Kishore Kumar was an Indian playback singer and actor. He was one of the most popular singers in the Indian film industry and from soft numbers to peppy tracks to romantic moods, Kumar sang in different genres but some of his rare compositions which were considered classics were lost in time.
According to Ashok Kumar, Kumar’s success came because his voice hit the microphone straight at its most sensitive point. He is widely regarded as one of the greatest singers in the history of Indian music.
Apart from Hindi, he sang in many Indian languages including Bengali, Marathi, Assamese, Gujarati, Kannada, Bhojpuri, Malayalam and Urdu. He also sang on private albums in several languages especially in Bengali. He won 8 Filmfare Awards for Best Male Playback Singer and holds the record for winning the most Filmfare Awards in that category.
He was awarded the “Lata Mangeshkar Award” by the Madhya Pradesh government in 1985–86. In 1997, the Madhya Pradesh Government initiated an award called the “Kishore Kumar Award” for contributions to Hindi cinema. In 2012 Kumar’s unreleased last song sold for Rs 1,560,000 (1.56 million) at the Osian’s Cinefan Auction in New Delhi. (Article Source – Wikipedia)
