Master Saleem (born 13 July 1982 as Saleem Shahzada), sometimes referred as Saleem Shahzada (Salim Shahzada), is an Indian singer from Punjab, known for his work as a playback singer in Bollywood films, like Heyy Babyy (2007), Dostana and Love Aaj Kal (2009). He has also released private albums, of Punjabi Music, Religious and Sufi music.

Early life and training

He was born Saleem Shahkotii (Saleem Shahzada), in Shahkot, near Jalandhar, Punjab He is the son of the famous Sufi singer Ustad Puran Shah Koti, who was also the guru of folk singers, Hans Raj Hans, Jasbir Jassi and Sabar Koti. At the age of six Saleem also became his disciple and started learning singing.

Career

At the age of eight, he gave his first public performance at the opening ceremony of Bathinda Doordarshan (TV station), with his song, Charkhe Di Ghook, and thus earned the name Master Saleem. Soon he started appearing on TV shows like, Jhilmil Taare.

Saleem’s first album, Charkhe Di Ghook, was released when he was 10 years old. It was released on the label Sur Taal, created by his father’s friend, Majnider Singh Goli, and went on to become a hit. This led to several Punjabi music and religious albums and live shows. His song Dhol Jagiro Da also became a huge hit and giving him wide popularity.In the late 1990s, however as he was growing his voice started changing, which lessened his popularity.He made his comeback in 2000, with the Sufi number Aj Hona Deedar Mahi da, which he sang at a New Year’s programme at Doordarshan channel, and later released albums dedicated to Goddess Durga including, Mela Maiya

(2004), Aj Hai Jagrata, Meri Maiya and Darshan Kar Lao.

Around 2005, singer Jasbir Jassi introduced him to music director Sandeep Chowta, who subsequently called him to Delhi to record single Sajni in Sony Music album Teri Sajni.

Eventually Shankar Mahadevan, of the music trio Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy, heard his performances at a jagaran at the Devi Talaab Mandir, Jalandhar, being aired at a religious TV channel, and thus Saleem made his debut as playback singer with single “Mast Kalandar” from the film Heyy Babyy (2007) under their music direction. The song was a hit and launched his Bollywood career. This was followed by most well-known singles including “Tashan Mein” from the film Tashan and Maa Da Ladla from the film Dostana (2008), andAahun Aahun in Love Aaj Kal (2009). and in 2010 some of his hit songs have been “Humka Peeni Hai” from “Dabangg and “Shakira” in “No Problem and “Chamki Jawani” inYamla Pagla Deewana. In 2011 one of his first hits was “Rola Pe Gaya” in Patiala House
