"Take movies, music, poetry out of life & its gone!"

An Artist's MOOD - Article by KISHORE KUMAR (When the veterans used to express it in their own writings -1) - (BTC Exclusive)


Going through the rich film magazines of the Golden Era i.e. before the ‘Gossip business’ took over from the 70s onwards, I was pleasantly quite stunned to witness the quality articles the film magazines (led by FILMFARE) used to offer its passionate readers every month as their regular feature.
The articles which were not written by routine journalists or columnists as usual, but actually penned by the veteran artists themselves ranging from the well-known actors, directors, music composers, lyricists, writers and even reputed producers. Further the subject matter of these articles touched every important aspect of life beginning from cinema being made all over the world to the various forms of creativity as music, drama, poetry, literature and much more. Reading many of these precious writings revealing a completely different (personal) side of our beloved artists, I strongly felt that this certainly needs to be shared with the maximum number of like-minded friends through BTC as we rarely get to see any such rich feature in the present film magazines, including the new age glossy version of FILMFARE itself.
Perhaps we have lost that loving emotional depth, humour & understanding from our multi-talented personalities in this new millennium or lack that courage to express or share ourselves with the public like these veterans used to do in their Golden Era of Hindi Films in the decades of 1950s-70s.
Mood by Kishore Kumar - Bobby Talks Cinema.comSo missing this important feature in the present world’s journalism and with a humble wish of adding much more to the life of all die-hard lovers of Hindi Cinema all over the globe, this is a new section being introduced at BTC, in which I will try to regularly share many of those worth reading articles written by our favourite artists themselves through the original high quality scans easily readable by enlarging the text too with the zoom option. And the first one in this series is from the inimitable Kishore Da himself with his famous dose of fun, wit and sarcasm talking about an artist’s MOOD and their unexplainable tantrums torturing the helpless producer.

With a hope that the effort would be appreciated by all dear friends of BTC, I really wish this valuable treasure entertains and enlightens maximum number of friends through the social networks and may it also encourage many other collector’s to share their possessed gems too making a serious effort.

Dear friends....let me reveal a hidden truth about great kishor Kumar ji...all of his life he stood fr his dignity...and the pain and kindness fr the people envoinment. And friends...I was a in a very young age when I came across to know this ..the world know that in the last years of kishor Kumar ji\'s life he announced to stop singing fr amitabh bachchan..the media promote a story that kishor invited amitabh fr the mahurat fr his film but amitabh didn\'t cm on that event...so kishor decided this .....but the real story was related to a movie were amtabh sang a song where kishor Kumar also sang number of songs...but on he cover of the music album producer put amitabh on the top of....frankly it was an ugly practise...kishor Kumar find it as n insult...everyone knows amithab nowhere stand near with kishor Kumar\'s singing skill and rank...but all of his life that time and till now he ever spoke to this issue...amithab ji is a great actor he should understand the pain of kshor ji...but he didn\'t yet....my humble request is with the people how are close amitabh ji to make a since of this yeasteryears fault he did and ask a forgiveness to great singer of every time....

Thanks for sharing the insight Jai Kishore.
Would like to suggest that do join FB groups of Kishore Da and old Hindi film music fans and share these insights there too.
You will not only get a decent response but would also get to know a lot more interacting with other die hard fans.
And you can even begin your own blog writing about the same.


Jai Kishor Sharma

Bobby Sing
