The career of Ameen Sayani 

For more than 42 years, Ameen Sayani was well-known for his show Binaca Geetmala, which aired from 1952 until the present day, primarily on Radio Ceylon and then Vividh Bharati (AIR). Since 1951, Ameen has composed, produced, or spoken for 19,000 commercials and jingles and more than 53,000 radio shows. Over these years, Sayani has also played roles in a number of films, including Boxer, Teen Devian, Bhoot Bungla, and Qatl.

Social media is flooded with tributes to Ameen Sayani, who contributed to the success of All India Radio in India. “Binaca Geetmala would endure forever. I’m grateful for the memories and music.

Namaskarr bhaiyo aur behno, mai apka dostt Ameen Sayani bol rha hun, was the announcement reverberating through living rooms throughout the nation, emanating from large wooden box-shaped radio sets. When Bollywood songs were forbidden from airing on All India Radio, his presentation became an instant hit. Additionally, it served as a platform for the dissemination of plain Hindustani, which struck a chord with people all around the nation. In an interview with Indian Express Ameen recalled those moments and said, “I wanted each listener to feel like I was talking to them.” It instantly struck a chord. Surprisingly enough, it completely changed the radio presentation. I never thought it would become so popular in the upcoming years. Such wonderful times those were. My love affair with Radio Ceylon was that.
