 Based on the book of the same title, the one-hour musical event takes you through the life of the legendary SD Burman with live singing of superhit Bollywood retro melodies composed by SD Burman, and interspersed with crisp narration of the back stories, interesting trivia and anecdotes behind those songs. The format allows for an entertaining insight into the musical genius. And there may be a couple of audience quizzes too that could win you autographed copies of the book!
