They’ve been called Bollywood’s Amar-Akbar-Anthony and it’s true — there is no doubt Shankar, Ehsaan and Loy are poster boys for communal harmony. Of course, their friendship is also a rock-solid testament to asli yaari. The musical trio have been working together for 20 years and continue to share a genuinely warm camaraderie. Not that an example of their kinship is necessary, but it was provided only a few days ago, when Ehsaan Noorani turned another year older on October 12.
Both Shankar Mahadevan and Loy Mendonsa were on hand to bring in Ehsaan’s birthday, with a celebration that happened to coincide with the launch of a new music channel last week. As a pitch-perfect rendition of ‘Happy Birthday’ found Lesle Lewis and Louiz Banks amongst the choir, Noorani cut two cakes and beamed from ear to ear. At some point during the festivities, Shankar and Loy even hoisted the affable Ehsaan onto their shoulders! Now that’s what we call hitting a high note — pun entirely intended.
