The song ‘Aake Seedhi Lagi’ from the movie Half Ticket was originally supposed to be sung by Lata Mangeshkar and Kishore Kumar. But owing to some prior commitments Lata Mangeshkar could not be roped in for the song. Kishore Kumar who was known for his funny demeanor and uncanny sense of humor suggested that he be allowed to sing both the male and female parts. After much haggling music director Salil Chowdury complied and the song became one of the most popular numbers and is even remembered today especially for the comic effect lent by Kishore Kumar.

In another such incident, the director of a movie obtained court orders stating that the Kishore Kumar had to follow all his instructions. Kumar readily agreed and followed all instructions much to the delight of the director. Little did he anticipate that Kishore will not let go of the matter so easily. During one scene of the movie the actor had to drive a car and he continued driving.
