He might not have been as successful as his Dad, but Dad more than made up. Tonite, he pays a tribute.
South Central Railways, as part of its 40th annual celebrations, is organising a musical concert by Nitin Mukesh, on 15th October, at Rail Kalarang.
Nitin Mukesh is the son of the legendary late Mukesh. He trained in music under various teachers like Pt. Jagannath Mishra, Ustad Faiyyaz Ahmed Khan and Chhote Iqbal, the first of whom had also groomed his father.
Nitin got his first break in a modest Kishore Sahu film, Dhuan Ki Lakeer (1974), in a duet with Vani Jayaram, "Teri Jheel Se Gehri Aankhon Mein", composed by music director Shyamji Ghanshyamji. However, Nitin’s first release as a full–fledged singer was Sabse Bada Sukh (1972 / Salil Chowdhary).
He got attention on a large scale in 1978–79 with his 3 hit duets with Lata Mangeshkar, "Main Kaise Usse Pasand Karoon" (Satyam Shivam Sundaram), "Gapuji Gapuji Gum Gum" (Trishul) and "Aja Re Aaja Re O Mere Dilbar Aaja" (Noorie).
After the decline of his career as a playback singer, Nitin largely did devotional albums and shows. He has many concerts to his credit, some also in memory of his father.
