The system of borrowed voice (i.e., playback singing) for actors started sometime in 1934 and playback singing was firmly in place in the Hindi film industry by the end of 1940. However, in the 40s, there were some prominent actor-singers Like K L Saigal, Noor Jahan, Suraiya, Shanta Apte, Kanan Devi etc. who continued to sing for themselves. Mukesh, Kishore Kumar, Talat Mehmood, Sulkashana Pandit etc who started as playback singers also sang for themselves whenever they acted in some films. GM Durrani who started his filmy career as an actor in the 30s switched over to playback singing and he became one of the most sought after male playback singer in 1940s. All these actor-singers/singer-actors had good voices and therefore one would normally expect them to sing for themselves while acting in films. However, there are cases where a few of such artists had to borrow voices of other playback singers.

Fabulous Foot Tappers – 6
– – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Goodness, more than 5 months since the last post in this series.  Starting in April, it was keeping a slow but regular pace till July, and then. . .

Anyways, back to one of my favorite genres – songs with a wonderful melody and a foot tapping beat that simply makes them irresistible hummers. One listens, and the mind simply wants to continue humming them, over and over again.  There are many such songs, and practically all of them are popular and well known. The thing that I am trying with this series is to locate the unfamiliar and less heard gems of this category, which have remained anonymous, mostly for the reason that they are from films that either did not get released, or films that remained obscure and unheard of themselves.
