Kumar Kancha, a famous singer and actor passed away at the age of 53. Kancha was under treatment  in S L Raheja Hospital in Mahim, Mumbai.  He was struggling against Spinal Cord tumors since seven months and the heart attack took his life finally.


When Kanchha pleaded for financial support for his health a popular actress Namrata Shrestha from Nepal organized a Kumar Kancha evening for funds raising which could gather approximately 300,000 NRS. Several other Fund raising campaigns were taken place but the attempts to save a beloved singer turned futile.


He shined with the songs Batasaile Udai lyayo Maya mero, Ajkal ko Keta Phutanee laangchha(lauchha) and Jindagi ko ke bhara chhara.  He was well recognized in Nepali Movies with his acting in Koshelee and Lahure while in India he was awarded for his brilliant act in ”Piya kar gaun” with national award.  Born in Kolkata in 1957 Kanchha lived with his two sons and his wife.  He has sung in more than twenty five different languages in India and contributed with more than 1000 songs including about 100 Nepali songs
