Actor, Singer extraordinaire was born on 4th of August 1929 in Khandwa Madhya Pradesh. This year Kishore Da’s birth anniversary falls on the friendship day weekend. While Kishore da cannot be bound with a particular genre, we thought this year’s tribute could be a collection of his songs that could double up as your friendship day playlist.

Tere Jaisa Yaar Kahaan: The superhit song from the movie ‘Yaarana’ is a timeless classic from the maestro. The song features Amitabh Bachchan and is a beautiful ode to friendship. The lines like “Yaara teri yaari ko maine to khuda maana” make it our top pick of the list. The song was also used in the movie ‘Sanju’ recently.  


Diye Jalte Hain: This melodious song from Namak Haraam features Rajesh Khanna and Amitabh Bachchan.

“Daulat aur jawani ek din kho jaati hai, sach kahta hoon saari duniya dushman ho jaati hai. Umar bhar dost lekin saath chaltey hain.”

The song focuses on how everything from money to youth is evanescent and mundane but true friendship is hard to find and permanent.


Yeh Dosti Hum Nahi Todengey: This song from ‘Sholey’ transcends time and era. Featuring Dharmendra and Amitabh Bachchan the song transformed into a friendship anthem over time.

Salamat Rahe Dostana: The song from the movie ‘dostana’ literally meaning friendship focus on the bond between friends. The song features Amitabh Bachchan and Shatrughan Sinha and picturised on the backdrop of school reunion.

The opening lines “bane chahe dushman zamana hamara, salamat rahe dostana hamara” convey the true feelings behind friendship.


O Sathi Re Tere Bina Bhi Kya Jeena: This song from Muqaddar Ka Sikandar picturised on Amitabh Bachchan narrates the ordeal of being separated from the beloved. The song can be perfectly used in the context of friendship as well.
