Singer Alka Yagnik’s Birthday


One of our readers Blesson is a great fan of Alka Yagnik. So, ignoring the other celebrities born on this day (please forgive me for that), I decided to celebrate Alkaji’s birthday with her fans by posting about her today. I met Alka Yagnik with my sister, for an interview, post the Choli controversy. She was supposed to meet us at Sunny Studios, Juhu. But, either the recording was completed before time or it was canceled, I don’t remember. Anyways, she had left the place by the time we reached there. Mobiles were not popular then. My sister called her home from a nearby PCO and she told us to meet her at her home. Luckily, the interview was completed without any other hassles.

Bollywood and Alka Yagnik: Dear Blesson, whoever you are, this is my post, so I am sharing some of the Alka Yagnik songs that I like. I cannot list all my favorite songs in one post. These songs, particularly, remind me of my growing up days.

Ek do teen… Tezaab (1988)

Mere angne mein… Lawaaris (1981)

Tumse badhkar duniya mein… Kaamchor (1982)

Sagre jagat ka ek rakhwala… Nastik (1982)

Gajar ne kiya hai ishara… Tridev (1989)

Gabbar Singh kehke gaya… 100 Days (1991)

Mera dil bhi kitna pagal hai… Saajan (1991)

Payaliya… Deewana (1992)

Tu na ja mere Baadshah… Khuda Gawah (1992)

  1. Dear Gaytri.. Thanks…
    Gayatri.. Yes I love Alka Ji’s voice… I feel that there are none born who can sing like her.. She has every perfect single dot in her vocal..

    You know I came From Andaman Nicobar Island to meet her.. Still struggling to meet her.. But one day I will meet.. sure..
    Today Singers comes to top chart after checking the followers in twitter and other media… But our Alka Yagnik ji’s vocal is enough.

    I also feel very bad when Anuradha Paudwal dubbed her Dil movie song in her voice. And I dont think Anuradha is even 1 % better than Alka Ji’s voice..

    No wonder Alka Ji ruled almost 3 decades…

  2. Your Pick of Alka Yagnik .. Yes.. best.. I know..

    I even like her each and every songs… bec her voice says something in each song..

    My pick..
    1. Jitna bhi kar lo pyar humko to kam lagega (Shikaar Movie)

    3. Ishq hai Ishq hai..(Anjane movie)
    4. Suno Jane wale (LOC kargil)
    5. Lal Dupatta (Mujhe shaadi karogi)
