Book Description

In our film universe, Kishore Kumar stands for such a unique multiplicity of talents, images and capacities that he defies any precise or conclusive evaluation. If you fudge him for one thing, he pops up with another. Not only did his voice lend a personality to our highly popular heroes, but he also projected himself as a versatile comedian, tragedian, dancer and singer of a wide variety of songs of different moods and spirits. Equally confounding was his personal life in the profession as well as in love and marriage.

To encompass such an artist within the two covers of a book is a daunting task. But author Shashikant Kinikar has been an expert at the job, having done several graphics of film biographies, directors, actors, singers, composers, over the years.


In the course of my career as a writer, I have had the privilege of being able to record the lives and works of some senior film artistes in my books, most of which were in Marathi - my mother tongue. I have also written books on veteran producer/ director/ actor Guru Dutt, music director Naushad and veteran film actress Nargis in English. I am glad to state here that all my books have been appreciated by the readers, as several editions of the books have already been published.

In the year 2009, to mark the 80th birthday of veteran actor/singer, the late Kishore Kumar, I had the privilege of writing a book on him in Marathi. The response was phenomenal, because up until then, there had been no book on Mr. Kumar recorded in Marathi.
