The Kapil Sharma Show 21 April episode today was all about music and nostalgia on The Kapil Sharma Show. Iconic singer Kishore Kumar’s wife Leena Chandavarkar along with her sons Amit and Sumit Kumar graces this most-loved weekend show. It would be for the first time that the late singer’s family makes an appearance together on national television.
Apart from sharing anecdotes from Kishore Kumar’s life, the night turned magical as Amit Kumar sang some of his father’s popular songs. Kapil Sharma, who himself is a singer, also showed off his singing skills.
Amit Kumar shared that he is always compared to Kishore Kumar. But Amit never felt bad about it as he knew he could never match up to him. He also stated that RD Burman was the music director, who stood by him and asked him to always be himself. The music maestro was the one to give him the song “Bade Acche Lagte Hain”. Amit even added that it was his wish to work with SD Burman that unfortunately never got fulfilled.
Kapil Sharma was astonished to hear that Amit Sharma has crooned the popular song “Bade Acche Lagte Hai”. He also stated that all this while he thought it was Kishore Kumar’s vocals. Amit then revealed the secret of how he got the song. He shared that RD Burman and Shakti Kapoor heard him singing at a random event. He wasn’t even a well-establish singer then. But impressed by his talent, the music director offered him the song.
Going down memory lane, the family revealed how just like his onscreen characters, Kishore Kumar was also a romantic in real life. His wife Leena shared how Kishore had randomly proposed to her saying “mujse shadi karogi”. He also wanted to get married in a church in complete filmy style.
Talking about the challenges in the industry, Amit Kumar shared how he was not paid for his songs in the movie Teri Kasam. Amit also said that he had sung all the songs in the film but wasn’t even paid for one. And the cheque that was given to him had bounced at the bank.
