A man who can sing and dance, act and mimic, write and compose, make you laugh and cry all at one time,a person who lives by defying norms,a genius whose talent is immeasurable, Multi-faced, versatile, eccentric, sensitive - There has been only one such a man in Hindi filmdom, Kishore Kumar. Kishore Da was born on August 4, 1929.Since his childhood Kishore nurtured dreams of becoming a singer and following the footsteps of his idol K. L. Saigal. The young Kishore's real ambition was to become a playback singer and which became true, when, music director Khemchand Prakash called him to lend his voice for Dev Anand for the film Ziddi in 1948, the song was 'Marne Ki Duvayen Kyon Maangoon".He recorded his last song on october 12, 1987, a day before he died. Lata Mangeshkar's fond and fitting tribute best describes this great personality....."He was a sampoorna kalakar (the complete artist). He knew everthing. I call him India's Danny Kaye. Producer, Actor, Singer, Director, Lyricist, Composer....."
