Madan Mohan Kohli was born in Baghdad, Iraq to Rai Bahadur Chunilal Kohli, an accountant General with the Iraqi Police. His father returned to his hometown, Chakwal in Punjab when Madan Mohan was five years old. Even as a child, his talent was noticeable and he became famous in Chakwal for his singing.

In search of better prospects, his father first moved to Lahore and then in 1933 to Mumbai, where he started Bombay Talkies with Himanshu Rai. On his father’s insistence, Madan joined the army in 1943 but resigned in 1945 to join All India Radio (AIR), Lucknow as a program assistant. His AIR job made up for his lack of formal training in music as he made acquaintances with and learned from the musical greats of that time, like Ali Akbar Khan and Begum Akhtar. He eventually resigned in 1947 and moved to Mumbai, when AIR transferred him to Delhi for a desk job.
