Google dedicates its doodle to 'The Man with the Golden Voice' Mukesh

New Delhi, July 22 (ANI): Google today dedicated the doodle on its India homepage to one of Bollywood's most acclaimed playback singers, Mukesh Chand Mathur, better known as Mukesh, to mark his 93rd birth anniversary.

The doodle shows a smiling handsome man holding a microphone with a snowy background having a beautiful graphic from Amitabh-Rakhee starrer 'Kabhie Kabhie,' where the couple is seen holding each other.

According to Google's blogpost, "The talent that earned him the nickname "The Man with the Golden Voice" took time to develop. Early on, he studied with classical musician Pandit Jagannath Prasad, and for years emulated his idol, singer K.L. Saigal. Working with music director Naushad Ali, who gave him the songs for Andaz, he eventually came into his own," says Google's blogpost.

Born on July 22, 1923 in Delhi, the very talented singer was discovered by actor Motilal. After making way to Bollywood, Mukesh first rose to fame with Raj Kapoor's 'Andaz' in 1949.

His song 'Kai Baar Yuhi Dekha Hai' from the film 'Rajnigandha,' won Mukesh his first National Film Award in 1974.

This was followed by four big wins in 1976 at the Filmfare Awards; amongst which the most notable was 'Kabhi Kabhie Mere Dil Mein,' the title track from 'Kabhie Kabhie.'

Mukesh succumbed to a heart attack on August 27, 1976 in Detroit, where he went to perform in a concert. (ANI)
