Dev Anand and Lata Mangeshkar went down memory lane on Kishore Kumar's 81st birth anniversary today to pay tribute to the legendary singer.
"Happy birthday Kishore, you are immortal. He sang his first song for me in Ziddi, 'Marne Ki Duayen Kyu Maangu'. His style had Saigal touch," the veteran actor tweeted.
Incidentally, melody queen Lata also tweeted about the same film, mentioning the first duet she sang with Kishore.
"Its Kishoreda's birthday today. I met him in 1948 and our first duet was recorded for the film 'Ziddi'. Khemchand Prakashji had composed the music and I think it was Kishoreda's first film as a playback singer. 'Jag mag jag mag karta nikla chand', his solo song, was a hit at the time," she posted on the micro-blogging site.
"Kishoreda was an amazing singer but also had the qualities of a song writer, music director, film director, actor, producer and story writer. He was very modest and lived like an ordinary man. He used to make us laugh a lot in the recording sessions. I'm missing him a lot today," she added.
Dev Anand continued his reminiscence in further tweets.
"His voice had great resonance though not a trained singer but used to come for recordings only after proper rehearsal or he used to postpone.
"Though I like all his songs but 'Dukhi man mere', 'Phoolo ke rang se' are close to my heart, before recording he used to ask me if I want him to sing in any particular way to match my mannerisms, so I used to tell him to keep me in mind while singing and I used to perform on his style, great synchronization. I truly miss him," he wrote.
