Zeeshan Hoodbhoy is an accomplished entrepreneur in the music and entertainment circuit, where he made his name at a young age. While working as a Premier DJ, he was Official DJ of the Street Ballers AND 1 mixtape Volumes 1-3, Official DJ of Akon’s Konvicts on the Loose Mixtape, one of the West Coast’s premier Indian DJ’s where he DJ’d with Panjabi MC, Bally Sagoo, Tigerstyle, Sukhshinder Shinda, Kal Penn, and DJ Pup Dawg selling out venues like House of Blues, Goodbar and many other venues up and down California.
During his time as a DJ he frequently rubbed shoulders with big names in the entertainment industry, such as Akon, Bizzy Bone, Marques Houston, Twista, and others, working with and getting to know them on a more personal level.
In addition to DJing, Zeeshan also has experience with producing, management, and entrepreneurship, and one day hopes to put his own music out there for people to listen to and enjoy. Until then, Zeeshan is focused more on producing with his company Hoodbhoy Entertainment.
Zeeshan and his partners are very interested in expanding internationally, primarily to include more Bollywood companies and celebrities. Zeeshan comes from a South Asian family, which afforded him a diverse upbringing and contributed to his interest in Bollywood. This closeness gives him a personal connection to the culture. And with Bollywood as the largest movie-producing industry in the world, it makes sense that Zeeshan and Hoodbhoy ENT would look to increase their presence there, working on songs with the likes of Tiger Shroff and Romeo Johnson are already in the works. The Hoodbhoy Family has been well known for being involved in the Bollywood Scene; from Hrithik Roshan to Sharukh Khan the ties lie strong. Without strong dance segments and music tracks, a movie in Bollywood is unlikely to be a success, making music a crucial part of the industry.
Music is, naturally, essential in other film industries around the world as well, but musicals are no longer considered the norm. A movie can still be successful without a great soundtrack in America, or any other film scene. However, in India, that is not usually the case. Music in Indian cinema is so critical that many of India’s top hits come from film soundtracks, and is the most dominant music genre, rather than artists who produce music for any purpose other than being part of a film’s soundtrack.
Needless to say, Zeeshan enjoys a challenge and is rarely in the same place for long. So much that when he’s not producing music, promoting Hoodbhoy Entertainment, or working on putting together their next event, Zeeshan Hoodbhoy is still pursuing his doctoral residency in Internal Medicine in Las Vegas. He also independently maintains a concierge health/nutritionist consulting business that focuses on helping others educate themselves on how to manage a long, healthy lifestyle.
