Tribute By: Prom Kumari & Madhukar Mehta

I have chosen Pradeep Kumar as the actor for my first tribute and I am happy to have Prom Kumari ji sing with me for this classic oldie composed by one of my most favorite composers, Sachin Dev Burman. I love the simplicity in his compositions, yet they are such catchy tunes as we sing his melodies after so many years.

Pradeep Kumar (04 Jan 1925 – 27 Oct 2001) was active in the Hindi film industry from 1952 to 1987. Born to an orthodox Brahmin family in West Bengal and named Sital Batabyal declared his decision to pursue acting career when he turned 17. Despite his father’s disapproval, Pradeep started acting on stage. A renowned film maker, Debaki Bose spotted him and cast him in his first Bengali Film, Alaknanda in 1947.

Pradeep moved to Mumbai and found a job in Filmistan Studio. He improved his Hindi and learnt Urdu for creating a favorable impression for his first Hindi film, Anand Math (1952). His career took off rapidly and landed in successful movies like Anarkali (1953) and Nagin (1954). While he was quite a success during the 50’s actresses and movies but during the 60’s he made films with Meena Kumari but not a single movie was made with then popular actresses like Sadhana, Saira Banu and Sharmila Tagore.

Pradeep Kumar is known for his roles as the Emperor or a Prince that suited him so well for royal demeanor and looks, not to overlook his impeccable Urdu. He lived a peaceful life away from the silver screen and died at the age of 76.
