KUALA LUMPUR, Jan 7 (Bernama) -- Famous for churning out hit after hit in Hindi, Bengali, Tamil, Telegu and Malayalam for more than two decades now, well-loved Indian playback singer, Shreya Ghoshal, will be performing her first live concert in Malaysia at the Plenary Hall, Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre on Feb 23.

"I am super excited about performing in Malaysia for the first time. I am looking forward to meeting all my fans in Malaysia,” she told the Malaysian media via a video press conference from Mumbai, India, today.

The singer notable for a varied repertoire of songs including pop, classical, ghazal and bhajan will be performing some of her Hindi hits like Chikni Chameli (from the film Agneepath), Dola Re Dola (Devdas), Deewani Mastani (Bajirao Mastani), Teri Meri (Bodyguard) and much more during the 90-minute ‘Shreya Ghoshal Live In Concert Malaysia’ where she will be backed by a live band.

The 36-year-old, award-winning artiste has legions of fans around the world and needless to say here, too, where there is a strong Bollywood and Kollywood following.      

"My show in Kuala Lumpur reflects the impact Bollywood has had on the international stage, and just how far it has come,” she said, while adding she will try her best to include a Malay song in her performance.
