Today’s third post is the Antakshari with Jagjit Singh. This article is a continuation of the Antakshari with Adnan Sami that was posted last week. The last song in the previous article ended with the Hindi letter ‘na’. In the current article, the first song begins with the same Hindi letter.
Singer Jagjit Singh was a Ghazal singer to reckon with and is considered to be responsible for the revival and popularization of Ghazals. No wonder he is still called the ‘King of Ghazals’. He composed and sang in several languages. His style of composition and singing is considered to emphasize the words of the lyrics. This factor is brought out in the songs he sang for the movies Prem Geet (1981), Arth (1982), Saath Saath (1982) and other movies.
