sharda rajan

Welcome to my mobile site. Which is dedicated to Sharda ji-

Sharda was a playback singer in Hindi films in the 1960s and 70s. She won the Filmfare best Female Playback Singer award for the cabaret "Baat zara hai aapas ki" in Jahan pyar Miley (1970).

Sharda belonged to a conservative Brahmin family from Tamil Nadu and was inclined towards music from childhood. She got her first big break in Bollywood with the song "Titli udi in Suraj" (1966).

"Titli udi" turned out to be a top chartbuster in 1966. Thereafter she continued singing for Shanker-Jaikishen.

She sang with most of the top singers like Mohd Rafi, Asha Bhosle, Kishore Kumar, Yesudas, Mukesh and Suman Kalyanpur. She lent her voice to top leading ladies of the time like Vyjayanthimala, Saira Banu, Hema Malini, Sharmila Tagore, Mumtaz, Rajashree and even Helen. She was the first Indian female singer to cut out her own pop album in India sometime in 1968. She also performed on stage on several occasions like Filmfare Awards Functions, charity shows, naval functions, and many others.

Sharda was somehow never able to reach the top bracket of singers and she blames some of the highly successful singers of the time to have deprived her of her chances by indulging in dirty politics. She also has the distinction of being a BA graduate. But in spite of all that she did manage to create a certain section of the music listeners as her fans and well wishers.

Besides S-J, she also recorded songs with Usha khanna, Dattaram, Iqbal Qureshi and a few others.

Besides Titli udi, Sharda's most popular tracks are:

Jaan e Chaman (Gumnaam) -with Mohd Rafi
Leja Leja mera dil (An Evening In Paris)
Chale jana zara (Around The World) - with Mukesh
Tum Pyar se dekho (Sapno Ka Saudagar) - with Mukesh
Woh Pari kahan se (Pehchan) - with Mukesh & Suman Kalyanpur
Kisike dil ko (Kal Aaj Aur Kal)
Jab bhi yeh dil udaas (Seema) - with Mohd Rafi
She was nominated four times for the Filmfare Best Female...
