R D Burmania: Panchamemoirs: Chaitanya Padukone
A book titled R D Burmania: Panchamemoirs authored by Chaitanya Padukone was released in July 2016. The book throws light on the legendary musician Rahul Dev Burman, whose cabaret tunes still reverberate at pubs and discotheques.
It also claims that Burman hated composing such songs and even believed that the genre was just a passing fad.
The book chimes a tribute that strings together amazing, amusing and fascinating anecdotes, incidents and idiosyncrasies as well as rare, startling photographs while unraveling the mystique behind Bollywood's most adored composer-singer RD Burman.
This Memoirs also features exclusive tributes to Panchamda from illustrious luminaries like Amitabh Bachchan, Lata Mangeshkar, Asha Bhosle, Rishi Kapoor, A.R.Rahman, Zeenat Aman, Sanjay Leela Bhansali, Hariharan, Sonu Nigam, Himesh Reshammiya, Shekhar Kapur, Mahesh Bhatt, Babul Supriyo and cricket legend Sunil Gavaskar, Hema Malini, 'late' Rajesh Khanna and many more.
