In conversation with host Kapil Sharma, Sameer Anjaan, the Indian lyricist and a Guinness World Record holder for writing the most songs shares that there is no song which doesn’t have memories attached to it and goes on to share his memory from the recordings of Khaike Paan Banaras Waala. Sameer shares, “The first time I came to Mumbai I went to a recording with Papa (Anjaan) as I wanted to meet Kishore Da. There when Kishore Da arrived I was spellbound because I always imagined him walking in a suit and he arrived in a China Silk lungi & Kurta along with socks on slippers (laughs); I had never seen anybody like this. He had kajal and surma in his eyes.” Kapil quips in between saying Kishore Sir used to do this purposefully to entertain people around.

Sameer then goes on to share Kishore Da’s and his dad’s (Anjaan) fun banter saying, “Dad was narrating the song to Kishore Sir and after he heard the line ‘Arrey bhang kaa rang jamaa ho chakaachak’ he kept the pen down and was like where did you(Anjaan) get all these words?. I haven’t heard these words before. Going forward when they reached the ‘khaike paan banaaras vaalaa’ part Kishore Sir was a little confused and said I will sing ‘Khake’. After the entire song was written Dad explained to him that the hero in the film is based out of UP and  I had the opportunity to use the language as much as I can since I also belong from UP. Kishore Sir agreed to trust dad saying if the song is a hit then he will take him to Banaras and he (Kishore Da) will sit near the Ganga and sing the song and the entire Banaras will listen to him. Dad instantly rejected this idea stating we can’t do this as the crowd would be unmanageable. Kishore Sir then recorded the song in a single take.”
