Udit Narayan (Jha)

Posted on: Thursday, Feb 3, 2011


Birth: Dec 1st
Birthplace: Nepal
Profession: Playback Singer, Bollywood.
Family: Wife Ranjana Jha & Deepa Narayan Jha and son Aditya Narayan

Udit Narayan is, without a doubt, the reigning king of male playback singers. He was born to on the border of India and Nepal.Udit’s capability as a playback singer knows no bounds, as he has been magnanimously acclaimed in every kind of melody – soulful, romantic, fast-paced and recently, even pop. Udit has an extremely versatile tone which appears to flawlessly suit every Indian hero on screen. And today, innumerable awards and accolades later, Udit Narayan possesses one of the largest arrays of hit songs in the industry. Udit Narayan was born on the 1st of December to father who was a farmer,Hare Krishna Jha and mother Bhuwaneshwari Devi. He belogs to the Brahmin caste. Narayan studied at Kunauli Bazaar (Saharsa), where he passed his S.S.C. and later obtained his intermediate Ratna Laxmi Campus (Kathmandu).Udit Narayan began his career in Nepal singing for Kathmandu Radio Station where he used to sing Maithli and Nepali folk songs. Udit worked for Kathmandu Radio for almost eight years before the Indian Embassy offered him the chance to study classical music at a prestigious school in Mumbai,Bhartiya Vidya Bhavan on a music scholarship. He wasted no time and came to Bombay in 1978. But success did not come instantly. Only after years of study and several unnoticed recordings did he hit gold with his vocals for Aamir Khan in 1988′s Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak. Fans marvel at his versatility, but his trademark is his”golden smile,” so called because, during upbeat songs, one seems to actually *hear* the smile on his lips.

While he was still training in classical music Udit had also started doing the mandatory rounds of music director’s offices. Like all aspiring singers he too had to face the bitter disappointment of false promises from the music directors who kept saying that they were impressed by his voice. However it was Rajesh Roshan who gave him his first break for the film Unees Bees in 1980 starring Rakesh Roshan and Mithun Chakraborty. Even after he sang for Unees Bees nothing clicked for him as the film flopped and the struggling period continued. For over a decade he had to work very hard and nothing seemed to work for him.

Udit Narayan is actually Udit Narayan Jha, a maithil brahmin. His paternal place is Bhardah (saptari district), Nepal and his maternal place is Nirmali (madhubani), India. Udit spend most of his early struggle life singing in small gatherings, radio nepal and later on acting on Nepali movies. However, nowhere he got success. It was a nepali movie where he performed playback singer with Deepa Narayan (Gahatraj). Deepa is a Darjeeling based Nepali (Indian Nepali) whose family is related with Nepali music and that helped Udit to put his footprint on Nepali music industry. Later on he got Indian government cultural scholarship to study music in India. Then comes Qayamat se Qayamat Tak (QSQT), rest is known to the world. 

His all family except (himself, Deepa and Aditya) still lives in Bhardah (District Saptari) Nepal.

Udit is also married to a Ranjana Jha belonging to his maternal place.

About Mithila

Mithila is an ancient cultural region of South Nepal and North India lying between the lower ranges of the Himalayas and the Ganges River. The Nepal border cuts across the top fringe of this region. The Gandak and Kosi Rivers are rough western and eastern boundaries of Mithila. The Ramayana records a dynastic marriage between Prince Rama of Ayodhya and Sita, the daughter of Raja Janak of Mithila. The town of Janakpur, in the northern Nepali section of Mithila, is believed to be Janak's old capital.
