He was the youngest in the family.

At the age of 18, he came to Bombay where elder brother Ashok Kumar was a major star. He got his first opportunity as a singer in Bombay Talkies Ziddi (1948) where he sang the song Marne ki Duayen Kyon Mangu for Dev Anand. Being an ardent admirer of K.L. Saigal, the song was sung in the style of the legend. He gradutaed into acting and made his debut as hero in the forgettable andolen (1951).

After his marriage to Ruma Devi resulted in a split in the family, Kishore approached S.D. Burman and then he was flodded with singing assignments.
