Kavita Krishnamurthy was so scolded for this song that tears were not stopping from her eyes?

Today is Kavita Krishnamurthy's birthday. In the 1980-90s, he gave many hit songs to the film industry. Kavita Krishnamurthy had amazing variety in her singing. He also sang a song which became an amazing hit but for that Manna Dey scolded him severely. Read this interesting story.

Kavita Krishnamurthi Birthday: The year was 1994. Director Rajeev Rai was making the film- Mohra. The film featured veteran actors like Akshay Kumar, Sunil Shetty, Raveena Tandon, Naseeruddin Shah, Paresh Rawal. The music was by Viju Shah. There was a song in this film – Tu cheez badi hai mast-mast. This song was written by Anand Bakshi and the voice was given by Kavita Krishnamurthy. This song became an amazing hit. At that time, this song was playing at number one in all the countdown programs of film music. Kavita Krishnamurthy was very happy with this success. To share this happiness she went to Manna Dey. Manna Dey was like a father to Kavita Krishnamurthy. Manna Dey and Hemant Kumar helped Kavita Krishnamurthy a lot in her initial days. Kavita used to sing a lot in the live programs of these two legendary artists.

After the death of Kavita Krishnamurthy's father in 1974, Manna Dey and Hemant Kumar raised her exactly like their own daughter. So it happened that Kavita Krishnamurthy told Manna Dey that the song sung by her was going number one in the chartbusters. Manna Dey asked- Which song? Kavita Krishnamurthy said- You are a big thing, very cool. On hearing this, Manna da got angry. Manna Da was very careful about the lyrics in his songs. He was angry as to why Kavita said 'yes' to a song with such light lyrics. Manna da continued speaking angrily, while Kavita Krishnamurthy's tears started flowing. Manna Dey even said in anger that you have insulted women by singing this song. Despite being a woman, why didn't you think before singing such a song? Not even a single word came out of Kavita Krishnamurthy's mouth. She kept crying continuously. Later she quietly left from there without saying anything. You will be surprised to know that even though the lyrics of this song were light, the beginning of this song was based on the pure classical raga Bhimpalasi.

Even before this, Kavita had received a severe scolding.

Perhaps Kavita Krishnamurthy had been scolded so severely once more. His story is also very interesting. It was the day of Vijayadashami. The poem is about Krishnamurthy's childhood. The idol of Durga ji was to be immersed. Kavita Krishnamurthy's name was Sharda at that time. Sharda was given strict instructions that she should not go for Yamuna immersion from Kali Bari. Kavita Krishnamurthy's childhood was spent in Delhi only. Well, all the children of the neighborhood were going for idol immersion. Sharda and her brother also boarded the truck without informing the family. People from every corner of Delhi had come to immerse the idol in Yamuna. There was a lot of crowd. By the time the immersion took place it was late. There was chaos at home. Sharda's family started questioning everyone in the neighbourhood. A neighbor told that he saw both the children going in the truck. Only then did Sharda's family get some relief.

But the twist in the story came when both the children returned home. While going for immersion, Sharda screamed so much on the way that she almost choked. Got scolded a lot on this matter. Mother said that now you will not be able to sing for four days. What will you tell Guruji if he comes to teach? His dedication towards music is also visible in this scolding. Apart from this, once in her childhood, Kavita Krishnamurthy took a puff of cigarette while looking at everyone. After this, he coughed so much that he swore that he would never do it again.

When Kavita Krishnamurthy met Lata ji for the first time

Kavita 'shifted' to Mumbai to pursue a career in playback singing. In Mumbai itself, when Amin Sayani heard Kavita Krishnamurthy for the first time, he asked her mother whether she wanted to earn a lot of money by making this girl sing. Got a straight answer - If this girl sings well then the money will come automatically. This girl considers Lata Mangeshkar as her God. It wants 'perfection', not money. After hearing this reply, Amin Sayani sent Kavita Krishnamurthy to the well-known musician C. Ramachandra. After listening to the poem, C. Ramchandra said – Son, you sing well but come to me after ten years. You are too young to learn from me right now. Kavita was sad that day. This is about the time when Kavita Krishnamurthy's college was running.

Then something happened that Hemant Kumar sent Kavita Krishnamurthy to Manna Da. Kavita Krishnamurthy's series of stage shows with Manna da also started. It was just a few days after this. Hemant Kumar called Kavita Krishnamurthy and asked what she was doing the next day. The next day was Kavita's college. But Hemant Kumar made Kavita bunk the college and called Rajkamal Studio. When Kavita reached there the next day, Hemant Da was already there. He taught Tagore songs to Kavita. That means a little rehearsal was done.

This was the era when singers had to sing live with musicians. Everything was set. It seemed like everyone was waiting for someone. After some time the door of the studio opened and Lata Mangeshkar came inside. Kavita ji got scared after seeing Lata ji in front of her. This was natural also. Then Hemant Da told Kavita that she had to sing those two lines only with Lata ji. Kavita Krishnamurthy has sung the first song in front of the mic with Lata ji. Even today, this seems like a dream to Kavita Krishnamurthy.
