Amit Kumar May Give Voice to his Father’s Biopic

If Ranbir Kapoor is playing a character of legendry singer Kishore Kumar, then who can give better voice than Amit Kumar, son of Kishore Kumar. Anurag Basu’s biopic on Kishore Kumar will now have voice of Amit Kumar.

After seeing Amit on a Bengali music reality show, Anurag Basu says

“I was zapped. The older he gets, the more he resembles his father in expression, body language and zest for life. I will definitely get Amit to sing for Ranbir in the film.”

Incidentally, Kishore Kumar’s younger son Sumeet sang a version of Kishore’s Bachna ae haseenon for Ranbir. Now it’s Kishore’s elder son Amit’s turn to sing for the actor.

Anurag is in touch with other members of Kishore Kumar’s family. Sharing his experience with other members, Anurag says

“I was delighted when Leenaji (Chandavarkar) said she was familiar with my work and had full faith that I would do justice to Kishoreda’s biopic.”

The film will cover all aspects of Kishore Kumar, as a singer, actor, writer, composer, husband, father… everything.
