The voice behind one of the most played songs, 'O lal duppate vali tera naam to bata' from the 1993 movie, Aankhen, Sudesh was honored with the Mother Teresa Millennium Award for his immense contribution to Music in a ceremony in Kolkata in 2008.

Sudesh who had the ability to mimic the voices of several renowned Bollywood actors like Sanjeev Kumar, Ashok Kumar, and Vinod Khanna, used his natural talent to become a dubbing artist in Bollywood. He actually lent his voice to Sanjeev Kumar and dubbed for him when the superstar actor prematurely passed away before completing the film Professor Ki Padosan. Whilst, his mimicry ability was widely popular, it was his singing that made him a prominent figure in the Indian film industry.

The superstar singer got his big break in 1988 when he sang for Zalzala and over the years, in his illustrious career, Sudesh sung for more than 150 films across Hindi and Marathi languages.
