About Shamshad Begum


Shamshad Begum (April 14, 1919][1]) is an Indian singer who was one of the first playback singers in the Hindi film industry. Begum was born in Amritsar, Punjab. She was a big fan of K.L. Saigal and watched Devdas 14 times. She earned 15 rupees per song and was awarded 5000 on the completion of the contract on Jenaphone. Sometime back, a controversy erupted in the media, when several publications, gave the false news of her death, before it was clarified that the Shamshad Begum who died in 1998 was Saira Banu\s (Dilip Kumar\s wife) grandmother with the same name, and the legendary singer, has been living with her daughter Usha Ratra and son-in-law in Mumbai, ever since her husband, Ganpat Lal Batto died in 1955 [2]. Recently, she celebrated her 89th birthday at her elder sister\s house and now she stays at Powai, Mumbai [3]. She was conferred the Padma Bhushan in 2009.[4]
