The success story of Udit Narayan.

Here is the success story of the great indian singer, Udit Narayan.

Just improve pronunciation in Tamil Sir, you are a great Singer.

No image-managed guise, conceit, pretence or airs. Just a whole lot of talent and a musical repertoire carefully shaped over the years - that's
Udit Narayan, the humblest yet the most gifted singer in the Hindi music industry today, well a popular name in south india too.

Like all success stories go, Udit Narayan has a past of sheer toil and hard work preceding him.
Born in a small Nepal-India border town to a farmer father and singer mother, he triggered different hopes and expectations in his parents. While his father willed him to study and choose a steady vocation, his mother believed that singing was what he was cut out for

Udit's own aspirations were obviously music-inclined, and soon after passing out of school,
he joined the Katmandu radio station as a folk singer
and sang in the Mythali language as well as in
Nepalese. But all along, the urge to belong out there in tinsel town was strong.

After about 10 years as a singer with Katmandu radio, in 1978, he received a scholarship in music from the Indian embassy. And that's what triggered his real journey of perseverance and toil.
He moved to Mumbai and trained in classical music at the Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan for close to eight years.

And all along, he approached music directors in the hope of finding the right prospects.
His first break came when music director Rajesh Roshan offered him a small assignment in the film
Unnees Bees, where he was to sing with the legendary Mohammed
, his childhood icon. Udit also sang for R D Burman in the film
Bade Dilwala, but the the assignments being rather small, his work went unnoticed.

Remains the question of his first-big-break. It came when the now established, then struggling
Anand-Milind recommended Udit Narayan's name to filmmaker Mansoor Khan who was on the look out for a fresh voice to suit debutant Aamir Khan in the film
Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak, (Pahla nasha). Udit seemed like the ideal choice and was signed up.
The film went on to become a blockbuster and with it the Udit Narayan had arrived. And like they say, there has been no looking

He continues to record for the most sought after of music directors and with his original and versatile voice delivers a remarkable hit eight out of ten times. With scores of hits, awards and a very rewarding career behind him,
Udit can now sit back and watch the progress of his budding singer-son, Aditya

Vidhu Vinod Chopra's Mission Kashmir, due to hit screens later this month features two mellow duets,
Chupke se sun and Socho ke jheelon ka, in the voices of Udit Narayan and Alka Yagnik. A rollicking Udit is back in 2001 with such hits as
Chori Chori Chupke Chupke, Kasoor and One 2 Ka 4. With strings of chartbusters up his sleeve, it remains to be seen whether the singer weaves his magic this time round as

Udit is a well known name in south india too. He was first introduced in Tamil by the great music director of india, A R Rahman in
Shankar's, Kadhalan, the song, Kadhalikkum pennin. The song was by Udit Narayan and S P
. Then came a string of offers from Tamil, Telugu and Kannada films.
Udit Narayan has worked with most of the music composers in south, like A R Rahman, Deva, Vidhyasagar, Keeravani, Mani Sharma, S A Rajkumar and many
. Though his songs become big hits in the regional languages, he has been accused of wrong and ill pronunciations, and killing the
, if that the case, then even the music directors are to be blamed for it.
His son Aditya Narayan is also an upcoming singer and has sung for A R Rahman in Rangeela and Taal (the child voice).
