Kishore – Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna

Versatile singer and a man of different moods Kishore Kumar or otherwise called `Kishor Da` would have celebrated his 79th birthday today. An actor, playback singer and comedian Kishore Kumar still reign the industry`s heart and also those who still cherish his melodious voice. His voice was like a fresh air for all those who understood his vivacious creations. His artistic voice was like a mystic appeal that generated scores of waves for those interested in music and genuineness. The artist had always delivered his best be it his musical display or his artistic capabilities. He was surely a man who was ahead of his time.

He was born in Khandwa (MP), his father Kunjalal Ganguli was a pleader, an advocate and mother Gouri Devi was a simple housewife who belonged to a wealthy family.

His was the voice that sang unforgettable numbers like the joyous 'Paanch rupaiya baara aana', the soulful 'Zindagi ka safar', the romantic 'Pal, pal dil ke pas' and the foot tapping 'Eena meena deeka' that has people doing the twist even 50 years later. Mere Sapno Ki Rani and Roop Tera Mastana, which became smash hits are one of many which we all humm in our private moments. U can easily check his remix songs on any of the charts. Such was his profoundness for music that the scores are still relishable by the younger generation. Once music director Anu Malik regarded him by saying, "One can only copy him, none can innovate like him,"

However, to call Kishore Kumar only a singer would be underestimating his talent. He was a multi-faceted personality who was at once a lyricist, composer, producer, director, screenwriter and scriptwriter. And in all these areas he has left his unique mark. He is an idle for all the music directors in our country today.

Noticeable fact: Anand originally was supposed to star Kishore Kumar and Mehmood but due to some misunderstandings between him and Hrishikesh Mukherjee due to which the idea was dropped and new stars Rajesh Khanna and Amitabh Bachchan were casted.


He has sung in many languages including Marathi, Assamese, Gujarati, Kannada, Bhojpuri, Malayalam and Oriya.
He holds the record for most number of Filmfare Awards won for Best Male Playback Singer.
His first film as an actor was Shikari (1946), first song Marne ki duayen kyon mangu for the film Ziddi (1948
First filmfare as Male playback singer for Roop Tera Mastana.
He was a genius when it came to singing be it roop tera mastana, Humein aur jeene ki, Saagar Kinare or the energetic Khaike Paan Banaras Wala

And as one song sung by him, states itself….
Chalte Chalte mere ye geet yaad rakhna……. Kabhi alvida na kehna-kabhi alvida na kehna

Kishore Kumar We wish you a Very Happy Birthday You live forever with us in your music.....................
