He did his schooling at Hill Grange School in Peddar Road area, Mumbai. Himesh started his career with a production house which aired quite a few TV soaps on DoordarshanAhmedabad and Zee TV at the age of mere 16.
    Himesh Reshammiya avoided speaking about his personal life in media until July 2007, when in the talk show "Koffee with Karan", he revealed that he is married to Komal, and they have a 10 year old son named Swayam.[4]
    In October 2006, Reshammiya became the first Indian to perform at the Wembley Stadium in London.[5]


    Himesh Reshammiya scored the music and made his acting debut in Aap Ka Suroor - The Real Love Story, which released on June 29, 2007 and had an 80% box office opening. The film proved to be a hit. Now Himesh Reshammiya is coming with his new movie Karzzzz which is remake to a superhit movie Karz (1980 film). Himesh Reshammiya is going to act with bollywood actor Urmila Matondkar. The movie will release in October 2008.

    Criticism and controversies

    In spite of his popularity, Himesh Reshammiya has been the target of criticism. In the past, his critics had suggested that success has gone to his head, and that he had signed on films indiscriminately.[6] His nasal twang has been criticized by many. Reshammiya initially defended himself saying that his voice is not nasal, but "high-pitched singing". Later, in an interview with The Times of India, he said "I accept I'm a nasal singer."[7]
    In his debut film as an actor, Aap Ka Suroor - The Real Love Story, Reshammiya added a song Tanhaiyaan from Boney Kapoor's proposed film Milenge Milenge.[8] Initially, Reshammiya had composed the song for Kapoor's film but later decided to use it for his own movie. Tips, which held the audio rights of Milenge Milenge, accused Reshammiya of copyright violation, as audio rights for Aap Ka Suroor - The Real Love Story were acquired by T-Series.[9] However, Reshammiya defended himself saying that he had made Kapoor listen to the song, but it wasn't included in Milenge Milenge. He also claimed to have tried to get in touch with Kapoor for seven months, and since there was no progress on the film, he decided to use the song for his own movie.[10] In June 2007, they reconciled their differences after Reshammiya apologized.[11]
    In November 2006, Himesh remarked that Mukesh, Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, and R D Burman had a nasal style of singing. He also claimed that he had thirty-six hits in a year, and none of the above mentioned artists "ever gave the same number of hits in a year".[6] He said this in response to allegations that all his songs are nasal-based. The remark invited the wrath of late R D Burman's wife, Asha Bhosle. Later, Himesh clarified that his intention was not to insult R D Burman and apologized several times to Asha Bhosle.[12].
    In November 2006, Reshammiya and his co-artists were questioned by the Income Tax department about their income from a concert in Surat. The organizer of the show, Nanu Ghaswalla, claimed that the IT officials were upset because they had been denied free passes for the show.[13]
    On June 27, 2007, Himesh Reshammiya visited the shrine of Sufi saint Moinuddin Chishti, disguised in a burqa, reportedly to avoid crowd of fans. Some people objected to this, and some even felt that it was a publicity stunt for his forthcoming film.[14] Later, Reshammiya issued an apology for "offending religious sentiments", which was accepted by the Anjuman Committee that runs the shrine.[15] The Khadims (servers) of the Anjuman Committee said that he had not committed any offence, and there was no need for an apology.[16]
