I owe nearly 20 years of my life’s best cherished music, moments to this 54 years magician born as Maqsood Mehmood Ali (son of a famous Indian Actor). As an artist Lucky Ali has achieved that no other musician has achieved in their entire career and won several music lovers.
Lucky Ali launched his first album in the year 1996. I still remember and cherish the 100 Rupees spent on this album (100 rupees was a lot those days for a cassette and still remember, the writing note behind the cover that the music was recorded in London Music Studio). From then on, really waited for every song crafted and released by this soulful musician who never cared for the conventional style of music and always wanted to create music in his own different way that connected to people really well and uniquely.
I relish and recollect those hours spent daily waiting to watch the “Anjani Rahon Mein” Song by Lucky Ali as a promo song on Doordarshan. The music never fails to take me back to the good old days even now. Lucky Ali continue to shower us with many more wonderful albums like Sifar, Aks, Khabi Aisa Lagta Hai, Raasta Man, Xsuie. Not only the music, often the music videos created for his songs used to be really unique too.
With the IndiPop bidding farewell from the our lives, Lucky Ali continued to touch us through some awesome songs in Bollywood releases. Not to forget some awesome songs like Gori Teri Ankhen etc. I personally would love to see more songs released from this laid back genius who has such rare talent. Thank you Lucky Ali!
