I am as BUSY as EVER! - From Screen Magazine

Rajiv Vijayakar Posted: Aug 12, 2011 at 1825 hrs IST

The living room of his flat in a Mumbai suburb is crammed with cheque-books, suitcases and dozens of trophies hung, placed or lying everywhere, topped by the framed Padma Shri.
Shanu Kumar Bhattacharya, known to the world as Kumar Sanu, is languorously seated on a chair in a Tee and shorts, unceasingly answering his cell-phone and speaking in Bengali for at least half of the 30 minutes we spend with him. He has to catch an early morning flight for a show, he tells you.

In the same breath, the man complains that the media is ignoring him and also that he is not bothered about that. "Hum news ke peeche nahin bhaagte. You have come to meet me because I have recorded a song for Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Rowdy Rathore. But I am still singing a song or two every day," he says.

Sanu claims that he has recently sung or recorded for 40 Hindi films. Asked to name a few, he mentions The Weekend directed by Tinu Verma, Zindagi Ho Tum and Touch. He adds that he has completed an album called Tu Hai Ek Gulab on Venus. "The promo on Internet has got them lakhs of hits!" he says. "I am doing two more albums."

Kumar Sanu is also recording frequently in the South and for Bhojpuri and Bengali films. He has sung in a lot of Marathi, Oriya, Assamese, Nepali and Gujarati movies and in a Marathi bhajan album. He names music composers Ashok Patki from Mumbai and South composers M.M.Kreem, Devaa, Raj Koti, Hamsalekha, Chakri and Vande Mataram Srinivas.

He has business interests in Dubai. "I am settled there with my family," he says. "I am here for about 20 days every month as my work is here." Why did he shift there? "There were reasons," he says mysteriously. "Mumbai is not safe anymore."

How did Rowdy Rathore happen? "As soon as Sajid-Wajid composed the tune and made Sanjay Leela Bhansali listen to it, Bhansali just said, `Kumar Sanu'," he declares. "I am singing for him again after our mega-hit Aankhon ki gustakhiyaan maaf ho from Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam and of course Khamoshi - The Musical earlier. I had not sung much for Sajid-Wajid earlier, but they are very good and have come up with a fantastic song. Faaiz Anwar, who wrote my songs like Dil Hai Ke Manta Nahin's title-track and Imtihaan, has written the lyrics and I am singing after many years for Akshay Kumar. Akshay was so happy that he made them increase my portion in the duet and stated that my voice had the same magic as in Churake dil mera from Main Khiladi Tu Anari 17 years ago."

Kumar Sanu's reign at the box-office came after six long years of struggle. For those who came in late, Sanu had started his career in 1984 with a multi-singer song for R.D.Burman's Yeh Desh (1984) that starred Jeetendra, Zeenat Aman and Kamal Haasan, significant because Kishore Kumar and Amit Kumar were both active then. "I sang my lines for Kamal Haasan. I was on a visit to Mumbai then." The singer was billed as Shanu Kumar Bhattacharya in the song.

When he arrived in Mumbai finally, "I started my career with Shatrughan Sinha's home production Aandhiyaan that was never completed. It was a song to be enacted by him and was composed by Jagjit Singh. Later I recorded for Amitabh Bachchan in both Kalyanji-Anandji's Jaadugar and Rajesh Roshan's Insaniyat. Jagjitsaab again called me to sing for Rajesh Khanna in Khudai (1990)."

But with Khudai not getting a proper release and Khanna's career on a fadeout, Sanu, a clone of Khanna's pet voice Kishore Kumar, never formed a team with the actor, despite some more songs in Wafaa (2009). But Sanu's career zoomed after the 1990 Aashiqui, which he got because he had recorded cover-version albums of Kishore Kumar for T-Series. "Kishoreda had heard me sing Jab dard nahin tha seene mein (Anurodh) from one of the volumes and expressed a desire to meet me. But somehow that never happened."

In the '90s, Sanu sang for almost every composer from Naushad, Kalyanji-Anandji, Laxmikant-Pyarelal and Pt.Hridaynath Mangeshkar to all the younger, big and small names. The youngest composers included Himesh Reshammiya ("I sang a lot of songs for him and he is a superb composer") and Vishal-Shekhar.

"My best work was with Nadeem-Shravan, Anu Malik, Jatin-Lalit, Anand-Milind and also Rajesh Roshan and Bappi Lahiri," he tells you. "I sang at least one hit for almost every star — Dharmendra, Jeetendra and Vinod Khanna included, and several hits for all the Khans, Akshay Kumar, Rishi Kapoor and many more." For the record again, the youngest stars for whom he lent his voice include Hrithik Roshan and Shahid Kapoor in their debut films.

He dismisses our statement that his name sold film soundtracks whenever his songs dominated. "What is more important is that my songs became the most popular ones in so many soundtracks where others had more songs!" he crows. He also scoffs at the idea that his career could have lasted even longer with a team-up with a star: "I preferred to be more versatile. I never changed my voice for any star, but concentrated on the needs of the song."

Does he miss those times? "Of course, I do," he says instantly. "But I never went and asked around for work then and I don't do that now. Can you imagine that Don was remade but I was not called for the re-creation of Khaike paan Banaraswala?"

