Kishore Kumar was born in Khandwa on 4 August, 1929. He left his house(Birth place) for Mumbai 

And never to return again till he expired on 13 October, 1987.After long time MP government has shown his interest to convert the home of Kishore kumar 'Ganguly House' in Khandwa District in to a museum.
The two-storied haveli, where Kishore and his actor brothers Ashok and Anoop Kumar spent their formative years, is lying in a dilapidated condition. The property is now with Anoop Kumar's son Arjun. The Gangly house may be in a bad shape but the city has tried to keep his memories alive. It has the late singer's 'Samadhi', where his last rites were performed as per his wishes. The house has a theatre with a facility to hear and watch songs of the late crooner. It also has an auditorium 'Gouri-Kunj' named after his parents."We wish to convert Kishore Kumar's ancestral place into a beautiful museum for the coming generations but we need the support and approval of his family members," state culture minister Lakshmikant Sharma has been quoted to have said. Incidentally, that late singer's fans have been trying for many years to get the house converted into a museum.
