After the death of Mohammed Rafi, many singers tried to fill the void left behind by the legend. Shabbir Kumar, an ardent Rafi fan, started off as a Rafi clone before forging an identity for himself. He emerged as one of the top singers of the decade with hit songs in Coolie (1983), Woh Saat Din (1983), Betaab (1983), Sohni Mahiwal (1984), Pyar Jhukta Nahin (1984), Meri Jung (1985) and many more. Shabbir Kumar's career was a microcosm of film music in the eighties. Join Gautam Chintamani at Cinemaazi Studio for an exploration of the sound of the eighties Hindi film, and how it transitioned to the nineties.
