Daler Mehndi is a popular Indian purveyor of bhangra/pop music. After a brief career as an American cab-driver, he returned to his native India and began making music based on traditional tunes he heard as a child. His music is well-liked in his country, and has gained some notoriety in the West thanks to his crazy song "Tunak Tunak Tun". He is also a philanthropist, using his vast wealth to help India's less fortunate.

In March 2018, Mehndi was convicted of human trafficking from a 2003 case and sentenced to two years in prison. He bailed out and appealed his conviction.
