Composer Usha Khanna’s Birthday


Today is Composer Usha Khanna’s Birthday. Being the third female music composer in Bollywood, her predecessors were Jaddan Bai and Saraswati Devi. Usha Khanna saw commercial success at the beginning of her career, despite the fact that the field was dominated by men. Her career spanned more than 30 years from the 1960s to the 1980s. Post 4 decades of her debut, she is still composing for some films and teleserials.

Bollywood and Composer Usha Khanna’s Birthday

Some of my favorite songs from her early 1960s compositions are:

Meghare bole ghanan ghanan… Dil Deke Dekho (1959)

Chori chori teri aayi hai Radha… Hum Hindustani (1960)

Tum akele toh kabhi bag mein jaya na karo… Aao Pyar Karen (1964)

Maine rakhkha hai mohabbat… Shabnam (1964)

Haye tabassum tera… Nishan (1965)

Hum tumse juda hoke… Ek Sapera Ek Lutera (1965)
