K L Saigal
Did K. L. Saigal smoke?: Yes
Did K. L. Saigal drink liquor?: Yes
K. L. Saigal once had a place with Jalandhar, Punjab yet he was conceived and raised in the territory of Jammu and Kashmir.
His mother was a religious woman and regularly took him to religious occasions, where he could get familiar with some feeling of devotion, in the wake of tuning in to Bhajans, Kirtans, and Shabads.
At the age of twelve, he has discussed a ‘Meera Bhajan’ at the court of Maharaja, Pratap Singh, of Jammu and Kashmir. Afterward, when his dad came to think about this, he got extremely baffled as he wanted his child to focus on concentrates rather than singing.
After getting drawn nearer by his master, Parashuram Nagar, Saigal’s dad enabled him to assume the job of Sita in the nearby Ramleela Function of Jammu.
At an exceptionally youthful age, he dropped out of his school and began filling in as Railway timekeeper to win some cash for himself.
After couple of years, he relinquished his profession as a Railway timekeeper and went to Shimla, Himachal Pradesh, to function as a theater craftsman at the Amateur Dramatics Club-The Gaiety Theatre.
Along with being a theater craftsman, he likewise functioned as a sales rep at the Remington Typewriter Company in Shimla, yet following couple of years, because of some reason, he left that activity and moved to Kanpur, Uttar Pradesh, where he functioned as a saree salesman.
In the mid 1930s, he got related with an individual named Mehrchand Jain, with whom he moved to Calcutta and began performing in various mehfil-e-mushaira as an incipient singer.
His local music chief, Harishchandra Bali, presented him to Rai Chand Boral, the Music Director and Composer of the New Theater and to B. N. Sircar, Owner of the New Theater at Calcutta.
After a few suggestions from Boral, B. N. Sircar procured Saigal in his film studio at an agreement of 200 rupees (INR) per month.
His initial three movies Mohabbat Ke Aansoo (1932), Zinda Lash (1932), and Subah Ka Sitara (1932) were not brought any accomplishment at his truck and demonstrated to have flopped.
His fourth film-Puran Bhagat (1933) demonstrated to be a monstrous hit, and four bhajans, which were sung by him, have won the hearts of the audience.
It was a platitude that it was a direct result of K L Saigal, that Ghazals of the renowned writer, Mirza Ghalib, were resuscitated in the period of mid 1930s.
Once, Lata Mangeshkar said that she had left with the two unfulfilled wishes of her life. One was singing a melody with Saigal and other was singing for the amazing actor, Dilip Kumar.
Many artists, for example, Mukesh, Kishore Kumar, Mohammed Rafi, and numerous others have begun there singing vocation by emulating the voice of K L Saigal and later built up his very own style of singing. Here is the melody, which was initially sung by Mukesh yet seems like Saigal’s voice.
As a youngster, Lata Mangeshkar was affirmed to have said that she needed to wed K.L. Saigal subsequent to seeing his presentation in the film Chandidas (1934).
In the year 1935, he assumed the most encouraging job of his acting profession in the film ‘Devdas’, in which he assumed the lead job and carried tremendous force to his character. One of his melodies from the film ‘Balam Aaye Baso Moray Man Mein’ turned into the prominent tune all through the country.
Instead of being a Non-Bengali individual, he figured out how to speak Bangla as any Bengali would have spoken and acted in a few Bengali movies, for example, ‘Jeeban Maran’, ‘Didi’, ‘Parichay’, and numerous more.
After tuning in to his tunes, the famous writer, Rabindra Nath Tagore, considered him as a first-ever non-Bengali artist to sing his tunes. Here is the video of Rabindrasangeet, ‘Burger joint Seshe Ghumerd,’ sung by K L Saigal.
After picking up accomplishment in the Bengali Cinema, he moved to Mumbai to work with Ranjit Movietone and acted in movies Bhakta Surdas (1942) and Tansen (1943).
In the year 1944, he worked in the film My Sister, and his melody ‘Do Naina Matware’ and ‘Ae Qatib-e-Taqdeer Mujhe Itna Bata De’ again spread the enchantment of his voice in everywhere throughout the country.
Once, his grandson had referenced that Saigal was not unreasonably much dependent on liquor as individuals around then used to gossip about it. Truth be told, he began drinking liquor, since somebody recommended him to attempt it as a medication to get recuperated from his spinal pain and sore feet.
Some of his most prominent tunes ‘Ek Bangla Bane Nyara’ (1937), ‘Poke Dil Hi Toot Gaya’ (1947), ‘Gham Diye Mustaqil’ (1946), and ‘So Ja Rajkumari’ are as yet prevalent among music darlings and youthful generation.
After finishing his last film, Parvana (1946), he needed to leave from the film business and needed to get settled at his tribal spot Jalandhar, Punjab. On 18 January 1947, subsequent to experiencing incessant disease, this first genius of the film business and a particular on-screen character left this world. Here is the video, which educates us concerning the whole voyage of his life.
