Kishore Kumar's Juhu Residence HobbiesReading Novels, Driving, Playing Table Tennis and Football Controversies• In the mid-1980s, he developed a sour relation with Amitabh Bachchan when the actor turned down the offer of making a guest-appearance in Kishore Kumar’s production venture “Mamta Ki Chhaon Mein.” The singer was so upset by Amitabh’s gesture that he decided to stop singing for him. However, the two made peace after Kishore sang ‘Aaya Aaya Toofan’ in Amitabh’s film ‘Toofan’, a few years later.

• He also stopped singing for Mithun Chakraborty after his 3rd wife Yogeeta Bali divorced him to marry Mithun. However, he could not avoid singing for Mithun for long and lent his voice for Mithun’s film Surakkhsha (1979) and later on for several of his hit films – Disco Dancer, Faraib (1983) and Waqt Ki Awaz (1988).

• During the Indian Emergency (1975–1977), when Sanjay Gandhi approached him to sing for an Indian National Congress (INC) rally in Mumbai, Kishore Kumar refused the offer. As a result, the then Congress Government put an unofficial ban on playing Kishore Kumar’s songs on State Broadcasters Doordarshan and All India Radio from 4 May 1976 till the end of Emergency.

• In the 1960s, he had built up a notoriety for coming late for the shootings or bunking them. As his films flopped frequently, Kishore Kumar landed in the income tax trouble also.
