This article is one of the worst tribute to any legend,I dont know whom he is trying to defame,Kapoor Ji or Rafi Sahab. Kapoor Ji was so dedicated fan of Rafi Sahab that a full programme of 12 episodes broadcasted in 2005 on vivid bharti presented by Mahender Kapoor Ji was only full of praises for Rafi sahab.Thereonly I came to know that Rafi sahab was his guru when rafi lived in a flat at bhendi bazaar Mumbai. Author should gather the facts before writing such defamatory tributes.
I being a very close relative of Sri mahindra kapoor ji I can say,,,if this kinda critics are associated with highly hounered filmfare,the stincking personality of such person will affect Filmfare`s relibility as well...Rafi sahab is not only most esteemed person,he was nothing less than god to mahindra kapoor as kapoor himself admited it...writer should apologise with kapoor`s family as through this article kapoor infamy is increasing,,readers are getting wrong impression of mahindra ji,,,M kapoor worship Rafi sahab in every raaga and as human also......
Rafi sahab was Mahendra kapoor`s guru,guru in all the way,the writer of this article is materialistic frustated and can never understand the language of feelings,shame upon him who writes about someone`s guru(master) in such a low esteem,admit it or not Rafi sahab trained kapoor from childhood and helped him in his career as well,,,the writer have no manner and can never understand art,,,this article would surely have hurt mahindra kapoor`s soul as well,
What a stupid article! What is the purpose of bringing Rafi Saab in Mahendra Kapoor tribute? This is NOT the 1st time i have read Raju's idoitic articles related to Rafi Saab! Rafi Saab was NEVER on his toes!!!! He was a quite and god fearing man...Writting rubbish about him is totally uncalled for! Raju should be ashamed for writting such a shameless articles based on lies...Even after 28 years of his passing, fans still remember him daily! His voice was define just like his personality! Stop comparing singers! They all gave their best to entertain us and in return some of us try this mud slinging acts on the expense of other great singer! Again - Raju B should be ashmed of writting such non sense!
I am baffled by this report. Mahendra Kapoor treated Rafi as his God. In fact after years of being a Rafi clone, it was in a Rafi live show that Kapoor was singing as a filler and Rafi himself went up to him and lauded his voice, but also suggested him to not forget his originality, lest he remains a 'clone'...an invaluable tip Kapoor never forgot. Later it was Rafi who convinced Ravi to try with Kapoor for Humraaz because he himself was sick and would have needed weeks to recover and the recordings needed to be done soon. Rafi allowed space to Kapoor and kapoor has always been grateful to rafi for that. His house had a huge portrait of Rafi for a long time. This is so unlike Kishore Kumar, who realized that the voice of his own son, Amit Kumar was very close to him after the film Balika Badhu, and therefore convinced most directors to stick to him rather than trying with Amit Kumar as he felt that Amit's voice might threaten him in the long run. However, while Amit Kumar was not even close to Kishore in talent, Mahendra Kapoor was very far from Rafi in talent as well...

how did you know about this kishore and amit thing? how could a father thought to do this. what you are doing is 'praising rafi and thrashing kisore'
he is only singer who got the bharat ratna award and female lata mangeshkar. no other singer got the award after rafi death kishore has come not before. earlier there was no award other wise rafi sahab has plenty awards then other singer
