Golden Voices

Mukesh and Raj Kapoor

Celebrating the uniqueness that was Mukesh today. This article does not even attempt to list all of Mukesh’s songs that have made an impression, for there are way too many; it simply celebrates this singer for being who he was with sheer sincerity and goodness resonating in his voice.

Mukesh was the voice of Raj Kapoor and the duo created a stream of legendary hits in films including Anari, Shri 420, Aah, Aag, Awara, Chhalia, Parvarish, Shriman Satyawadi, Jis Desh Mein Ganga Behti Hai, Teesri Kasam, Mera Naam Joker, Sangam, Bawre Nain, Dil Hi Toh Hai, to name a few.
