Kumar Sanu, The Singer With Healing Powers

Kumar Sanu’s charismatic voice has enticed generations of Bollywood Music lovers. He got his first major break when Gulshan Kumar along with music directors Nadeem and Shravan gave him a chance to sing most of the songs for the 1990 film, ‘Aashiqui’. The songs were recorded earlier for an album and then the movie was made around the songs. The songs aired everywhere, including the Chitrahaar show on Doordarshan and were the biggest hits of the decade. Enjoy Sanu’s melodies on GaanPehchaana.
