Kumar Sanu, happy birthday!

The Padma Shri awardee turns 56 today

Born on September 23, 1957, Kumar Sanu is known for his versatility as a playback singer in Bollywood. Though Sanu started his playback career in 1986 with a Bangladeshi film named Tin Kanya, it was music director and singer Jagjit Singh who gave Sanu his first break in Bollywood to sing for Aandhiyan.
