On Lucky Ali's birthday we look at singers who ruled the decade before the advent of reality singing shows and a paradigm shift in Bollywood's priorities changed the equation forever
Lucky Ali: Son of late comedian Mehmood, he stormed onto the pop scene with his debut album ‘Sunoh’ (1996), which is still considered among the best in the genre. The song ‘O Sanam’ from the album remains fresh even today. He made it big in playback singing as well with ‘Kaho Naa... Pyaar Hai’ (2000) before stepping away from the competition. Popular songs: 'Anjaani Raahon Mein Tu Kya', Teri Yaadein', 'Dekha Hai Aise', 'Kabhi Aisa Lagta Hai', 'Na Tum Jaano Na Hum’, 'Ek Pal Ka Jeena'
