Known as the ‘Man with a golden voice’, Mukesh started his career after he was spotted by a distant relative singing at a wedding. His relative, Motilal, took him to Pandit Jagannath Prasad to learn singing.

 

Mukesh got his first big break in Nirdosh (1941) but it was his voice in the songs of Raj Kapoor starrer Andaz (1949) which made him rise to instant fame. Songs like Kabhi Kabhi Mere Dil Mein and Sawan Ka Mahina made him a household name.


In 1974, Mukesh won the National Film Award for Best Playback Singer (Male) for his song Kayi Baar Yuhi Dekha Hai from the film Rajnigandha. Dil Hi Bujha Hua Ho To from Nirdosh was the first song in which he also acted.

 

Mukesh has sung over 1300 songs in his career spanning over four decades.
