This notable legend was conceived in a Bengali Family at Bhagalpur, Bihar.

His dad, Kunjlal Ganguly, was an attorney by calling.

His mom, Gouri Devi, was a homemaker who had a place with an exceptionally rich Bengali family.

He achieved his Law degree from Presidency College of the University of Calcutta (presently, Kolkata).

He was a law understudy, yet he was not intrigued to make his profession in the legal executive; as he constantly needed to work in the film business as a specialist.

His first stretch in the film business was as a lab right hand at the Bombay Studio where he labored for a long time.

His first motion picture as an on-screen character was Jeevan Naiya. He turned into an entertainer in this motion picture by some coincidence; as he supplanted Najm-ul-Hassan (who was the principal decision for the job) because of certain reasons.

Himanshu Rai was the individual who offered him his first reprieve and constrained him to enter the film world as an entertainer.

With his brilliant singing and charming execution, he turned into the principal saint in the Indian Film Industry whose film Kismet, 1943 crossed one crore sum in the cinema world.

Well known by the name Dadamoni, which means gem of a senior brother.

He is noted for his gigantic exhibitions in different movies, for example, Achhut Kannya (1936), Bandhan (1940), and Kismet (1943).

Afterward, he proceeded to turn into a prominent film maker and it was Ashok Kumar who had acquainted two another notorious characters with the Indian Cinema: Dev Anand (Ziddi, 1948) and Madhubala (Mahal, 1949).

His last motion picture as an entertainer was Aankhon Mein Tum Ho (1997).

During the 1980s, he began facilitating Hum Log (India first cleanser show) and turned into an outstanding face on TV screens.

He was additionally known for his singing, he sang a great deal of melodies including Choodi Main Laaya Anmol Re (Achhut Kanya, 1936), Main Ban Ki Chidiya (Achhut Kanya, 1936), Dekh Ke Teri Nazar (Howrah Bridge, 1958), Hum Tumhare Hain (Chalti Ka Naam Gaadi, 1958), and the sky is the limit from there.

His tune Rail Gaadi from film Aashirwad (1968) is considered as the principal rap tune of Bollywood.

The entertainer never praised his birthday after 1987; as his more youthful sibling Kishore Kumar kicked the bucket on 13 October 1987 (Ashok Kumar birthday).

During the 2005 Mumbai Floods, Dadamoni lost a significant number of his trophies from his godown.

Aside from his effective acting profession, he was an incredible homeopathy expert and an energetic painter.

He drew a naked image of his better half, which speaks to his brilliant masterful abilities.

He was viewed as a standout amongst the most adaptable on-screen characters of his time; as he had exceeded expectations in each sort of characters, regardless of whether it was disaster, parody, or sentiment.

Here a discussion with this incredible on-screen character:
