The man who donned multiple hats during his lifetime, Kishore Kumar may be the only one who was successful in the field of playback singing as well as acting, unlike most other singers in Bollywood who have tried, but not quite made a mark in the acting department.  

Kishore Da’s deep voice possessed the power to bring about a plethora of emotions in the listener’s heart and mind, and his impeccable comic timing while performing on-screen was for everyone to see. Besides this, he had a multifaceted personality and displayed his expertise in other fields such as direction, song compositions, scriptwriting and more.

And since it is Kishore Da’s birthday tomorrow (he would have turned 88 this year), we thought this is the perfect time to create a monsoon playlist for all you guys. So here’s a tribute to the legendary singer whose mesmerizing voice has had people enthralled since ages (and it still does). 

Ek Ladki Bheegi Bhaai Si

Ab Ki Saawan Mein Jee Dare

Bheegi Bheegi Raaton Mein

Rimjhim Gire Saawan

Aaj Rapat Jaye

Kaatein Nahi Kat Te
