Kumar Shanu was born on October 20, 1957, in the capital of West Bengal, Kolkata. His father Pashupati Bhattacharya was a classical singer and musician. Kumar Shanu started his career with a Bengali film Teen “Kanya” in the year 1986. This movie was directed by Shibli Sadiq.

All the credit for bringing Shanu to Hindi cinema goes to late singer Jagjit Singh. He offered him to sing a song in the movie “Aanddhiyan”. In fact, Kumar Shanu used to try to copy the Kishore Kumar from his childhood which was the reason his voice few times sounded quite similar to Kishor Da.
