Amit Kumar is an Indian film playback singer, actor, director, and music director. He is the son of famous singer and actor Kishore Kumar and famous Bengali singer and actress Ruma Guha Thakurta. Like his father he too loved singing since childhood and used to sing in Kolkata during Durga Pooja functions. Once he was performing on stage in Kolkata in a Durga Pooja function arranged by the great Bengali actor Uttam Kumar, people kept on requesting for more songs and this information reached his mother. She called in Kishore Kumar and complained that your son is singing 'filmy' songs. Hearing this Kishore Kumar was delighted and decided to bring him to Bombay (now Mumbai).

He has sung many popular Bollywood and regional film songs in the 1970s, 1980s, 1990s and sings even today.

In late 1980s and throughout the 1990s film industry saw invasion of many clones of legendary Kishore Kumar. Also this was the era when film industry Bollywood was struggling with onslaught of underworld. This forced many producers and directors to obey dictates of underworld dons in selection of startcast, music-directors, and singers. Some underworld favored singers were superimposed on the better projects. That put pressure on real and genuine artists like Amit Kumar. Despite all these facts, very rarely a singer last for more than one decade, but Amit Kumar is thriving since last 38 years. Considering this scenario this is amazing achievement by Amit.
