Roopkumar Rathod

Roopkumar Rathod

Biography

His brother is Shravan Rathod (of the composing team Nadeem Shravan), his younger brother is playback singer Vinod Rathod, and his father was a classical musician. What choice did Roopkumar Rathod have but to become a musician himself? Though he's best known for his playback and ghazal singing, Rathod was not always a singer: he labored for years as a tabla player. It took the prodding of now-wife Sonali to get him to sing, and the two faced serious opposition for years because of Sonali's divorce from her first husband. The freeze-out didn't last, however, and Rathod's given star turns singing for films like Border, Hero, Hindustani and Kareeb.
