Mukesh Chandra Mathur was born on July 22, 1923, in a small middle class family in Delhi. As a young boy, Mukesh was interested in acting and singing. Although he studied only upto Class 10, he was able to get a job as Assistant Surveyor in the Department of Public Works.

Motilal, his relative, was the first person in the film industry who noticed Mukesh’s singing talent and took him to Pandit Jagannath Prasad for singing lessons. During this time Mukesh was given a chance to act in a Hindi film "Nirdosh" (1941) which failed at the box office. Mukesh had his first hit as a singer in the industry in 1945. The song "Dil Jalta Hai To Jalne De" from the film "Pehli Nazar" became very popular but as many observed, Mukesh sang in the voice of his idol, K.L.Saigal.
