Lata Mangeshkar (b.1929) is the indisputable and reigning queen of the Indian film music. She started off as a singing actress in the Marathi film Pahili Manglagaur. Her first Hindi song, which was picturised on her, was a patriotic number for Marathi film Gajabhau in 1944, but the first mainstream Hindi song was for the film Aap Ki Sewa Mein. She acted in some Marathi and Hindi films but later restricted herself only to playback singing. She has several honours and awards to her credit including Padma Bhushan, the Dada Saheb Phalke Award and the Fellowship of the Sangeet Natak Akademi. The Madhya Pradesh government has instituted an annual Lata Mangeshkar Award in her honour.
