The world today celebrates the 87th anniversary of the legendary actor0singer-comic, Abhaas Kumar Ganguly, or who is popularly known as Kishore Kumar. Kishore Kumar was one of the most versatile, terrific and unsurpassable singer-actor of his times. What we however forget is the fact that Kishore Kumar was not only a great singer but an impeccable actor with a great sense of comic timing! On the occasion of his birth anniversary, here is looking back at some of his most iconic comic roles.
Kishore Kumar’s first film as music director and he gave us the yodelling-best, Main hun jhum jhum jhumroo, and many other masterpieces. The most iconic highlight of the film is the moment when Kishore Kumar comes in exaggerated makeup as an African chieftain, with equally over the top dancing.
Based on the Hollywood film, ‘You’re Never Too Young’, Kishore played the role of an adult-turned-plump kid. He teamed up with his wife, Madhubala once again for this film. However, the highlight of the film continues to be the fact that Kishore Kumar who was already a famous singer by then, not only sang the male, but also the female parts.
It was during this film that the popularity of Kishore Kumar, as an actor and a singer, was at an all-time peak! For this film, he came together with Madhubala and his brothers. The film though was believed would be a flop, went on to become the biggest hit of the year, and is still remembered for the iconic songs, ‘Ek ladki bheegi bhagi si’ and “Haal kaisa hai janaab ka’.
This film brought together the comic legends Kishore Kumar and Mehmood and gave us one of the memorable moments in cinematic history. Though Kumar did not play the lead actor in the film, he played the affable pan-chewing music maestro, who helped Sunil Dutt snag the love of his life.
