Hilarious Kishoreda Interview


Did you ever know why Kishoreda  came to Mumbai in the first place, leave alone joining Hindi cinema’s rat race? What made him choose a vocation that  he would not even dream of for his enemies? That he would shoo away his movie directors, producers and distributors, yet they could not be prevented from making him a major movie star? His take on why he went cuckoo at media and filmwallahs, what made him marry and leave three of his four wives, the most delicious cuisine on earth and last but not the least what he thought the interviewer should look like after his death?!

Check out Kishore Kumar’s stunning piece of conversation with Pritish Nandy in the mid-80s. The online material I’ve linked to was published in January 2008, so many of you must have read it by now. Those not so lucky earlier can help themselves by hitting bellow. The article brings out Kishoreda various facets. Friendly caution: bouts of laughter expected, avoid reading this eye-popper in public places.

  2. I suspect, all those who are extremely talented in lives would be lonely in some or the other respect. They would find it hard to fully mingle with the world around due to their own inner qualities.

    Kishore Kumar’s hidden sadness – his inability to cope with the cine world and the three of his four life partners – is more than evident from his words. But then it was a blessing in disguise, one could say. His fans were lucky to be on the receiving end of his melodious outcry.
