Kishore Kumar Special: Know Some Amazing Things About The Legendary Singer-Actor

We don’t need to give an introduction to this legendary singer and actor. Kishore Kumar was and is still one of the well-known personalities of the Indian Cinema. He may not be with us today but the singer has always been in our hearts.

We often hear Kishor Da’s songs on television and especially on the radio. As he left for the heavenly abode today, let’s take a moment and remember this legendary singer and know some of his amazing things.

Kishore Kumar’s real name was Abhas Kumar Ganguly.

It is said that the inspiration behind the song Paanch Rupaiya Barah Aana from Chalti Ka Naam Gaadi was the Rs. 5.75 he owed to the canteen of his college in Indore. Hats off to his imagination!

Kishore Kumar’s first song was Marne Ki Duayen Kyon Mangu for the film Ziddi.

He sang in a number of languages apart from Hindi which includes Bengali, Marathi, Assamese, Gujarati, Kannada, Bhojpuri, Malayalam and Oriya.

Kumar never had a formal training in singing! Well, that’s quite surprising.

Kishore holds the record for winning maximum Filmfare Awards. He bagged eight Filmfare trophies for Best Male Playback Singer.

Being quite paranoid about his payment, the singer made it a point to sing only after his secretary confirmed the receipt of money from the producers.

A filmmaker once approached the court to get a verdict that the talented singer-actor will have to follow his instructions during the shoot as Kishore Da was quite notorious. Kumar took it so literally that after a car scene he drove till Khandala as the director forgot to say cut!

In spite of his “no money, no work” principle, sometimes Kumar recorded for free even when the producers were willing to pay.

Kishore learned to yodel by listening to his brother Anoop Kumar’s Austrian records.
