usic can el­e­vate any­one’s mood, and for ac­tor Ashish Chowdhry (left), it is the magic of leg­endary singer Kishore Ku­mar’s (right) voice that lifts his spir­its every­time. “I am a die-hard fan of Kishore da. No mat­ter where I am or what I am do­ing, his songs have the power to make me feel happy. I re­mem­ber, even dur­ing col­lege, I used to hear his songs. That was the time when most of us were crazy for hard rock songs. But I can never be bored of him,” says Ashish, adding, “Ghun­groo ki Tarah (Chor Machaye Shor) and Musafir Hoon Yaaron (Parichay) are my all time favourite tracks and among his movies, I re­ally like his act­ing in Pa­dosan (1968). I think he was a re­mark­able artist.” The 37-year-old ac­tor, who is fond of singing as well, cred­its his fa­ther for his love for Kishore Ku­mar. “My fa­ther was very fond of mu­sic and he could have been a good play­back singer had he pur­sued his pas­sion. I am not as good as him,” he says. If ever given a chance to work in a re­make of a Kishore Ku­mar film, Ashish says, “It will have to be Chalti Ka Naam Gaadi (1958).”
