Meet the top best music PR in India – Dale Bhagwagar.
When this Bollywood publicist started out in PR, music promotion was a relatively unexplored segment and there were no music PR agencies in India. There were a few publicists who focused on promoting film music while handling the publicity for movies, but none specializing in music publicity.
Handling the Music PR for some of the Who’s Who of the music industry
Even Dale focused on film PR, celebrity PR and television PR. But when singers like Bhajan Samrat Anup Jalota, Ghazal King Pankaj Udhas and Bhangra King Daler Mehndi took him on for their media coordination, Dale realized that there was a lot of potential in music artist promotions, as well as publicity for music albums, music videos, singles and even music composers.
Over the years, his PR clients have included names such as Melody Kings Nadeem-Shravan, princess of pop Anaida, Indi-pop rap star Style Bhai, Ghazal Queen Penaz Masani, Santoor Maestro Rahul Sharma and the musical blockbuster Rock On!!

Most quoted Indian publicist in the world
Apart from the music segment, Dale has handled the PR for film actors such as Hrithik Roshan, Shilpa Shetty and Priyanka Chopra. He has also handled the media for movies like the Shah Rukh Khan-starrer Don, Farhan Akhtar-starrer Rock On and the post-release PR for the Hrithik Roshan-starrer Koi… Mil Gaya.
