Ray's Liking for Kishore Kumar: An Anecdote

Ray's Liking for Kishore Kumar: An Anecdote

Postby Dr. Debasish Bhattacharya on Sat Nov 29, 2003 4:54 am

Satyajit Ray always used to appreciate versatility of Kihsore Kumar as a performing artist. Ray made Kishore Kumar sing Rabindrasangeet for two of his films, Charulata and Ghare Baire. Not only Ray liked Kishore Kumar for his spontaneous singing talent that had been an essential requirement for singing Rabindrasangeet but also for the quality of his voice.

This is not the end. Ray also was fond of Kishore Kumar’s talent in acting and his sense of humour. While conceiving the character of Goopi in his film Goopi Gayen Bagha Bayen he first had Kishore Kumar in his mind, both for acting and playback singing. Somehow Kishore Kumar could not make himself free for the shooting dates of the movie.

as far as my recollection goes from reading setons biography,kishore kumar wanted his younger brother anup be cast for baghaa whilst ray had already thought of robi ghosh.hence,they agreed to disagree.apart from kishore his initial thoughts involved chobi biswas to play the king,tulshi chakraborty the minister.
