Sudesh Bhonsle - Marathisanmaan
Surely, I could not learn all of them given the shortage of time. And that's why, unlike in my other shows, you see me looking at times at the written page on stage. Have you been enjoying the performances? Even before the first show was halfway through, I knew the audiences were having a great time.

You have been always been identified with Amitabh Bachchan, isn't it?
True, especially after the Chumma Chumma song in the movie Hum. After the song was recorded inmany people including Jayaji Amitabh's wife Jaya Bachchan thought Amitabhji himself had sung the song.

But during the previous recordings, he okayed the song after it had been recorded. While Chumma Chumma was recorded, he was in the recording theatre.
It was a very unnerving experience. Many of your fans think of Chumma Chumma as your first song. When was the first occasion you sung for him? The Chumma Chumma song was composed by Laxmikant-Pyarelal, who also composed the music for Ajooba, which was being made around the same time.
They had watched me perform on stage imitating Amitabhji. And they got the idea to persuade me to sing in Amitabhji's voice. Amitabhji had to approve of the songs. And he did so heartily, telling me with mischief in his voice, 'I don't remember exactly when I sang this song. This is news to me. Who was the composer?

Many of my college mates.
I was into painting and singing from my teen years.
I guess I was inspired by my father, a painter, and my mother, a classical singer. I used to do imitations for the fun of it but my friends took me seriously, especially my imitation of Amitabhji's dialogue in the film Muqaddar Ka Sikander. Encouraged by them, I began to get the tapes of his dialogue delivery in films like Deewar and Lawaaris. Soon, I was imitating him on the college stage, and word spread.
Some people in the movie industry caught my act. Then I started following his singing style after hearing him sing in the film Silsila. My imitation caught the attention of Music Makers, a very big band in Mumbai in the s. I got a lot of encouragement from the band's Ashok Kumar Saraf who is today my father-in-law. And through Music Makers, I got to know Kishoreda Kishore Kumar because it was his band too Music Makers accompanied the legendary singer at his concerts.
One thing to lead to another, and soon Ajooba and Hum came up. When I say I have been around as an entertainer for 25 years, I also include my stage work singing at Kishore Kumar concerts. Who has been the greatest inspiration for you as a singer and performer? I have performed in many musical evenings headlining Kishore Kumar.
I would open his concert singing a few of his songs and occasionally those of the singer K L Saigal that Kishoreda just adored. Saigal was his favourite singer. What did you get most from Kishore Kumar? I learned a lot about spontaneity, how he reacted with the audience, and how he would send the audience home satisfied.
I watched his body language. And most of all, my self confidence grew a lot because of the encouragement he gave me.
