It was 1994 when I first came to Mumbai to go on a musical tour. Before that I used to work in the hotel industry. It was my wife Jyothy who made my dreams come true.
KK, who was speaking in an interview with Hungama, was singing along with popular singer Hariharan at a show in Delhi. Then he encouraged me to move to Mumbai and try as a singer.
I don’t need to know the demands of being a KK singer. However, he did not stop composing songs for albums, which is why he became world famous even during that busy time. He has been so interested in it. He has sung more than 3,500 songs from the album so far.
KK is not a trained classical singer. He went to music school only for a short time and was interrupted by his father. There are many reasons for that.
But KK says he had a lot of question marks from the start. It is enough for me to listen to such a song. I’m not ashamed of this.

He said in an interview that I am blessed. Kishore Kumar was a popular singer in Bollywood during the 1960s. He is mentioned in many places as the inspiration for KK. Kishore Kumar is not a regular musician like KK.
KK has sung many hit songs not only in Hindi but also in Tamil, Telugu, Marathi, Kannada, Bengali, Malayalam, Gujarati and Assamese.
