While several bands of all-male members have flourished all across the world. In India, that hadn’t quite been the case in the history of its pop music till 2000. ‘A Band of Boys’, featuring Karan Oberoi, Siddharth Haldipur, Sherrin Varghese, Chin2 Bhosle and Sudhanshu Pandey, who came to the scene in the early 2000s, was one such group of singers who got tagged as ‘India’s first boy band’ due to its popularity, though there were others like Euphoria, who were in the limelight even before them. The band came up with two albums, ‘Yeh Bhi Woh Bhi’ and ‘A Band of Boys’, both of which included several hit songs like ‘Meri Neend’ and ‘Gori’, among others. They also starred in the movie ‘Kis Kis Ko’ in 2004.
However, as Sudhanshu left the band for his acting ventures, the band went off the spotlight soon after. But whenever they decided to come together again, it was always termed as a ‘comeback.’ One such instance was,‘The Ungli Song’ in 2014 where they came together along with Shibani Kashyap to urge people to vote during the general elections. We also see Asha Bhosle, who is one of the singers, Chin2’s grandmother, shooting with the band in 2016, again for a 'comeback', though we couldn’t find the video on the Internet.
But this time, the collaboration is happening for sure and the comeback too is surely on. The legendary singer has collaborated with the band for the song ‘Dil Sarfira’. As they launched the song, Bhosle went live on Twitter. We see Asha’s melodious voice being used, but she lets 'A Band of Boys’ take charge at the event. The members of the band revealed it is for their upcoming film and not for an album.
They also gave a glimpse of why they were popular in those days, by enthralling the audiences with a lively performance.
Siddharth Haldipur has also quit the band, and has been replaced by Danny Fernandes. The four singers had also launched another song 'Yuhin Jalne Ko' in June this year.
