The viewers are in for a delightful treat this Friday, as the Amul Star Voice of India participants present some of the gems made immortal by the great Kishore Kumar.
Shaan introduces Amit and Sumit to the audience, and Amit Kumar, a great singer himself, reminisces about his father, who would have celebrated his 78th birthday on August 4th, had we been fortunate enough to have him amongst us. Nostalgia is bound to grip the audience as both the brothers sing 'Aati Rahengi Baharein', reminding everyone of the golden voice that was known as Kishore Kumar.
Ishmeet fans are going to be disappointed this time with the singer being unable to perform as he is unwell.
Toshi carries on the feel of nostalgia with the punching number of 'Ek haseena Thi' from 'Karz'. I am sure, many in the audience would be curious to know how Toshi performed this number. Interestingly, Sumit observes that Toshi has a nice throw. Amit recollects that Rishi Kapoor had cancelled his shoot for the song 'Om Shanti Om' from the same movie because someone else had sung this number, while Rishi categorically wanted Kishoreda to voice it.
Mirande impresses the duo with 'Hungama Ho Gaya', while Irfaan floors them with his perfect yodelling in 'Jhoomroo'. Amit goes on to say that Irfaan perhaps is blessed by Kishore Kumar himself, who was the only yodeller in the industry.
Priyani takes centre stage with 'Karle Pyar Karle ke din hai char', and Prantik tries his best to emote 'O Majhi re'. Amit Kumar explains that a singer should have the apt expression to sing a particular song. He recollects that Kishore Kumar literally used to weep while singing the song. He was not only a singer, but a complete artist.
If Abhilasha's 'Aao Huzoor tumko' blows them away with her perfection, then Sumitra's 'Jaan-e- Jaan' elicits Sumit to comment ' Gaana sunke nasha sa cha gaya'. Not to forget the heart throbs and favourites, Harshit sang 'Intehaan Hogayi' while Arshpreet sang 'Jawaani Jaaneman'...
Watch all this and a lot more unfold in this Friday's, August 3rd, episode of Amul Star Voice Of India at 10 pm, only on Star Plus. The evening definitely promises to be a one to remember as this unbelievably talented bunch of singers win hearts with their soulful renditions and create a perfect foil to remember the great man with awe and inspiration by all his fans across the globe on the eve of his birthday.
