Sunil Sehgal has been keeping a low profile on the Bhangra scene, but that doesn’t mean he has not been busy in the studio. Sunil Sehgal is set to make an impression this year with the release of his solo production work, but before diving into his forthcoming album, Sunil shares a teaser of “1984” as a gift with his fans new and old.
“Here’s my Vaisakhi gift for all. It is a clip of my new song titled ’1984.’ I have always wanted to write a song about 1984 and its historical impact on Punjab and our community. I remember living in Punjab at this time and will never forget the riots as it has impacted my personal life,” Sunil Sehgal shares.
In 1984, Indian troops were focused on capturing Sikhs due to tension between Prime Minister Indira Gandhi and the Sikhs in Punjab, this is now referred to as the anti-Sikh riots. Indira Gandhi was assassinated by her Sikh bodyguards setting off the riots.
The release of “1984” in the upcoming weeks will be part of a charity project Sunil is working on. Stay tuned for details.
