If a Bollywood film rocks at the box-office then how can its music not get a mention? Talk about hit Bollywood songs and all that you can think of is the mesmerizing voice of some Bollywood singers who sang it to perfection. Singing has never been an easy job especially when you are given a situation, emotion and actor or actress to sing for onscreen.

  • Some of the most versatile Hindi singers that Bollywood industry has produced have sung each song with such distinction, that it has often left listeners spellbound. The way each singer puts an effortless transition across the entire range of a song not only calls for applause but also a belief that the actor or actress is not lip syncing but really singing it. It's true that music is all about emotion and not just voice, but what makes a male playback singer or a female playback singer memorable is the voice which comes out straight from the heart.

Rafi, Mukesh, Lata Mangeshkar, Asha Bhonsle, Kishore Kumar and others who took playback singers in Bollywood to a different level and won many Filmfare awards and national awards.

    Who can forget the versatility of Kishore Da and his many popular songs which suited almost all the actors in Bollywood? But as time passed Bollywood playback singing changed as well as music and films. The emergence of technology took not only Bollywood music, but Indian cinema to another level and even south Indian singers started working towards becoming the top singers in India.
