Dedicated to the Great Melody-Makers who are real The Emperors of Hindi Film Music
Raj Kapoor Greeting His one time favourite and closed to his heart Shanker, whom he deserted when Shanker needed more. How selfish and ungrateful this filmwallahs

The statement is 100 % true. After the demise of Jaikishan the media went on a Shankar bashing due to no fault on his part. Even his work post Jai was not recognized. Rajkapoor’s Mera Naam Joker bombed inspite of the superlative music of SJ. In fact the only good thing about that movie was the music. Even in Kal Aaj Aur Kal the songs were very good, but the movie was not a commercial success. Shankar needed encouragement & a little time to recover after the devastating loss of two of his very close friends. RK should have reposed confidence in his ability & should have asked him to compose for Bobby, but he stabbed him in the back. But LP & RD burman were no match for SJ when it came for composing for RK banner. The music in RK was never the same again. It must be noted that only RK wanted Sharda to be promoted as a singer & Shankar had a misunderstanding with Lata only because of RK. Shankar was a great person as he took everything in his stride and carried on the SJ banner till 1987 inspite of great odds. He was a real fighter & fought till the end without sacrifising his pride.
