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.
