Waris brothers Manmohan Waris, Kamal Heer and Sangtar recently lost their father Dilbagh Singh on 25th April, the last rites of whom were performed at his native village yesterday.
Dilbagh Singh had been suffering from ill health since long.
His last rites were performed at his native village Halluwal, District Hoshiarpur, Punjab. Many big names from Pollywood, politics and bureaucracy were present there to pay their tributes to the departed soul.
Dilbagh Singh has left behind his wife Gurbaksh Kaur. According to familial sources, the last prayers will be held on 30th April at Gurudwara Shaheedan, Mahilpur between 12 to 2 PM.
Waris brothers quoted that their success and their current positions are all because of the wise thoughts and nuturing of their father and mother.
Waris brothers, also know as Heer brothers are a very well known name in the Punjabi folk industry. In 1990, Manmohan Waris's family moved to Canada where he made his first album 'Gairan Naal Peenghan Jhootdeye.' The album was a great success and when Waris returned to Punjab, Punjabi's everywhere just couldn't get enough of him. So he decided to move back to India. His career has never seen a foggy day since that time. Waris's philosophy about his name and fame may have something to do with that. In his opinion "keeping your name on the top is not an easy thing, you have to work hard to get here, and you have to work harder to stay here."
