I don’t know why they are not releasing those songs. It would have been great if they released it.”
Recalling the time when music bank started, Kumar Sanu said, “Gulshan Ji (Gulshan Kumar: Founder of T-Series) was creating a music bank that time. He used to get atleast 10-20 songs recorded by every music director for the music bank. He had established a system where a producer comes, chooses a song from the music bank and takes it. It was like shopping.”
He added, “So, when Gulshan Ji made music bank, I sang several songs for him.” “Recordings used to take place on a regular basis. We had no idea when and where or which film the song will be getting used for,” said the singer.
R.D. Burman passed away in 1994, leaving a void in the Indian music industry. However, his music continues to inspire and influence many budding musicians even today, and Kumar Sanu’s renditions of his songs are still cherished by music lovers all over the world.
