Not a connoisseur of cinema but a jovial guardian of the filmi hamisphere. Mayur Lookhar loves Madhubala and Madhuri Dixit but idolizes Ranjeet and Prem Chopra. If not Mohammed Rafi, he can sing like Mohammed Aziz, and can throw a few pun-ches too. He has taken an eternal vow to paint the great legends of the hamming gods in red-and-gold. All hail Kishen Kumar! Uday Baba ki Jai!
