Acclaimed director Sanjay Leela Bhansali has made a distinctive name for himself in the film industry, behind path-breaking films like HUM DIL DE CHUKE SANAM, DEVDAS and BLACK, among others. Known for his perfectionist approach and attention to detail, the director took it a step ahead by making his debut as the music composer for his last film, GUZAARISH. GUZAARISH not only received critical acclaim for its sensitive direction and great story-telling, but also for Bhansali's music. This effort achieved him two GIMA nominations for Best Debut (Film Music) and one of the biggest honours for Best Music Director of the Year.
He has been nominated alongside Lehmber Hussainpuri (Sadi-Gali - TANU WEDS MANU), Krsna (Rangrez - TANU WEDS MANU), Bhadwai Village Mandal (Mehngayi Dayain - PEEPLI [Live]) and Mamta Sharma (Munni Badnaam - DABANGG) in the Best Debut (Film Music) category. In the Best Music Director category, others in contention with Bhansali are Salim Suleiman, Vishal-Shekhar, Pritam and Sajid Wajid & Lalit Pandit, among others.
The Global Indian Music Academy recently announced the nominees for the 2nd Chevrolet Global Indian Music Academy (GIMA) Awards. After the phenomenal success of the Awards last year, preparations are underway to hold this year's celebrations at the Kingdom of Dreams in Gurgaon, late September. Supported by all constituents of the Music industry, GIMA is a pioneering effort by Wizcraft International Entertainment to recognize Indian music transcending genres in the country, whilst giving the music industry a unified platform to celebrate its talent.
