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:
“Now the nightingale, the pretty nightingale,
The sweetest singer in all the forests choir,
Entreats thee, sweet Peggy, to hear thy true Loves tale:
Lo! yonder she sitteth, her breast against a briar.”
—Thomas Dekker (1572?1632?)
“The award of a pure gold medal for poetry would flatter the recipient unduly: no poem ever attains such carat purity.”
—Robert Graves (18951985)
“In man, the shedding of blood is always associated with injury, disease, or death. Only the female half of humanity was seen to have the magical ability to bleed profusely and still rise phoenix-like each month from the gore.”
