An entertainer extraordinaire, equally talented at singing, acting, composing music and even directing- Kishore Kumar was born Abhas Kumar Ganguly in Khandwa, Madhya Pradesh. He never underwent any formal training in singing and idolized Kundan Lal Saigal, imitating his voice and style.

His father encouraged his singing by rewarding him with 4 annas for singing a song from his brother Ashok Kumar’s movie and a rupee to sing like Saigal. Kishore Kumar moved to Mumbai in 1940 and got acting opportunities alongside Ashok Kumar in Bombay Talkies productions. Though he started his career as an actor, it was singing that was close to his heart.
