”

Raul was born in Jagraon, brought up in Ludhiana and came to Chandigarh (Mohali) in 2000. He went to GNDU for B.Arch., and moved to the US in 2006 for Masters in Architecture. He is trained in classical music since the early age of 11 and has performed on DD too. In the US, he created a band called ‘Dhwani’ in 2008. In the same year he participated in the US edition of Sa Re Ga Ma Pa, and was at the 6th position.

Rahul also sang a song titled ‘Chicago Land’ in a Hollywood film called ‘The Tiger Hunter’ – a 2017 release. Rahul also made his own music and his first track, Ik Chehra, a Punjabi song that belonged to the Sufi, rock genre. He has also teamed up with ‘Bohemia’ – another band in California.
