Singer Shailendra Singh’s birthday falls on October 4th, i.e., tomorrow. He is not only a singer but also an actor. He has sung many Bollywood songs and some Marathi songs in the 1970s and the early 1980s. Post his graduation from St. Xavier’s College, Mumbai, he joined the Pune-based Film and Television Institute of India for training in acting. However, fate had other things written for him. When he was doing his second year at the FTII, he got a break as a playback singer for the movie Bobby (1973). Then, there was no looking back. Shailendra Singh is one of my favorite singers of his time and I love several of his songs.
