Courtesy The Daily Times, 3rd Jan 2014 excerpts from an article written by Dr. Amjad Parvez :
"Manna Dey was very appreciative of the fact that actor Rajesh Khanna who always had preferred Kishore Kumar to sing his songs had given some songs to him (Manna Dey) also. Manna Dey always liked the way Rajesh Khanna picturised his songs or for that matter the songs sung by other singers also. Manna Dey, apart from already quoted songs, had rendered songs “Tum Bin Jeewan Kaisa Jeewan” and movie ‘Bawarchi’’s “Bhor Aaye Gaya Andhera” in 1972, “Nadiya Chale Re”, “Hasne Ki Chah Nei” in the movie ‘Avishkaar’ in 1973 and “Gori Tori Paijaniya” from the movie ‘Mehbooba’, (1976).
During the period from 1970 to1983, Manna Dey recorded a little over 500 songs in Bollywood. As the age caught him he became selective and chose to do less work in Mumbai and withdrew from 1992 onwards. He continued his singing spree in Bengali movies. He kept himself busy in singing bhajans and ghazals in different languages and appeared in live performances until 2012; his last live performance being in 2012 in Mumbai."
