Happy birthday Rajesh Roshan. The famous composer celebrates his 67th birthday today, May 24. Known for his music in films such as Baton Baton Mein, Do Aur Do Paanch, Kaho Na…Pyaar Hai and KaabilRoshan is the brother of actor Rakesh Roshan and uncle of Hrithik Roshan.
He got his big break in the film industry with Mehmood’s Kunwara Baap when he was only 18 years old. Since then he has scored over 100 films, many of which are remembered for their melodies.
On this special day today, here are some of his best romantic tunes:
Julie’s Dil Kya Kare:
Who can forget the songs from this 1975 blockbuster? Julia has several chartbusters, but this Kishore Kumar track is a class of its own. Over the years, several singers, like Shaan, have created their own rendition of this song. The hit track was also recreated for the 2017 film Hrithik Roshan Kaabil. Julia also won Rajesh Roshan his first Filmfare Award for Best Music Director.
Suniye Kahiye from Stick Stick Mein:
This romantic duo of Kishore Kumar and Asha Bhosle remains a favorite decades after its release. Part of 1979 Stick Stick Meinthe song showcased the slowly developing romance between Tina Munim and Amol Palekar.
Na Tum Jaano Na Hum from Kaho Naa… Pyaar Hai: Kaho Naa… Pyaar Hai is praised for launching Hrithik Roshan’s career. But, the 2000 director also remains popular for giving music lovers some evergreen Lucky Ali hits. The singer’s moving voice has found many fans, and his song Na Tum Jaano Na Hum remains a hit romance track to this day.
Ek Pal Ka Jeena from Kaho Naa…Pyaar Hai: Lucky Ali and Rajesh Roshan gave another super hit with this track. Hrithik Roshan’s dance moves made the song a crowd favorite. Kaho Naa…Pyaar Hai won Roshan the second Filmfare award of his career.
Dil Kyun Yeh Mera from Kites:
At Hrithik Roshan’s kites may not have been able to weave its magic at the box office, but the film’s romantic bits are still hummed along by music lovers everywhere. The moving voice of KK and the haunting score of Dil Kyun Yeh Mera remain etched in the minds of the public to this day.
I wish Rajesh Roshan a great year ahead.
