Who can bring back the essence of a Kishore Kumar
number better than Kumar Sanu
? And if he has Alka Yagnik
for company, the thrill of listening to those great songs simply
becomes indescribable. So it is Kumar Sanu
and Alka Yagnik
the nostalgia on K for Kishore
on Friday night. Together they bring alive songs like Tere mere milan ki yeh raina
…and Tumse badhkar duniya mein…
No mention of Kishore Kumar
can be complete without anecdotes about his
eccentricities and spirit of fun. So the celebrity judges have some fun
challenges for the contestants on the show. So there is Chetan Rana
doing an excellent job of singing out a news report from a Hindi
newspaper ala Kishore Kumar
while Nayan Kumar Rathod has to guess and
sing a song as soon as Alka gives a clue!
In the midst of all the singing and laughter there was some dancing and prancing too. Karan Oberoi with his Band of Boys
added more zing to the evening with their performance. Asha Bhosle
's grandson, Chin2
of Band of Boys, recalled going to recordings of Kishore da's songs
with his grandmother where the maverick singer used to pretend to be
accompanied by an imaginary child. The bitter truth about the song
would be pointed out by the imaginary child and Kishore da would chide
and reprimand the imaginary kid and say it is not good manners to point
out that the tune was worthless!
It's a Celebrity Special on K for Kishore this weekend. Do not miss the
songs, the anecdotes, Amit Kumar
's comments, Bappi Lahiri
observations and Sudesh Bhosle's quick wit!
It's all happening on K for Kishore this Friday February 1 at 9 pm only on Sony Entertainment Television.
