This time it is quite a change in my choice of picking a song......Kishore Da's jubilant romantic number.
Kishore Kumar’s voice in fact helped many an actor, not just superstars, in their careers. For instance, Shashi Kapoor, who did not have much of a career to speak of in early 1970s then got to act in movies like “Sharmilee”, “Chor Machaye shor” etc where Kishore Kumar was the playback singer. These movies rode on the popularity of the music of the movie, that largely comprised of songs sung by Kishore Kumar. These movies riding piggyback on the success of their music helped Shashi Kapoor become such a well sought after actor that he used to give dates on hourly basis, rather than on shift basis. That is how many offers he got and signed in 1970s. This is one such song that helped Shashi Kapoor’s career as an actor no end.
I hope you will like my cover.
