Biography

Kamaal Khan was born in Highgate, North London on 12th March 1972. He has two brothers and two sisters and spent most of his early years living in Finchley, North London. He developed an interest in music from a very early age and had amassed a collection of over 200 Hindi film soundtracks by the age of 12.

Music

Kamaal was initially quite hesitant to enter the music industry but after much persuasion by his elder brother Jamal, Kamaal finally agreed to take up a career in music. In 1995 he wrote and produced his first song “O Oh Jaane Jaana” at Yojo Working Studios in Kensal Road, London. The song released in 1996 becoming an instant hit and achieved Platinum status within 2 weeks of its release. The song also featured in the 1998 Bollywood blockbuster “Pyar Kiya To Darna Kya” starring Salman Khan & Kajol. The soundtrack went on to become a multi-million selling album and the huge success of the movie has widely been attributed by film pundits to the popularity of “O Oh Jaane Jana”. As a result of his successful debut single, Kamaal was immediately signed by record label HMV (India) in December 1997 on a 3 album deal for a huge undisclosed sum.

Kamaal went on to achieve further success with his solo albums “O Oh Jaane Jana” (1998), “Suno To Deewana Dil” (2000) and “Kal Raat” (2003). MTV award winning director Shivraj Santhakumar collaborated with Kamaal to shoot a music video for Kal Raat in Rome. Rumour has it that the music video caught the eye of Bollywood director Rahul Rawail and landed Kamaal his debut acting role.
