Mukesh-Rajesh Khanna combination is an interesting one. It is an experiment that only the music directors Salil Chowdhury, Kalyanji-Anandji, Lakshmikant-Pyarelal and R D Burman performed. Unfortunately, most others fell for the popular demand of the safe-playing producers rather than interesting experimentation. Thus, Mukesh sings for Rajesh Khanna is the topic of my next post.
