Singer Anwar's Birthday
Singer Anwar’s Birthday

Today is Singer Anwar’s birthday. He was born this day in 1949. Anwar Sahab rose to fame due to the uncanny likeness of his voice to that of Rafi Sahab. One of his popular songs is Dosti imtihaan leti hai… from Naseeb (1981). I have been unfortunate enough to meet stalwarts in Bollywood like Geeta Dutt, Mohammad Rafi, etc. So, I made it a point to meet singers of the day for interviews whenever I could. I don’t like to meet anybody without any valid reason. I like to give them publicity for the time they give me. That is how I got to meet this crooner.
