The year-old Mehdi Hasan, better known as the "Shahenshah-e-Ghazal" has been something more than a myth in India for years, although there are few Indians who have seen him perform in real life.

The singer who is the father of 13 children from his two wives was born in in Jaipur district in Rajasthan.
