Bollywood Desk. Kishore Kumar has passed 33 years. He died on 13 October 1986 in Mumbai at the age of 56. As interesting as the stories of his life were, so was the voice of Kishore Da. A glimpse of four similar stories:
Episode no. 1: Congress banned
This was in the 80s, when the country was in a state of emergency. At the same time, the Congress requested Kishore Kumar to sing a song for which he was not ready. This has hit the Congress so hard that they have banned Kishore Da’s songs on All India Radio. Congress leader Vidyacharan Shukla, who banned him, was later killed in a Naxal attack.
Episode no. 2: b. And. Strange conditions were placed in front of Chopra
Kishore Da’s ‘ridiculous’ nature was once the victim of filmmaker Baldev Raj Chopra. The teenager’s brothers Ashok Kumar and BR Chopra were friends from the beginning. But because of family ties, when the teenager went to work in Chopra, he set some conditions. Then the teenager said that today is my bad time, you are betting, when my time comes I will bet.
Kishore Kumar was born on 4 August 1949 in Khandwa, Madhya Pradesh. His childhood name was Abhas Kumar Ganguly, but later he changed his name to Kishore Kumar.
Everyone else forgot, but not teenage photos. The teenager was betting when BR Chopra came to him for a picture of him. As a teenager, you would come after dhoti and put socks and shoes on your feet! Come and eat me a pan to sign. It also leaks saliva, so that your face is red. The funny thing is that Chopra did not drink or wear dhoti.
Case No. 3: When R Shikesh Mukherjee was deported by the guards
Once upon a time. Related to a project, he went to his house to meet well-known director Kishore Kumar, but his bodyguard prevented him from leaving the house and forbade him from insulting him. In fact, it happened because of a confusion.
Impressed by Mr. Kiel’s songs, he wanted to be a singer like him. Kishore Kumar arrived in Mumbai at the age of 18 to meet Sehgal, but his wish could not be fulfilled.
Kishore Kumar did a show for a Bengali organizer who did not pay him. Angered, Kishore Kumar sternly instructed his gatekeeper that if any Bengali babu came home, he should be dismissed. Hrishikesh Mukherjee was also a Bengali. The doorman fired him as the same stage show organizer.
Episode no. 4 Beware of Kishore Kumar
People often guarded the dog board, but Kishore Kumar kept a ‘Beware of Kishore Kumar’ board outside his house. Once producer-director HS Rawal went home to pay him. After paying, when he started shaking hands with Kishore Kumar, he started biting Ravel’s hand in his mouth, Ravel was shocked to see, then Kishore said – You haven’t seen the signboard?
Episode no. 5: Staying in the car for a few hours despite the scene ending
A director who was troubled by Kishore Kumar’s strange curiosity sought the court’s help and took a deal from the court so that he could sue the teenagers if they did not listen to him during the shooting. The next day when the teenager arrived on the set of the shooting and was working as the director said.
The teenager’s elder brother Ashok Kumar said in an interview that the teenager’s voice was like a torn bamboo in his childhood. Once his foot fell into a vegetable-cut skit, causing his toes to be cut off. Physicians treated the finger, but the pain did not go away. They cried loudly for several days. This is why Kishore Da was so fascinated that his voice changed.
During one shot he simply did not get out of the car because the director did not tell him to get out. The director explained in another car scene in the same photo – you have to get some distance from the car and then get off, the scene will be cut. But the teenager did not get out of the car. The director waited there. The next day it was learned that he had gone to Khandala in a car.
Episode no. 6: Skulls and bones were placed in the house
The teenager didn’t like being in the limelight and getting media attention. He liked to spend time in solitude and did not like to be interviewed. People rarely came to see him, so he found skulls and bones in the living room of his house. Also, a red light was installed in the room. The special thing is that the teenagers themselves were scared to watch horror movies.
In 1948, Kishore left Mumbai unfinished and moved from Indore to Mumbai. But in the canteen of Christian College there were 5 rupees and 12 laws. It is said that the face of the famous song “Panch Rupai Barah Ana …” of ‘Chalti Ka Naam Gaadi’ (1956) was inspired by taking this amount of orrow.
Episode no. 7. Half the money – half the work
At one point Kishore Kumar was shooting a film and the producer gave him half the money. It is said that the teenagers got upset and came to the shooting set after half of the make-up. When the director asked her to do full makeup, she said ‘half the money, half the work. All money, all work ‘.
Episode no. 8. O sword, give me eight thousand
Kishore Kumar’s life was an interesting anecdote. C. Swords attached. Once he was working with them, but R.K. C. Talwar gave him half the money. Then the teenager Da was sure of his policy, he would arrive in front of the manufacturer’s house every morning with a sword and shout, “O sword, give me eight thousand … O sword, give me eight thousand….”
Kishore Kumar had four marriages. Yet he felt lonely. He said in an interview that no one here is a friend. He used to say that it is better to talk to a tree than to make friends. Kishore Kumar used to talk to the tree.
