“The magic of Kishore Kumar”, a musical nite staged at Hardy’s World last evening, evoked nostalgia among fans of Kishore Kumar. The moment Amit Kumar, son of the legendary singer, came on the stage, the audience started clapping with delight.

Amit sang Kishore’s evergreen songs and the listeners were enthralled as his voice resembled that of his father. After singing Kishore’s songs, Amit Kumar sang his own hit songs, including “Yaad aa rahi hai” from “Love Story” and “Deewana dil deewana”.

He regaled the audience with popular numbers like “Mere pyaar ka ras zara chakna” from “Bade Miyan, Chhote Miyan” and “Chal dariya mein doob jayen”.

Amit said he had last visited Ludhiana in 1999. On his second visit, he was here again to pay tribute to his father.

In the beginning of the show, Sargam Orchestra entertained the audience. Punjabi singer Sagar sang hit Punjabi numbers.
