By Manju Mittal

Seeg Productions organised a great evening on April 25, 2019 Meet & Greet and a press conference hosted by Satinder Benepal of the Maharaja Haveli now at its new location in Dural in the presence of organisers Harpreet Singh Sahni, Jatinder Vicky, Councillor, Blacktown City Council Moninder Singh and major sponsors and supporters of Satinder Sartaj concert team.  Star attraction was the well known multitalented Sufi singer and poet Satinder Sartaj, ahead of his concert ”˜Satinder Sartaj live in Sydney’ at the Sydney Opera House on Saturday the 27th of April. Satinder Sartaj, an internationally known Sufi singer and poet who played the character of Maharaja ”˜Duleep’ in the 2017 film ”˜The Black Prince’. 

Maharaja Haveli Indian Restaurant in Dural felt as if one had stepped into a small village of Punjab. The Haveli elegantly showcases the traditional village lifestyle of Punjab.  A group of like minded people and local Sydney media attended the event with the Emcee of the event Manpreet Sekhon who was superb as she engaged the audience quite capably.

After arriving in Sydney from the airport Satinder headed straight to the Haveli, much to the delight to his fans. Satinder Sartaj dressed in casual outfit looked elegant, dazzled and mesmerized everyone with his charming personality. During the Q & A round, Satinder enjoyed an interactive session with the media and community members.

Satinder Sartaj was asked how often he practices his riyaz for singing, to which he smiled and said, “I don’t get enough time for riyaz these days as I travel a lot but, yes, music is an integral part of my life as it touches my soul, music is in my roots.” Satinder went on to sing a couple of lines from his popular Punjabi devotional song ”˜Sai’ by special request. It was truly stunning to hear him up close in his wonderful voice. He was happy to be at the Haveli, a replica of the Punjabi village, as Satinder hails from a village where his father was the Sarpanch (village chief) and grew up with Punjabi poetry, his first love.

At the end of the event guests scrambled to get pictures with Sartaj. Facebook drives us all these days keen to take pictures with our idols, Bollywood stars who we idolise. But having said that it was a well organised, entertaining and interactive evening with the singer/actor, highlight of the evening, a delicious dinner served by the Haveli.
