Hemanta Kumar Mukhopadhyay (Bengali: Hemonto Kumar Mukhopaddhae) also known as Hemanta Mukherjee (16 June 1920 - 26 September 1989) was an Bengali singer, composer and producer. He sang in Hindi films under the name Hemant Kumar.Hemanta was born in the city of Varanasi, India although his family hailed from a village named Baharu in West Bengal. They migrated to Calcutta in the early 20th century. Hemanta grew up there and attended Mitra Institution school of Bhawanipore area. There he met his longtime friend, Subhas Mukhopadhyay who later became a Bengali poet. After passing the intermediate examinations (12th grade), Hemanta joined the Asutosh College of the University of Calcutta. However, he quit academics to pursue a career in music, despite parental objection.
