Geeta Dutt birthday anniversary
He was her alchemist. Filmmaker Guru Dutt mentored songstress Geeta Dutt to deliver cinema’s finest melodies. Babuji dhire chalna, Yeh lo main hari piya, Jaa jaa jaa jaa bewafa, Piya aiso jiya mein samaye gayo re, Chale aao… were poetic offerings of a creative union. So immense was Geeta Dutt’s range that she was the only singer, Lata Mangeshkar was said to be wary of. And yet he was also her kryptonite. Restraining her from singing for other banners. Allowing ego and mistrust to corrode their home.