So what does he think of today's music? "No music director, singer or lyricist has an identity any more. Everyone sounds like each other and songs are 15-day sensations till the next so-called hit comes along," He says. "There is too much orientation towards Western music, and lyrics like Munni, Sheila and now DK Bose, which coming from Aamir Khan, is a shocker. There are very few songs that connect. I loved the title-tracks of Guzaarish and Kal Ho Naa Ho and Chand sifarish from Fanaa was fantastic."

Does he intend to compose music again after Utthaan six years back? "That was a film," he says. "But I have always been composing, even for albums. That's my shouq, not my main profession. I also acted in just one Bengali film. I have a production company and I have even made two serials."

How does he look back on his long journey? "I am very, very happy! Socha nahin tha utnaa diya ooparwale ne!" he declares.

So High Solo

Published in Screen many years ago:

So high Solo

Our present singers have been quite unlucky in one respect - theyhave musically grown up in the era of duets. And however good a duet may be compositionally, it cannot match the solo in the challenges it offers to the singer. In a solo, good, bad or indifferent, it is the singer who has to shoulder the complete responsibility for the eventual calibre and appeal of the song.

Among the male singers of the au courant generation, only Abhijeet has been lucky enough to get a consistent series of solos. But the other Bhattacharya - Kumar Sanu - has been at his best in solos too, even if attention has been invariably focussed on his duets.

After all, the song for which Sanu swept every award in showbiz was Ek ladki do dekha to aisa lagaa (1942-A Love Story/1994), with which R.D.Burman, while mentally composing for Kishore Kumar, paradoxically made Sanu evolve beyond the frontiers of a Kishore clone! The same film had Sanu also radiate excellence in Kuchh na kaho (his version proving more evocative than even Lata's) and Rooth na jaana.

The year in which Sanu made his first impact - 1990 - was also marked by three stand-out solos - the sad, solo version of the Rajesh Roshan ace Jab koi baat bigad jaaye (Jurm) and the twin Aashiqui numbers, Ab tere bin jee lenge hum and Ek sanam chahiye aashiqui ke liye.

In the pre- 1942-A Love Story phase, he delivered a cavalcade of hits with Nadeem-Shravan, with very few noteworthy solos like Sochenge tumhein pyar (Deewana) and Aashiqui mein har aashiq (Dil Ka Kya Kasoor), but it was with Bappi Lahiri and Jatin-Lalit that he was at his best even then, for these composers made him open up and sing full-throatedly even before he evolved his throw with that Pancham swar song, something at which he is unequalled among today's male singers.
I remember hearing Sanu vocalize Bahut kathin hai dagar panghat ki, a typical Prakash Mehra song, in Bappi's Zindagi Ek Juaa, in which Sanu sounded almost as rich and vibrant as Kishore Kumar - and uncannily like him, even granting the clone factor. In the remaining songs of that 1992 film, Sanu was in superb form too, singing Kabhi kuchh khoya, Dil to dil hai and the title song with a wealth of feeling and depth. In the same year, Jatin Lalit made him exude sweetness in Dil hai mera deewana (Raju Ban Gaya Gentleman) and Hridaynath Mangeshkar's Ek haseen nigaah ka (Maya Memsaab) was yet another feather in his pack, though heaven alone knows why he was made (or allowed) to pronounce haseen with the full `n' sound at the end.

Anu Malik slambanged into the reckoning in 1993, and at intervals, he has given Kumar Sanu some wonderful solos, like Band hothon se, Yeh ujli chandni and Jis din suraj ki pehli kiran (Sir), Tere dar par and Aanewala pal ek sapna hai (Phir Teri Kahani Yaad Aayi), Do baatein ho sakti hai (Imtihaan), Dil mera churaaya kyoon (Akele Hum Akele Tum) and Haan judaai se dartaa hai dil (Kareeb).

Sanu's solo innings in the Jatin-Lalit ambit has always been something special. From Ae kaash ke hum hosh mein (Kabhi Haan Kabhi Naa) and Aankhon mein kya (Khamoshi) to Kehta hai yeh safar (Bada Din, Jab kisiki taraf dil jhukne lage (Pyaar To Hona Hi Tha), Dil hai aisa raahi (Dillagi) and Naraaz savera hai (Sangharsh) has been a singularly melodious lone journey. These J-L songs all rank among the best songs of Kumar Sanu.

Add Nadeem-Shravan's Do dil mil rahe hai (Pardes), which is among the best solos Sanu has ever sung, Viju Shah's Ae kaash kabhi aisa hota (Mohra) and Rajesh Roshan's soulful Yeh jo thode se hai paise (Papa Kahte Hain) and the exhilarating Chand sitaren phool aur khushboo (Kaho Naa… Pyaar Hai) and you know why Sanu should be given more solos to sing with that wonderful vocal punch and emotional expression of his. As he says, "Other singers may be concerned with their own gaayaki. I am concerned with putting the correct emotion." This explains why many a Sanu duet - like the duet version of the Jurm song , or Chhudake daaman (Imtihaan) - is remembered as a solo, till you refresh memory by reading the inlay or discover the female singer while hearing it again! With Sanu, it's always a case of solo, so high.
