Dubbed the 'King of Indipop' in his early years, this classically trained singer from Faridabad has been one of the most loved voices in the playback world. Of late, though, he's cut down on film songs to concentrate on live concerts. This year, he made news because of his copyright battles-a long-standing issue in the music industry. Nigam also sang for a Japanese animation film The Mystical Law, while his 2013 track 'Abhi Mujh Mein Kahin' from Agneepath continued to top music charts.
Fast Fact: Nigam has announced the second season of Tihar Idol, a reality show for the inmates of Tihar Jail.
