Today is Playback Singer Preeti Sagar’s birthday. She won the Filmfare Best Female Playback Singer Award for Mero gaam Katha Parey… Manthan (1978) and received a special Filmfare Award for the hit My heart is beating… Julie (1975). Despite accolades and awards coming her way, she could not maintain her position in Bollywood.
