The story behind the song "Paanch Rupaiyya Baara Aana" from Chalti Ka Naam Gaadi.

Update: For those who cannot access the link:

College [Christian College in Indore] ke purva adhyapak Dr. Swarup Bajpayi yeh kahte hain - Kishore Kumar 1946-47 in do saaloan mein yahaan paDhayi ki. 1947 mein jab desh aazad hua to Kishore Kumar aur unki mandali ne yahaan jamkar jashn manaya, Kishore Kumar manch par aane se bhi behat gabhrate the. College mein jab vah gaate the to parde ke peeche chupkar gaate the aur manch par hont koi aur hilata tha. Baad mein unki super-duper hit film Padosan mein bhi unhone aisa hi qirdaar nibhaaya tha.

Dr. Surendra Katekar kehte hain ki Kishore Kumar aur Anup Kumar yahiin hostel mein hi rahte the aur canteen mein hi khaate the. Kishore Kumar par canteen sanchalak ke paanch rupaiyya baara aane bakaaya the jise ve aksar Kishore Kumar se maanga karte the. Baad mein isi theme par unhone ek gaana gaaya va us par abhinay bhi kiya.
