Ganesh Acharya, Famous Bollywood Choreographer:
I have come for Guruji’s love. When I had seen him in Mumbai, the radiance of his face pulled me here. I had heard of a place called heaven, in childhood. Today, I have seen it.
Guruji is a performer par excellence who okays his dance moves in a single take. I have worked with Shahrukh, Salman who may go up to 10 takes. I feel that I am not teaching him the steps, but he is demonstrating them to me.
Kittu Karanjeet Saluja, Film Director
This endless crowd of fans, and their devotion is unparalleled. MSG Online Gurukul does not only have Guruji as Guruji, but he is playing several other roles. Till today, you have seen him as a Guru but in the film he will be seen in a younger, boyish avatar. He has performed 6 plus roles, each totally different from another. It is a rare feat, And he is a one- take artist.
Guruji’s daughter Honeypreet has also given a seasoned performance , at par with best actresses. His younger daughter, Amanpreet, has sung amazingly well.
Savio D’ Souza, General Secretary, IFPI (International Federation of Phonographic Industry)
Revered Guruji is transforming society through films. A Platinum award is very rare honour. He has shown the path to the films industry and well would like him to do something about piracy as well.
Rajat Kakar, MD SONY (DADC)
Moment of great joy and I feel blessed. 1 million music CD’s sold, show, a rare achievement. I always wanted to meet the magic Guru, today the whole world recognizes his achievements.
