Music composer Khayyam and filmmaker Yash Chopra were honored with the Whistling Woods International Maestro Award 2011 for their contribution toward Indian cinema and the entertainment industry.

Various celebrities were present including Ronnie Screwvala, Shabana Azmi, Yash Chopra, Subhash Ghai and, of course, Khayyam.
“Both Khayyam Saab and Mr. Yash Chopra are stalwarts of our industry and have been great veterans,” said Ghai. “Their presence on this significant occasion is truly appreciated. Their achievements are a source of inspiration for these students to achieve their dreams.”
Rekha Bhardwaj Ready to Release Two More Albums in 2011
National Award-winning singer Rekha Bhardwaj, who already released her Sufi album Kabir Chaura Sufi Chaura, is going to release two more albums this year.
“I am working with Vishal on an album, which is a tribute to the poems of Padma Vibushan winner Dr. Bashir Badrsaab,” said Rekha. “While Vishal is composing songs, both he and I plan to sing together for this album.”
She also is working on another album titled Ishka Ishka 2, which will have lyrics by the award-winning Gulzar and music composed by her husband, Vishal Bhardwaj.
“When I got married and moved to Mumbai, he [Vishal Bhardwaj] was still struggling,” said Rekha. “I supported and assisted him when he was working full time as a music composer. That’s when I learnt the process of creating and arranging music, and the seeds of playback singing were sown. I observed how passionately singers worked and learnt to stay patient and confident, despite rejections.”
Gramophone Record Makes a Comeback withTimeless Melodies Yesudas
“Piracy has reduced the audio industry to shambles,” said Premachandran of Satyam Audios. “The release of gramophone records may help stall this to some extent. Music released exclusively on records will prevent piracy. Perhaps this going back will help the industry move ahead.”
