Reshammiya's music has a style of composition based on a fusion of Western and Indian classical music, Western and Indian Rock music accompanied by techno beats. He started his acting career with his debut film, Aap Kaa Surroor.
Reshammiya was the first Indian singer to perform at the Wembley Arena and the Heineken music hall in Amsterdam.
Reshammiya was actively involved in mentoring and judging the singing competition, Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Challenge on Zee TV. His group was known as Jai Mata Di Let's Rock Gharana. He was the winning mentor of the show in 2007. In 2009, Vaishali Mhade, a female contestant from his Jai Mata Di Let's Rock Gharana, won the singing competition.

In his debut film as an actor, Aap Kaa Surroor, Reshammiya added a song Tanhaiyyan from Boney Kapoor's proposed film Milenge Milenge. Initially, Reshammiya had composed the song for Kapoor's film, but later decided to use it for his own movie. Tips, which held the audio rights of Milenge Milenge, accused Reshammiya of copyright violation, as audio rights for Aap Kaa Surroor – The Real Luv Story were acquired by T-Series. However, Reshammiya defended himself saying that he had made Kapoor listen to the song, but it was not included in Milenge Milenge. He also claimed to have tried to get in touch with Kapoor for seven months, and since there was no progress on the film, he decided to use the song for his own movie.
In April 2019 It was confirmed that Himesh Reshammiya will be back on-screen with the film Main Jahaan Rahoon, the film was named after the famous song "Main Jahaan Rahoon" from the film Namastey London, which was composed by him, besides he will be collaborating again with lyricist Javed Akhtar in the film since they worked together in Namastey London. Alongside that he will be acting in three other projects, one being the sequel of The Xposé which has been named The Xposé Returns. Reshammiya has also confirmed that he will make a biopic on the brave soldier Bishnu Shrestha, the film will be based upon his heroics of the Maurya Express train robbery. But cast and crew have not been finalised yet.
