Super hit songs like Kora kaagaz tha yeh man mera, Nadiya se dariya, Zindagi ka safar bring back nostalgic memories of an era filled with romance. An era when Rajesh Khanna was King and his co-stars Sharmila Tagore and Mumtaz were at their peak. The rocking 70s - that's what K for Kishore presents this weekend.
While great singing continues on the show, Babul Supriyo is fast turning out to be a greater entertainer along with Sudesh Bhosle while Rajeshwari joins in the fun, a la Sharmila Tagore style! So get ready to enjoy a greatly entertaining episode of K for Kishore with the best songs of Rajesh Khanna in this special episode that pays tribute to the first ever-real Superstar of Hindi films.
Nagesh Kukunoor, a true blue Kishore Kumar fan is finding it tough to name his favorite five singers on the show so he decided to name six instead. His vote went to Nayan Kumar Rathod, Milind Ingle, Arnab Chakraborty, Chintan Bakiwala, Shailendra and Amanat Ali last week. Who will make it to his top five this week remains to be seen...
The show is getting more interesting as it inches closer to the grand finale. Apart from great songs, there are some great challenges from the judges that the contestants have to take on. This week the contestants have to prove their mettle with two songs and a challenge from Nagesh Kukunoor. He gave the clue and the contestant need to sing the correct song. What followed was truly hilarious.
Apurva opened the innings with his opening song "Ek ajnabi haseena se" followed by "Naach meri bulbul". Amongst all those who enjoyed the song most were two special people in the audience, a Kishore Kumar look alike and a duplicate Rajesh Khanna too! Amanat Ali chose two soulful numbers : "Deewana leke aaya hai" and the evergreen "Zindagi ka safar". Chetan Rana preferred to sing "Yahan wahan saare jahan pe tera" and "Kora kaagaz tha yeh man mera". Arnab sang "Nadiya se dariya" and Yeh public hai.
The good singing is interspersed with interesting anecdotes about Kishore Kumar recollected by son Amit Kumar.
Enjoy the fun-filled episode of K for Kishore this Friday March 14 at 9.00 pm only on Sony Entertainment Television.
