Ayushmaan Khurrana took to social media on Wednesday to pay an emotional tribute to legendary singer-actor Kishore Kumar on his birthday.
Wishing the late Kishore Kumar on his birth anniversary, Ayushmaan sang Kishore Kumar's popular song 'Chookar mere mann ko' with a mashup of 'Moh moh ke dhaage' from his film 'Dum Laga ke Haisha' in a short video post.
The singer-actor wrote that he could not sleep the previous night because it is Kishore Kumar's birthday. "Happy birthday Kishore da! You don't sleep the entire night and then record this early in the morning. And you don't get sleep coz it's Kishore da's birthday."
Ayushmaan is currently shooting for 'Doctor G' in Bhopal which also happens to be Kishore Kumar's birthplace. The actor wrote about the coincidence. "And I'm in his state MP! Bhopal is treating me well. Khandwa, his birthplace is just two hours away from here."
Aysuhmaan dressed in a casual T-shirt is accompanied by pianist Akshay Varma who trained the actor for 'Andhadhun' and now for 'Doctor G'. He wrote, "And pls welcome @akshayvarma04, my musician friend, who trained me with the piano in Andhadhun. And now he's training me with the dialect for Doctor G! As of now 'Tu jo kahe jeewan bhar tere liye main gaaoon.' The song of an artiste who is immortal. #HappyBirthdayKishoreDa."
