Legendary Singer Shamshad Begum Passes Away

Legendary singer Shamshad Begum, known as one of the first playback singers in the Hindi film industry, who had lent her voice to hit songs like Mere Piya Gaye Rangoon, Kabhi Aar Kabhi Paar and Kajra Mohabbat Wala, breathed her last at her Mumbai residence at the age of 94 last night.

Begum's daughter Usha said that her mother had not been keeping well since the past few months and had been admitted to the hospital. Born on April 4, 1919 at Amritsar in Punjab, Shamshad made her singing debut on the Peshawar Radio in Lahore. Begum became a national rage between the 1940s and the late 1950s, having a voice different from her peers like Lata Mangeshkar and Asha Bhosle. In 2009, she was conferred with the prestigious O.P Nayyar award for her contribution to Hindi film music.

We at Movie Talkies offer a prayer for her soul and our condolences to her family.
