Kishore Kumar Hindi Actor

Kishore Kumar

Kishore Kumar is an Indian playback singer, who had no formal training in music world. The most easily recalled image of Kishore Kumar that comes in our mind is of his smiling with eyes. He was not just the singer, but a composer, actor and even a script-writer. He is also known for having lent his voice for innumerable hit songs for superstars like Rajesh Khanna and Amitabh Bachchan. At the age of 18, Kishore had set off to Mumbai with a passion for singing. His brother Ashok Kumar was already an established actor and he got a break to sing for Ziddi, which established the leading actor Dev Anand in the industry, but Kishore Kumar did not get any recognition. He acted with top actresses like Nimmi, Meena Kumari, Madhubala, Nutan and Vyjayanthimala Bali and every film with them were declared a hit. Later on, in 1958, the trio Ashok-Anup-Kishore teamed up to do a zany comedy with Madhubala in a film Chalti Ka Naam Gaadi, which was again a hit. With the success of Chalti Ka Naam Gaadi, kishore Kumar married Madhubala. Later on, Kishore’s popularity went down as his films flopped and even his numbers were not popular. He sang song for S D Burman’s Guide and Jewel Thief, but music lovers had found Mohammad Rafi’s voice more appealing. He started to establish his neglected singing career then, but failed. It was with Aradhana, where S D Burman had given a actual break to the popularity of this genius and his voice and every song that he had sung for Rajesh Khanna was a craze. After the release of Aradhana, Kishore scored over Mohammad Rafi and reigned as the only popular singer in Hindi cinema. The legendary singer had married four times. It is a history that after Aradhana, he never looked back. Every hero in Hindi cinema wanted him to sing a song for him. Even Dilip Kumar, who was the supporter of Mohammad Rafi wanted a Kishore number for his films Bairaag and Sagina. Kishore Kuamr also sang some popular numbers in Bengali cinema too. He also has sung in other languages too. The legendary singer passed away in 1987. He left behind his golden voice. Considered as one of the greatest singers in the country, Kishore Kumar represented what is widely known as the “golden period” of Indian popular music and cinema.
