Muscat: Famous Bollywood playback singer Sunidhi Chauhan delighted a packed house with her performance at the City Amphitheatre on Saturday.

Besides Sunidhi, Indian Idol fame Rakesh Maini was also here, supporting her as male singer while Ravi Raj acted as the anchor. The concert, touted as one of the biggest show in 2014, was organised by Eventful.

When anchor Ravi Raj took over the stage, the audience was regaled with some hilarious comedy and mimicry.

His friendly jibes at the south Indian communities, Gujaratis, Punjabis and Maharashtrians communities were met with raucous laughter.

Finally, Sunidhi made her appearance with Dhoom Machale song of Dhoom, sporting a new hair style. Clad in a black and golden outfit, the lady on the floor took the audience by storm!

There was never a boring moment as Sunidhi had the audience dancing in their seats to the tunes of Marjani, Dance Pe Chance, Deedar De, Mind Blowing Mahiya and Beedi Jalaile. She also sung some of her old hits like Kabhi Kabhi and Chura Liya Hai which forced the audiences to sing with her. The concert was a treat for all Bollywood fans in Muscat as she mixed old and new songs. She also sang from the movies like Happy New Year and Kill Dill, which was released a couple of months back.

Then came some of the duet songs of Rakesh Mani and Sunidhi which set the house on fire and everyone was seen dancing at their seats.

Dr Sathish Nambiar, managing director, Eventful, said, "In recent years, Eventful has definitively raised the bar for entertainment in Muscat, with smash hits like A.R. Rahman's 'Jai Ho' concert, the Senorita evening presented by Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy, and Vishal-Shekhar's Golmaal Express, not to mention the Shreya Ghoshal concert. We are happy to add Sunidhi Chauhan to the list as she is known for her power-packed performances."

The singer sang first for the Bollywood film Shastra but it was only Sandeep Chowta composed RGV's Mast (1999) that gave Sunidhi instant fame with the Ruki Ruki Si Zindagi track. And from there onwards, there was no looking back.

Sunidhi has paired with Udit Narayan, Sukhwinder Singh, and Alka Yagnik and most famously with Sonu Nigam for several hit tracks. She even collaborated in the 'Heartbeat' (India Mix) with Enrique Iglesias.

She has even worked with music composers such as A.R. Rahman, Bappi Lahiri, Vishal Shekhar, Nadeem Shravan and Shankar Ehsaan Loy. She has also recorded songs with Jatin Lalit, Pritam Chakraborty, Rajesh Roshan, Anand Milind and Anu Malik along with well known lyricists like Gulzar, Irshad Kamil, Prasoon Joshi, Javed Akhtar, Swanand Kirkire, Sameer and Anand Bakshi.
