It took Kishore Kumar a long time,16 years in fact after Filmfare Awards were introduced in 1954, to get his first Filmfare Award in 1970 for “Roop Tera Mastana” from ‘Aradhana’ (1969) ~ though he had acted, directed, produced and sung in movies from 1946! ~ he gracefully acknowledged Rajesh Khanna for resurrecting his Singing Career ~ though he sang for many heroes and for many composers, Kishore Kumar created magic with Rajesh Khanna emoting his songs on screen and R D Burman composed the music for them
