Amit Kumar Genre: World/Reggae, Film/Bollywood, India Hometown: India
Amit Kumar is the elder son of the late - legendary all - rounder (composer,
singer, lyricist, film maker, writer, actor) the late Kishore Kumar. He
obviously decided to follow in his fatherís footsteps. Though he did not train
in classical (like his dad) music, he did his riyaaz in the form of singing
practice, mainly of his fatherís songs. For the last ten years, he has been
grooming under Pandit. Satyanarayan Sharma.
Amitís first - ever recording was ĎMain Panchi Matwala Reí for his father in
Door Ka Rahi (1971). But his first major adult song (he was 11 when Door Ka Rahi
was recorded in 1965) was R. D. Burmanís ĎBade Ache Lagte Hainí (Balika Badhu).
He had recorded earlier for MISA (Madan Mohan) and for a Rajesh Khanna film with
music by Salil Choudhary, but these films never took off.
