    Search engine Google remembered legendary playback singer Mukesh on his 93rd birth anniversary by creating a special doodle in his honour. The doodle featured a smiling portrait of Mukesh and a small sketch of Raj Kapoor-Nargis Dutt in the background.

    Known as Kapoor's voice, Mukesh went on to give superhit songs for the late actor like 'Pyar Hua Ikrar Hua', 'Mere Toote Huye Dil Se', 'Dost Dost Na Raha Pyar Pyar Na Raha', 'Kisi Ki Muskurahaton Pe Ho Nisar', 'Awara Hoon' and 'Jaane Kahan Gaye Woh Din'.


    Born in Delhi, Mukesh initially worked briefly for the Department of Public Works. He experimented with voice recordings during his employment in Delhi and gradually developed his singing abilities and also his musical instrumental skills.

    His first song was 'Dil Hi Bujha Hua Ho To' as an actor-singer for Nirdosh in 1941.

    He got his break as a playback singer for actor Motilal in 1945 with the film 'Pehli Nazar' with music composed by Anil Biswas and lyrics written by Aah Sitapuri. The first song that he sang for a Hindi film was 'Dil Jalta Hai To Jalne De".

    Mukesh created his own singing style with the help of music director Naushad Ali.

    Naushad gave him songs for the film 'Andaz'. Initially, Mukesh was the ghost voice of Dilip Kumar in this movie and Mohammed Rafi sang for Raj Kapoor. He delivered many hits for Naushad in films like Anokhi Ada and Mela.

    In 1974, Mukesh received National Film Award for best male playback singer for the song 'Kai Baar Yuhi Dekha Hai' from Rajnigandha.

    The veteran singer died of a heart attack on 27 August 1976 in Detroit, Michigan, US, where he had gone to perform in a concert.
