Shailesh Mukherjee was a versatile artist who had a divine voice and as a

composer, he just excelled..Sailesh worked as an assistant to Vasant Desai

during the late 40’s. Vasant Desai gave him an opportunity to sing in the

movie Andhon ki Duniya in which he was himself the assistant composer. The

song was not that popular. In the very next year, Shailesh Mukherjee worked

with Ram Ganguly in Aag and the 2 songs which he rendered took him to great

heights. The 2 songs became very popular in the radio and even today it is

quite popular. The 2 songs were ‘Dekh Chand Ki Oar Musafir’ (with Shamshad

Begum) and ‘Rab Mere Arz Sun Meri’ (with Mukesh)..Shailesh Mukherjee again

worked with Ram Ganguly in Deepak and then in Suhani Raat, but the movie

released very late in 1974 and the songs were not released in a any record and

rather went unnoticed. Shailesh Mukherjee also sang songs under Arun Kumar,

Abid Hussain Khan, Sushant Banerjee and Pt. Shivram. The last song he sang was

in Naya Kadam(1958) under Pt. Shivram. ‘O Choova Moonva’, a peppy solo song

movie was Suhag Sindoor. In Suhag Sindoor, Shailesh Mukerjee composed 7 songs,
