In Short

Renowned radio host Ameen Sayani passed away at 91
Sayani was rushed to hospital after a heart attack
He gained fame through his radio program 'Geetmala'

Iconic radio host Ameen Sayani has died at the age of 91 after suffering a heart attack, his son Rajil Sayani said on Wednesday.

Rajil Sayani stated that his father was rushed to the HN Reliance Hospital in Mumbai but couldn't be saved. The funeral will be held on Thursday, he added.

Born on December 21, 1932 in Mumbai, Ameen Sayani was a household name for generations, captivating audiences with his melodious voice and engaging style. He began his career as an English-language broadcaster, and transitioned to Hindi after India's independence.

Sayani achieved immense popularity through his radio program 'Geetmala', which played a pivotal role in popularising radio listening in India.

Geetmala, hosted by Sayani, became a national phenomenon, showcasing popular Hindi film music and captivating listeners for decades. His signature way of addressing listeners as "Behno aur Bhaiyo" (sisters and brothers) became instantly recognisable and widely imitated.

Sayani's career spanned over six decades, producing and presenting over 54,000 radio programs and 19,000 voice-overs for advertisements and jingles.

He also dabbled in acting, appearing in various films in small roles, often portraying an announcer.

In a condolence message, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said Sayani's "golden voice on the airwaves had a charm and warmth".

"Shri Ameen Sayani Ji’s golden voice on the airwaves had a charm and warmth that endeared him to people across generations. Through his work, he played an important role in revolutionising Indian broadcasting and nurtured a very special bond with his listeners," he said in a post on X.

"Saddened by his passing away. Condolences to his family, admirers and all radio lovers. May his soul rest in peace," the Prime Minister added.

Very sad to hear Ameen Sayani passing away. I grew up listening to his Radio Programs (Films' Publicity & Binaca Geetmala).
I don't think any Radio Host or even TV host will ever be as popular as Ameen Sayani.
Long Live Ameen Sayani and his voice.

BTW, Ameen Sayani was giving Radio publicity programs, on Radio Ceylone, for 'A' grade films. Producers who could not afford Ameen Sayani, they ('B' films) used another Radio host. I've been trying to recall that name. Does anyone remember or know that name ??
