Kishore Kumar: The Enigma

Singer, actor, director, producer, an Enigma… Kishore Kumar!

One of the few entertainers that Bollywood had, whose songs, performances, films remain a sweet memory etched in each of our minds. Born Abhas Kumar Ganguly, he was fondly known as Kishore Da to those who knew him and also for those who miss knowing him from close quarters. 

According to singer, music composer, Shankar Mahadevan, Kishore Kumar is one of the top 10 singers in Bollywood, everyone else ranks number 11 onwards. 

While there were playback singers who had received years of professional training, Kishore Da was one who developed his own signature style, without any form of classical training… and what a yodeller he was! Known for his eccentric ways, his acting prowess and his style of singing proved it further. Great talent comes rare, it is a diamond that shines in a coal mine. 

We’ve also heard that a biopic is being made on this star, and Bollywood’s new superstar, Ranbir Kapoor shall be playing the role. Needless to say, it will be wonderful. 

Kishore Da married 4 times in his lifetime, his first marriage, to Ruma Ghosh inspired the story for Hrishikesh Mukherjee‘s Abhimaan, that starred real-life couple, Amitabh Bachchan and Jaya Bachchan. His second wife was the very beautiful Madhubala, and the couple’s marriage lasted till Madhubala passed away in 1969; post which he married two more times. 

Kishore Da had recorded his last song, Guru Guru from the film, Waqt Ki Aawaz starring Mithun Chakravarty and Sridevi in 1987 before he breathed his last. He died of a major cardiac arrest during his elder brother, actor Ashok Kumar’s birthday party.
