Incorrect information on the article

Hi. Really enjoyed the AV you have for Rafi and Kishore. But please correct some information there: - After Rafi sahab made a grand come back with Hum Kisi se kam nahi and Amar Akbar Anthony there was no turning back, rafi was back on top which also got him his last National award and filmfare award. Even RD Burman, a kishore pro, started using rafi sahab more than ever. Rafi sahab had the most successful hits of the 70s era after his come back including Zamane ko Dekhana hai, Amar Albar anthony, hum kisi se kam nahi, Laila Majnu, Naseeb, etc. So when you say Kishore all the way that was not true, Kishores popularlity decreased in the late 70s Lastly Guide had only one Kishore song that too a duet which was not at all more famous than the other songs in the movie, Kya se Kya hogaya, Tere mere sapne, etc. Please correct your facts before posting such articles. Regards!
