Just like us, Google is also a fan legend playback singer Mukesh and on his 93rd birth anniversary. Google has dedicated a special ‘doodle’ this Friday to one of Bollywood’s most revered singer.
The doodle features a smiling face of the Mukesh, born Mukesh Chand Mathur, with a microphone and an illustrated still inspired from one of his acclaimed numbers, ‘Kabhi kabhi mere dil mein’ from the movie Kabhie Kabhie (1976).
Google India also tweets about the doodle page – ‘On the homepage today, we celebrate the award winning voice that also won hearts.
Mukesh, along with Mohammad Rafi, Manna Dey and Kishore Kumar,was one of the most popular and legendary singers of his era.Amongst the numerous nominations and awards he won, his song “Kai Baar Yuhi Dekha Hai” from film Rajnigandha (1973) won him the National Film Award for Best Male Playback Singer. Mukesh is also popular as being the voice of legendary actor Raj Kapoor. He was also nominated whooping fourteen times for best playback singer in Filmfare Awards and won four times.
Apart from playback singing for Bollywood movies, Mukesh also released Bhajans, Ghazals and Classical Music. Mukesh died suddenly on 27 August 1976 on the eve of a concert. The concert was performed by playback singer, and Mukesh’s son, Nitin Mukesh. His songs continued to be released in movies after his death.
He’s a true legend and his songs are still instant mood fresher, my personal favourite song of his is from the movie Mera Naam Joker Kehta hai joker. The way he describe the life of a joker and relating it to real life is mesmerizing, just look at the first four lines- Kahta hai joker saara jamaana, Aadhi haqikat aadha fasana, Chashma utaaro phir yaaro dekho, duniya nayi hai chehra purana. We also congratulate Singer Mukesh on his 93rd Birthday Anniversary, the singer may have died but his songs are still in our hearts.
