Saigal had a short span of life (1904 1947). With a God gifted voice he brought music to the masses and became a legend in his own life time. His haunting melodies continue to delight millions of his fans all over the world. Acclaimed as the Ghazal King he was also the first superstar of Indian cinema and nearly all his films were great box office hits. In this well researched book the author brings to light the little known facets of K.L. Saigal's personality. Lavishly illustrated with contemporary photographs related to K.L. Sauigal's life and times it is the first scholarly work of its kind which provides a fascinating portrayal of the phenomenon that was Saigal. 199 pp. Bookseller Inventory # 54793
