After a successful showing of Rooh-e-Majrooh in Dubai in 2014, Ibaadat took its Kaviraaj Shailendra show to Dubai. The Shailendra show had already received earlier wide acclaim from the audiences in Delhi, Mumbai and Kolkata. This show was staged at Sheikh Rashid Auditorium, Dubai on 4th December, 2015.
The show was widely appreciated.

It was magical performance!! Never expected. Well done. Shyam Bhatia, Chairman, Alam Steel Group
This was quite easily the most magical music event we had ever experienced in our 28 years in Dubai. That’s not a statement made lightly, having attended some of the best music shows – including Rock, Jazz, Indian Classical and other genres over the years in fabulous settings. The conversations with each of you and the singers and musicians brought to life the huge effort you obviously put into each event, making the experience memorable. The performance Ibaadat puts together is special for a number of reasons – your obvious passion for poetry and the performing arts which translates into Ibaadat; the absence of ‘commercial’ colour to the proceedings and most importantly the respect and inclusion you displayed for the life and talent of Kaviraaj Shailendra.

Really enjoyed. Your hard work and thought (and that of your team) in putting it together is evident. Love the fact that you keep varying the format and length of various segments so that one is left wanting more at every stage. It was quite informative too - especially on the non-film poetry or even some of the film songs. Like I didn't know that the Anuradha songs that I love were written by Shailendra. The quality of singing was also excellent - particularly, Suprriya. Somehow one appreciates the lyrics more when listening to live music rather than the recorded voice.
