Hemant Kumar Never Forgave Salil Choudhary Shocking Untold Story: How Singer-Composer Hemant Kumar Fell Out With Composer Salil Choudhary

It was all about the late   poet-lyricist Yogesh’s most  famous   song Kahin dur jab  din dhal jaye.

The original Bengali version of these immortal words were sung  by  Hemant Kumar Mukherjee. The song  was  called Amay Proshno Kore Neel Dhrubo Tara.

Says a  source  close to  Hemant Kumar, “Since Hemantda had sung the  original  Amay Proshno Kore Neel Dhrubo Tara for composer Salilda(composer Salil Chowdhary) and since Salilda  was  Hemantda’s discovery,  Hemantda presumed  the Hindi  version  of the song  would  also go to him by right.”

To his disbelief and  shock Hemant Kumar discovered that   Kahin dur jab din dhal jaye the  Hindi version  of   Amay Proshno Kore Neel Dhrubo Tara    was  given to Mukesh to sing .

Says  the source  in the know, “Hemantada was shocked  beyond belief. Salilda was Hemantda’s discovery. It happened one day when Salilda walked  into  Hemantda’s  home and  played some  tunes. Hemantda  didn’t like any  of Salilda’s tunes.  Salilda left. But came  back to play one last song. This time Hemantda was bowled over and he  immediately agreed to sing it for Salilda. The song was   Runner written  by  Bengal’s  well-known poet Sukanto. That’s how Salilda’s innings in  Bengal started. And then to have Hemantda replaced by Mukesh  was unacceptable to Hemantda. Things were  never the same between  them.”
