Encouraged by the tremendous response received in Delhi, the Shakeel show was staged in Mumbai on 10th October, 2012, Ibaadat’s first anniversary, at the Veer Savarkar Auditorium.
16 of his most poetic film songs were rendered by consummate singers; 2 accompanied by dance,. There were also recitals in tarannum of his 4 most famous ghazals, and several of his most notable shers were brought up during conversation.
The show received an overwhelming appreciation.

Congratulations for a great success. I have received an outstanding and excellent feedback from many persons from the industry who attended the show. They all said, and me too, that this show was unique and the concept was outstanding which is not seen or heard.Javed Shakeel Badayuni
My heartiest congratulations for organizing such a wonderful programme. It was really a life time experience….thoroughly enjoyable and soul stirring event. I would ever cherish the memory of this programme which was very well researched, conceptualized and executed. It was great to see how you could bring out best from the performers. If there is an award for contributions to Indian film music and poetry it should undoubtedly go to you for such efforts. Harun R Khan, Dy. Governor, RBI
What a wonderful and beautiful programme! The earlier Rooh-e-Majrooh too was absolutely astounding… both very different in format and style of presentation, selection of songs and high quality of singing. I wish Ibaadat produces more such shows. Ameen Sayani, Famous Compere
