Filmfare Award For Best Female Playback Singer
The Filmfare Best Female Playback Award is given by Filmfare as part of its annual Filmfare Awards for Hindi films, to recognise a female playback singer who has delivered an outstanding performance in a film song.
Although the award ceremony was established in 1953, the category for best playback singer was introduced in 1959. The award was initially common for both male and female singers. The category was divided in 1968, and ever since there have been two awards presented for male and female singers separately.
Famous quotes containing the words singer, award and/or female:
“Children dont read to find their identity, to free themselves from guilt, to quench the thirst for rebellion or to get rid of alienation. They have no use for psychology.... They still believe in God, the family, angels, devils, witches, goblins, logic, clarity, punctuation, and other such obsolete stuff.... When a book is boring, they yawn openly. They dont expect their writer to redeem humanity, but leave to adults such childish illusions.”
—Isaac Bashevis Singer (20th century)
“The award of a pure gold medal for poetry would flatter the recipient unduly: no poem ever attains such carat purity.”
—Robert Graves (18951985)
“When a woman drinks its as if an animal were drinking, or a child. Alcoholism is scandalous in a woman, and a female alcoholic is rare, a serious matter. Its a slur on the divine in our nature.”
—Marguerite Duras (b. 1914)
