Shankar-Jaikishan-Mukesh-Raj Kapoor Nexus


Today’s first post is Shankar-Jaikishan-Mukesh-Raj Kapoor Nexus. The dictionary meaning of nexus is, “a complicated series of connections between different people or things.” However, the word has been used in a derogatory manner in the last several decades. I feel that it’s time we should attribute its rightful meaning to the word and I will do my part by writing about one of the greatest collaborations in Bollywood – that between Shankar-Jaikishan, Mukesh and Raj Kapoor. I have shared a few songs composed by Shankar-Jaikishan, sung by Mukesh for Raj Kapoor in this post. I hope you like them.
