Anandji Virji Shah Biography (Wikipedia)

Anandji Virji Shah is an Indian music director. Together with his brother he formed the Kalyanji-Anandji duo, and won the 1975 Filmfare Award for Best Music Director, for Kora Kagaz. He is a recipient of the civilian honour of Padma Shri (1992).

Anandji were born to Virji Shah on 2 March 1933. Their father was a Kutchi businessman who had migrated from Kutch to Bombay to start a kirana (provision store). The two brothers began to learn music from a music teacher - who actually knew no music - and taught them in lieu of paying his bills to their father. One of their four grandparents was a folk musician of some eminence. They spent most of their formative years in the hamlet of Girgaum (a district in Bombay) amidst Marathi and Gujarati environs — some eminent musical talent resided in the vicinity.[citation needed]

Though Anandji wished to become an actor, he realised his height would act as a hindrance. But his love for films, helped him gain knowledge about direction, editing, and the behind-the-screen technicalities.
