If a Bollywood movie ever made on Einstein !

If there was a Bollywood movie ever made, on the life story of greatest scientist of all times, Albert Einstein – which Bollywood actor will be most suitable to play the role? Kishore Kumar, undoubtedly! Stop this Bikash. Stop using this word “undoubtedly”! That is your guess. Mafi Hazoor, I shall refrain now. Open to voting?

I just love some of his quotes! "Evil is simply the absence of God." Einstein asserted: "Evil is simply the absence of God." By implication, good is the presence of God. Good and evil exist in the world. Thus God must also exist. Another one where he says - “If you can’t explain it simply, you don’t understand it clearly”. And this one…"If A is a success in life, then A equals x plus y plus z. Work is x; y is play; and z is keeping your mouth shut.” ......Cool, intelligent, worldly respected and humorous scientist (quite different, you know what I mean, SCIENTISTS!)!

And Kishore Kumar; the most successful Indian singer (of any form) was an equally funny chapter, by all means! He was said to have been paranoid about not being paid. During recordings, he would sing only after his secretary confirmed that the producer had made the payment. Once, when he discovered that his dues hadn't been fully paid, he landed up for shooting with make-up on only one side of his face. When the director questioned him, he replied "Aadha paisa to aadha make-up." (Half make-up for half payment).

Once, producer-director H. S. Rawail, who owed him some money, visited his flat to pay the dues. Kishore Kumar took the money, and when Rawail offered to shake hands with him, he reportedly put Rawail's hand in his mouth, bit it, and asked "Didn’t you see the sign?". Rawail laughed off the incident and left quickly.

According to another reported incident, once Kishore Kumar was to record a song for producer-director G. P. Sippy. As Sippy approached his bungalow, he saw Kishore going out in his car. Sippy pleaded him to stop his car, but Kishore only increased the speed of his car. Sippy chased him to Madh Island, where Kishore Kumar finally stopped his car near the ruined Madh Fort. When Sippy questioned his strange behavior, Kishore Kumar refused to recognize or talk to him and threatened to call police. Sippy had to return. Next morning, Kishore Kumar reported for the recording. An angry Sippy questioned him about his behavior on the previous day. However, Kishore Kumar insisted that Sippy must have seen a dream, and claimed that he was in Khandwa on the previous day.

Once, a producer went to court to get a decree that Kishore Kumar must follow the director's orders. As a consequence, Kishore Kumar obeyed the director to the letter. He refused to alight from his car until the director ordered him to do so. Once, after a car scene in Mumbai, he drove on till Khandala because the director forgot to say "Cut".[ In the 1960s, a financier named Kalidas Batvabbal, patently disgusted with Kishore Kumar's alleged lack of cooperation during the shooting of Half Ticket, gave him away to the income tax authorities. Kishore had to face a raid at his house. Later, Kishore invited Batvabbal home, tricked him by asking him to enter a cupboard for a "chat" and locked him inside. He unlocked Batvabbal after two hours and told him "Don’t ever come to my house again."
