Teen Gaayak Aur Ek Abhineta

Geeta ji was active in the film industry for more than 25 years. As a top playback singer in the 40s and 50s and wife of a top Film maker, It is but natural that She would rub shoulders with other singers as well as actors.

Fellow Geeta Fan, Lakshmipriya ji recently shared a picture where one can see Geeta ji with other top playback singers Lata Mangeshkar and Mukesh talking to Ace Actor and Showman Raj Kapoor.

Raj Kapoor can be seen talking animatedly to them probably cracking a job to which Lata Bai and Mukesh are laughing at while Geeta ji looks on. Here is the lovely picture :-

Seeing all of them together makes me feel that they must be together in connection with the recording of the song Hai Aag Hamaare Seene Mein for the movie Jis Desh Mein Ganga Rehta Hai. This song had as many as five singers, Mahendra Kapoor, Manna Dey as well in addition to the three seen in the pictures. Geeta ji gets very less opportunity to sing in it due to so many singers being there and It being more of a chorus song.

Here’s the song for your viewing pleasure :-

Wish Raj Kapoor had given more singing opportunities to Geeta ji in his films. Though Geeta ji has sung for many of his films made for other banners. If there is interest, in the combination, do tell us in the comments and we’ll be glad to put up a post regarding this!
