Kishore Kumar’s son Amit on possibility of a Madhubala biopic: Why not? It should be made

In a recent interview with ETimes, Kishore Kumar's son Amit Kumar discussed numerous topics, including his father's four marriages and the biography of his father's second wife, iconic actress Madhubala.

Regarding the biopic Amit stated "Why not? sabka hota hai biopic (everyone has a biopic now). It should be made." He even said his father's biography seems to be in the process, adding that they have "started scribbling."

Amit also denied any rumors surrounding Anurag Basu directing the film and provided no additional details. The singer also revealed that if they create the biography, they would do so through their own production company. “Jo humko maloom hai, kissi aur ko pata nahin hai. (What we know, others don’t know),” he added.

The interviewer questioned Amit regarding his father's four marriages. Amit said he never really questioned his father on the subject. He added that he was never upset about it, stating that "it was his (Kishore’s) personal life."

Amit is the son of Kishore's first wife, Ruma Guha Thakurta, with whom he was married from 1950 until 1958. Ruma was the niece of legendary director Satyajit Ray, who also appeared in two of his Bengali films, Abhijan and Ganashatru. She also appeared in Dilip Kumar's film Jwar Bhata. She died at the age of 84 at her Kolkata residence in 2019.

From 1960 until 1969, Kishore married his second wife, the legendary actress Madhubala. From 1976 to 1987, he was married to Yogeeta Bali, a well-known actress. Between 1980 and 1987, he was married four times, to actress Leena Chandavarkar.

Kishore was a legendary singer and actor. The artist has songs across several languages, including Bengali, Marathi, Assamese, Gujarati, Malayalam, Bhojpuri, Kannada, and plenty more. Kishore is also known for his iconic songs such as Chala Jata Hoon, Roop Tera Mastana, Mere Sapnon Ki Rani, and many more.

The singer was a popular actor who first featured in the 1946 film Shikari and went on to perform in films such as Bombay Ka Chor, Naukari, Aasha, Padosan, and plenty more.
