A Salute to Mahendra Kapoor

Mahendra Kapoor passed this weekend. He was most well known for his patriotic songs, and credited Mohammad Rafi as the inspiration behind his singing career. Listen to some of his songs at this link. But before you go, here is his most well known song, Mere Desh Ki Dharti from Upkar (1967), starring Manoj Kumar, Asha Parekh, Prem Chopra and others.

Aww that's very sad to know. He sang some real nice songs of HFM. My favorite being chalo ek baar phir se from Gumraah.

May peace be with him.
