The Rhythm King of Indian cinema, Omprakash Madangopal Nayyar, was born on January 16, 1926 in Lahore. He showed an early interest in music (and disinterest in regular jobs) when he joined All India Radio, Lahore as an artiste at the age of 11. By 17, he had composed two songs, of which one of them - “Preetam Aan Milo” sung by C.H. Atma became very popular. In fact, he reused this tune many years later for “Mr. and Mrs. 55” (1955).
