Happy Birthday Udit Narayan.
“Udit struggled in Mumbai for 10 years before landing his first big break in Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak (1988). He says the birth of his son Aditya ( Narayan) in 1987 changed his fortunes. He was friends with musician Chitragupt, Anand-Milind’s father. “Anjaan saab introduced me to him. Chitraguptji liked my voice and gave me a chance to sing in Bhojpuri films. He introduced me to his sons, Anand and Milind, and recommended me to them.” They all got their moment of glory with the phenomenal hit Qaymat Se Qayamat Tak (QSQT, 1988), produced by Nasir Hussain and directed by son, Mansoor Khan. Everyone associated with QSQT was new and wanted to prove themselves.
“The first song I sang was Papa kehte hain bada naam karega. I was going to become a father then so I sang it with all those feelings in mind,” recollects Udit. The song is popular even today and has become an entry point of sorts for his live shows.”
