Everyone likes a bit of trivia to liven up their day. For instance, did you know Tom Cruise was considered to play the role of Raj in 1995 blockbuster hit Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge?
Long before the World Wide Web existed, Indian musicians had the liberty to simply get "inspired" by popular tunes floating around public space without the fear of being called out on social media.
But for Kishore Kumar, who sang the catchy number "Ek Chatur Naar" in cult-classic Padosan(1968), the inspiration came from his own home.
Yep, the hit 1968 number was not originally sung by Kishore Kumar and Manna Dey. The song got its first voice from Kishore's elder brother Ashok Kumar in 1941 flick Jhoola, also a classic in its time.
The suggestion to rehash the song in Padosan came from the younger brother, Kishore, who also played the pivotal role of Sunil Dutt's mentor in the movie.
Sharing this bit of trivia, Twitter user @mahendra3 attached a clip of Ashok Kumar's original song which has now gone viral on the microblogging site.
