The first selection for today is a duet by Kumar Sanu & Anuradha Paudwal (who had a lovely voice all her own) that I have always thought would make a great first dance at a wedding due to the sweeping music & romance filled lyrics.The second song is my personal favorite, You can almost feel Kumar Sanu channeling Kishoreda in the song that is so wonderfully sweet & heartbreakingly sad all at the same time.
Mangeshkar, the great playback singer star of Bollywood dating back to the ‘40s, has dubbed in the singing voices of every star from Mumtaz to Aishwarya Rai.
