Talking about the concert, Harshi enthusiastically stated, “I am super excited to be a part of these concerts in UK, which is my home. Sharing stage with Mika Singh and Daler Mahendi is a big deal for me. I recently worked with Mika on a film song, Raat Saturday Kiv hai but sharing stage with him to a live audience is euphoric. Well for this one I also get to perform with Daler Mehendi and his shows have always been total sell out. Both these singers are stalwarts, I’m sure this would be a great learning experience for me”.


Harshi will be supporting both Mika and Daler Mehendi with their tracks and sing a few numbers from her crop of hit tours and current playback numbers Jaeger Bomb from the recent release Tum Bin 2 & Raat Saturday Ki Hain with Mika. The collaboration with the Daler Mehendi and Mika is not only a concert for Harshi but also a way to connect with Bollywood lovers across the world.


“Harshi brings in a lot of energy to my songs. I think we have a great working equation, mujhe uske saath kaam karne mein kaafi mazaa aata hai. Kaafi Chulbuli hai, she is always a fire on stage and I have full faith in her talent. The girl is here to stay, mark my words”, said Mika, while waiting backstage to break into his gig with Harshi.


“I grew up at a place which is quite close to the Wembley Arena and I had this secret dream of performing there. In my head this place is sacred. I feel a huge surge of job satisfaction today cause I’m getting to perform here with two of the biggest names in music. Is this real? I need to pinch myself”, signed off Harshi.

About Death is Not the Answer: Book:

Did you know that India is the world’s suicide capital with over 2. 6 lakh cases reported every year? But what we know about the causes of suicide lags far behind our knowledge of many other life-threatening illnesses, partly because the stigma surrounding suicidal behaviour has limited society’s investment in suicide research. It is said that more than 50 per cent of all those who attempt suicide tell someone about their intention. So how do you recognize suicidal symptoms in people around you and get help?
From insights into the mind of a suicidal patient and understanding why one is driven to suicide to the right kind of intervention when suicide has been attempted and a list of suicide hotlines, this book is an attempt to help thousands who are questioning the motive of their life. It is just as useful to anyone who has lost a loved one to suicide and is looking for a way to overcome grief.
