RIP Padamshree Pushpa Hans

Padamshri Pushpa Hans, a heart-throb of millions of cinema fans in the 40s and the 50s, acted in movies as a singing star and also did play back singing for actors of yesteryears. She hailed from Fazilka and was settled at New Delhi. Her acting added laurels and dimensions to movies of V. Shanta Ram's "Apna Desh, 1949”, Sohrab Modi's "Sheesh Mahal, 1950”. These are a few out of the many movies which were appreciated by the cine goers of 50s. She sang playback for the Music Director Vinod’s Punjabi first super-hit film "Chaman" and later for many other Hindi and Punjabi films. The melodious compositions like “Channa kithan guzari raat wey", are still sung by contestants especially in “Awaz Punjab Di” sponsored by several agencies on TV channels. Older generation still makes it a point to recollect her melodious songs which they still hum at the time of marriages and social functions.

She died at the age of 94.

Famous Punjabi Songs by Mrs. Pushpa Hans:

chan kithan gujaari saari raat ve
sari raat tera takni ha raah tarean to puchh chann wey
gallan dilan diyaan dila vich reh gayiyaan by shiv kumar batalvi
channa meri bah chhad dey
chunni da palla
lutti heer wey faqir de

Famous Hindi Songs sung by Mrs. Pushpa Hans:

aadmi woh haay musibat se pareshan na ho
bedard zamaana kya jaane
bhoole zamaane yaad na kar yaad na kar
dil kisise lagaake dekh liya
dil-e-naadaan tujhe kya hua hai
koi ummeed bar nahin aati
meri khushiyon ke savere ki kabhi shaam na ho
taqdeer bananewaale ne kaisi taqdeer banaayi hai
tohe dil ki qasam tohe dil ki qasam
tu maane ya na maane
tum dekh rahe ho ki mite saare sahaare

Best known tracks from Chaman (1948)
