(This story is from The Quint’s archives and was first published to mark Manna Dey’s birth anniversary. It’s being republished to mark the death anniversary of the music maestro.)

It’s the birth anniversary of Padma Shri, Padma Bhushan and Dadasaheb Phalke awardee Prabodh Chandra Dey popularly known as Manna Dey.

The legendary singer who made his debut in the film Tamanna (1942) recorded more than 4000 songs from 1942 to 2013.

As the song Banno from Tanu Weds Manu Returns races up the charts, we got the boys behind the song - music director and lyricist Vayu Srivastava and the singer Brijesh Shandilya to do an impromptu remix one of Manna Dey’s songs.

First listen to the original song, Phool Gendva Na Maro from the movie Dooj Ka Chand (1964) sung by Manna Dey here:
