Date of Birth 22 July 1923

Mukesh Chand Mathur -  Mukesh, was a playback singer of Hindi movies. He, alongside Mohammad Rafi, Manna Dey, and Kishore Kumar, made great impact on the Hindi film industry. Amongst the numerous nominations and awards he won, his song "Kai Baar Yuhi Dekha Hai" from film Rajnigandha (1973) won him the National Film Award for Best Male Playback Singer. Mukesh is also popular as being the voice of legendary actor Raj Kapoor. The music teacher who came home to teach Mukesh's sister, Sundar Pyari, found a pupil in Mukesh who would listen from the adjoining room. Mukesh worked briefly for the Department of Public Works. He experimented with voice recordings during his employment in Delhi and gradually developed his singing abilities.


Motilal, a distant relative observed Mukesh, when he sang at his sister's wedding and  took him to Mumbai and arranged for singing lessons by Pandit Jagannath Prasad. Mukesh was offered a role in a Hindi film, Nirdosh (1941). His first song was "Dil Hi Bujha Hua Ho To" as an actor-singer for Nirdosh.
