Indian musician Mithun Sharma, popularly known by his stage name Mithoon, will perform at the Coca Cola Arena on June 11, following the last match of the World Padel League. He will be joined on stage by the Indian playback singers Javed Ali, Mohammad Irfan, Asees Kaur, Abhishek Nailwal, Nakash Aziz and Vishal Mishra — in a performance named ‘Mithoon and Friends’.

Born into a family of musicians, Mithoon started learning music at the age of eleven. An award-winning singer, songwriter and composer, he has set the tunes for many popular Bollywood movies, including 'Shamshera', 'Bas Ek Pal', 'Anwar', 'Murder 2', 'Jism 2', 'Traffic', 'Kabir Singh', 'Ek Villain', 'Half Girlfriend' and 'Shivaay'. He won the Filmfare Award for Best Music Director twice — for 'Aashiqui 2' and 'Kabir Singh'.

Mithoon wrote and composed 'Sanam Re', which was recognised as the most streamed song of 2016 at the Global Indian Music Academy Awards. Another song that he wrote and composed, 'Mein Phir Bhi Tumko Chahunga', has crossed one billion views on YouTube.

The line-up of singers on stage will perform some of their most popular hits and chartbusters that rule playlists around the world.
