MUKESH MATHUR A VERSETILE SINGER


Mortal Men Immortal Melodies

Mukesh Chandra Mathur was born on 22nd July 1923,
in a small middle class family in Delhi. He was interested in
acting and singing right from childhood and was a great fan of Kundan
Lal Saigal. In spite of the fact that he only studied till the 10th
standard he was able to obtain a good job as an assistant surveyor in
the department of public works, where he worked for seven months.

However fate had other plans for him. While in Delhi Mukesh had
recorded some non-film songs secretly. Then, Mukesh was bitten by the
Bombay bug like scores of other young people before and after him. He
arrived in Bombay with the hope of becoming a movie star. He stayed
with his relative the famous actor Motilal.

 

 

Mukeshji was a great fan & devotee of “Amar Gayak Saigal Sahab” He always
copy to Saigal’s songs and sing in their friends circle. His song “Dil
Jalta Hai To Jalne De Was almost copy of Saigal Gayaki.

That time was Pankja Kumar Mullick time. He was the famous
music dir. singer of Bengal and their song Piya Milan Ko Jana From Film Kapal
Kunda, was so famous…Mukeshji also nspired the song and he sang “Gokul Nagri Jana…

Mukeshji Also Sang Saigal Sahab’s favourite tune “Karun Kya Aas Niras
BhayiJana” in their own style “Sanwariya Raag Se Aag Lagi…
