We have always enjoyed the shows with curtains open but hardly anyone think of the show going behind curtains. Yes, there is more life to a performance just because of some spectacular performances behind the scenes. However, there are people who have rose to the fame in the music industry in Bollywood because of their unbounded and spectacular qualities. One such name is the famous Dholak Player, Girish Vishwa.
