Statues of Kishore Kumar, SD Burman in Kolkata soon
If you're a fan of Kishore Kumar or SD Burman, you might want to visit Kolkata next as a fan club is going to install the statues of the music maestros in Kolkata next week. Kumar's son, Amit Kumar, would inaugurate the statues on October 22, in presence of Kolkata Municipal Corporation's Mayor-in-Council Debasish Kumar, said Secretary of the club, Sudipta Chanda. Here's more.
The statues will join RD Burman on Southern Avenue-Keyatala Road
Earlier, the fan club set up a bust of RD Barman on the Southern Avenue-Keyatala Road connector in Kolkata. The two statues would be installed right opposite to RD Burman's bust, Chanda said. "While SD Burman had once lived at Southend Park in Dhakuria area, Kishore Kumar also shared a close connection with this metropolis as he married Kolkata's Ruma Guha Thakurta," he said.
Amit is thrilled about the new statues
Chanda added that Amit too lived in Kolkata for a few years. In a written message to his fan club, Amit, also a popular singer, on his part, said he was thrilled by the initiative. Amit said he misses all three legendary singers. "It's good to know that SD Burman and Kishore Kumar would be joining Pancham da in Kolkata soon," he said.
Burman-Kishore Da's songs are still hummed every now and then
Amit feels the place with all three statues will be a must-visit for all music lovers. We think so too! SD Burman and Kishore Da were known to have shared an endearing relationship. The two had delivered many evergreen songs, including 'Qusoor aapka huzoor aapka' (Bahaar-1951), 'Dukhi man mere sun mera kahna (Funtoosh-1956)', and 'Ek ladki bheegi bhagi si (Chalti Ka Naam Gaadi 1958)'.Share this timeline
