In the year 1980, he got his break to sing in a Hindi film when music director Rajesh Roshan offered him to sing in the film ‘Unees Bees’.The song was “Mil Gaya Mil Gaya”. It was a big thing for Udit, as he got an opportunity to sing his debut song with the great Mohammed Rafi and Usha Mangeshkar. He was noticed but his real big break came in the year 1988. He sang the very famous song “Papa Kehte Hain” from the movie ‘Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak’, which went on to become that year’s biggest hit.
