His distinctive introduction –“Namaskar bhaiyon aur behno, main aapka dost Ameen Sayani bol raha hoon (Hello everyone, this is your host and friend Ameen Sayani) –made him recognisable to millions of listeners and even came to be emulated.
He produced and featured in over 54,000 radio programmes and 19,000 jingles since 1951.
Hamid Sayani, Ameen’s brother, introduced him to All India Radio, Bombay. Ameen Sayani began his stint with Radio Ceylon in 1952. Sayani was also a part of several movies including ‘Bhoot Bungla’, ‘Teen Devian’, ‘Boxer,’ and ‘Qatl’.
