Many happy returns to Alam Khan

Alam Khan--a renowned musician, composer and music director of the country, who has been awarded the prestigious National Film Award seven times--turns 75 today. The living legend said he will be celebrating the day with his family in a small, simple way.

DhakaLive has news that some of the TV channels wanted to do special programmes featuring the music director Alam Khan on his birthday.

However, the musician had to decline participating in the programmes on account of some health issues.

Interestingly, today is Alam Khan’s granddaughter Fatiha Azmi Khan’s birthday as well, which is one of the important highlights of the musician’s birthday. Both grandfather and granddaughter are to cut a cake together at their Mohammadpur residence in the capital, disclosed Alam Khan himself.

Commenting on his birthday, Alam Khan said, “I’m going to spend my first day of turning 75 with my granddaughter Azmi today. I’m grateful to the Almighty Allah. My parents and mentor Noni Chatterjee have encouraged me a lot. I’m living my life beautifully. All I seek are the blessings from everyone today.”

Alam Khan began his career at the early age of 10 as a composer and singer under many popular singing legends. His first composed song that was released—‘O madhobi go mor ontorey’, sung by Roushan Ara Mustafiz—was hugely popular before and after the Liberation War. He made his debut as a music director in 1970 by working in the film ‘Kach Kata Hire’ directed Abdul Jabbar Khan. His famous song ‘Ore nil doriya’ from the film ‘Sareng Bou’, directed by Abdullah Al Mamun, made him a centre of attention in the music industry. He bagged his first National Film Award by directing the music of the film ‘Boro Valo Lok Chhilo’ (directed by Mohiuddin).
