Randhir: Old is gold


By Hindustan Times

MUMBAI, Oct. 23 -- Okay, this looks like a blast from the past. Now don't get any naughty ideas my natkhat nuggets, for this item is purely musical. Some company was launching a compilation of the best of retro numbers and Randhir Kapoor was invited to do the honours.

Apparently, after hearing some of the yesteryear gems like Yeh mera dil from Don to Piya tu, ab toh aaja from Caravan, Kapoor reminisced about the music with veteran Ameen Sayani.

A khabru who overheard the conversation, recalls Randhirji remarking that the music of these days is forgotten even before it's registered, unlike that of the old days, which continues to be memorable to this day. I must admit I couldn't agree more. But then, such is life dearies.
