Celebrating 34 years of ‘Mr India’ and reminiscing his journey with the movie, Anil Kapoor shared a video from the movie where he told about the story behind the movie’s popular song ‘Zindagi Ki Yahi Reet Hai’.
Anil stated how the song came out and how the actor had to plead musicians Laxmikant-Pyarelal and singer Kishore Kumar to work together for the song. From obsessing over each detail of ‘Mr India’ and referring to the professional musical clash, Anil asked them to come together and after months, the beautiful melody ‘Zindagi Ki Yahi Reet Hai’ was the end result.
Quoting the song’s beautiful lines in his post’s caption on Instagram, Anil Kapoor added that till date this song from ‘Mr India’ is relevant. Concluding his heartfelt post, the actor wrote, “Be kind to each other, do the right thing; life may get tough, but in the end, good will prevail.”

Mr India was & always will be a very important film for me. I remember even 34 years ago when we began the journey I became obsessed with every detail. From the time I heard the tune of ‘Zindagi Ki Yahi Reet Hai’ I could only imagine Kishore Da’s voice singing it. At the time, Kishore Kumar & Laxmikant Pyarelal did not want to work together. It took months to even get in touch with Kishore da. When I finally did, I went to Kishore Kumar’s residence & mediated their patch up…the end result was this beautiful melody which is so uplifting during these tough times. Today is 33 years since the release of Mr India and it’s message is still as important, if not more so. Be kind to each other, do the right thing; life may get tough, but in the end, good will prevail. ‘Zindagi Ki Yehi Reet Hai Haar Ke Baad Hi Jeet Hai Thode Aansu Hai, Thodi Hasi Aaj Gham Hai To Kal Hai Khushi’
