Shiv-Hari is the music director duo of Shivkumar Sharma and Hariprasad Chaurasia working in the Bollywood film industry of India. Shiv Kumar Sharma was born on 13th January 1938, whereas Hariprasad Chaurasia was born on 1st July 1938. Their career is noted for five major movie scores: Silsila (1981), Chandni (1989), Lamhe (1991), Parampara (1993) and Darr (1993). Silsila, Shiv-Hari's first major hit, starred Amitabh Bachchan and Rekha and had lyrics by Javed Akhtar. Three songs stand out from the rest of the score: the lilting romantic duet Dekha Ek Khwab (sung by Lata Mangeshkar, Kishore Kumar, and chorus), the poetic Yeh Kahan Aa Gaye Hum (rendered by Lata Mangeshkar, interspersed with dialogue recited by Amitabh Bachchan), and the riotous Holi song Rang Barse (sung by Amitabh Bachchan). The two other major musical scores done by Shiv-Hari, Chandni and Darr, were really only noted for one song each. Chandni featured Mere Haathon Mein Nau Nau Chudiyan Hai by Lata Mangeshkar and Darr (which starred Sunny Deol, Juhi Chawla, and Shah Rukh Khan, was directed by Yash Chopra, and had lyrics by Anand Bakshi) had the upbeat Jadu Teri Nazar by Udit Narayan.
