About 10 years ago, I had posted a question on an online Q and A forum encouraging people to post questions that they wanted to ask the film personalities I would mention. One of the celebrities was Amit Kumar. One girl asked me, “Who is he?” It is really unfortunate and sad that people do not know this Kishore Kumar’s talented son, who gave us such beautiful songs like, Na jane kahan se aayi hai… from Chaalbaaz (1989). I met Amit Kumar at the beginning of my career when I interviewed him for the Sunday edition of a daily newspaper. He is among my favorite singers of his time, not only because he was the voice of my favorite actor Kumar Gaurav, in the initial stages of his acting career. Today is his 67th birthday. I will let you in on a secret. Since childhood, I have this habit of trying to imitate his voice in solitude. Didn’t I tell you, I am a Tom Boy? 🙂

Bollywood and Amit Kumar: There are quite a few songs Amit Kumar has sung for Kumar Gaurav. If I keep adding them, the list will be too long. Here are just some of my favorite Bollywood songs sung by him:

Na jane kahan se aayi hai… Chaalbaaz (1989)

Uthe sab ke kadam… Baton Baton Mein (1979)

Bade achche lagte hain… Balika Badhu (1976)

Jaate ho jane jana… Parvarish (1977)

Freeny O Freeny… Khatta Meetha (1978)

Aaati rahengi baharen… Kasmen Vaade (1978)

Daddy yeh tumne kya kiya… Shabash Daddy (1979)

Tu meri Mehbooba hai… Humare Tumhare (1979)

Dekh mausam keh raha hai… Duniya Meri Jeb Mein (1979)
