The Kapil Sharma Show 25 May episode today we see popular Bollywood singer Kumar Sanu and lyricist Sameer Anjaan gracing The Kapil Sharma show. Interestingly, both of them hold records for their work. While Sanu revealed that he has lent his voice to more than 20,000 songs, Sameer added that he has penned more than 3,500 songs and poems. It also came as a revelation for many, when Kapil Sharma revealed their real names. While Sameer’s real name is Shitala Pandey, Kumar Sanu’s name is Kedarnath Bhattacharya.
Going down memory lane, Kumar Sanu recalled his musical journey. Talking about his first stage performance, he shared that it was on a railway track, where he had to sing in front of a mafia gang. He revealed that he only agreed to perform because he was scared. But when his father, who was quite an orthodox man, got to know, he slapped him hard. His father even told him that he can never sing or earn money like this.
While conversing with Kapil Sharma, Sameer revealed that Gulshan Kumar didn’t want to produce Aashiqui and was more interested to produce only its music album. It was Sameer, who requested Mahesh Bhatt to step in as he was finalised to direct the film. He shared that him and Mahesh Bhatt went to meet Gulshan Kumar in his office. There, Bhatt convinced Kumar that the film and the album will make history for his company. And the filmmaker also vowed that if it didn’t work, he will never direct a movie again. Gulshan Kumar not only agreed to produce the film but also promised extensive marketing.
Sameer went on to share that he was inspired by his wife when he penned “Dekha Hai Pehli Baar” for Saajan. Terming it as one of his best songs, Sameer shared that his wife refused to believe that he had dedicated the song to her. When he had told her, she refuted it by saying that he may be one of the best lyricists but is a bad liar.
While Kapil Sharma was seen reminiscing about Kishore Kumar’s musical journey, Sameer revealed an interesting fact about the late singer. Sameer shared that Lata Mangeshkar and Asha Bhosle couldn’t sing with Kishore Kumar as he used to always crack jokes during pre-recording that resulted in the sisters losing their concentration.
