K L Saigal: Immortal Singer and Superstar

 
Pran Nevile (Author)
Synopsis Recognised as the greatest popular singer of the subcontinent ever since music began to be recorded, K.L. Saigal had a short span of life (1904-1947). With a God-gifted voice he brought music to the masses and became a legend in his own life-time. His haunting melodies continue to delight millions of his fans all over the world. Acclaimed as the Ghazal King, he was also the first superstar of Indian cinema and nearly all his films were great box-office hits. In this well-researched book, the author brings to light the little known facets of K.L. Saigal's personality. Lavishly illustrated with contemporary photographs related to K.L. Sauigal's life and times, it is the first scholarly work of its kind which provides a fascinating portrayal of the phenomenon that was Saigal.
