Director Rajesh Roshan gave him his first break for the movie Unees Bees which paved the way for his glorious future. He is among the very few current playback singers that have shared the stage with Mohammed Rafi and Kishore Kumar. Narayan made a huge impact in 1988 through the blockbuster Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak for which he was awarded a Filmfare award.
