Hindi film industry has seen many versatile personalities but there was one man who was so multi-dimensional that he defied and went beyond the definition of ‘Versatility’. He was none other than Kishore Kumar, the laakhon mein ek super-talented artiste who did everything, right from acting, singing, music composing to writing and directing. On the insistence of his elder brother Ashok Kumar, he came to Bombay and started acting in many films. But his core interest always lied in singing though he did not have any formal training in music. He did manage to sing for himself on screen along with a few songs for Dev Anand while continuing with acting. After a string of flops in the early days, he started taking his acting career seriously and soon became a pioneer who set the trend of a ‘Comedian Hero’. And his films like ‘Baap Re Baap’, ‘Aasha’’, ‘Chalti Ka Naam Gaadi’, ‘Dilli Ka Thug’, ‘Jhumroo’ and ‘Half Ticket’ gave him ample opportunity to prove that. Screen Legends KISHORE KUMAR Part 1 presents his initial journey as an actor along with some LOL moments from his funny scenes and antics. And not to forget the interesting story that led to the transformation of his voice which became unique and breathtaking.
