Talat Mahmood

Talat Mahmood born(February 24, 1924 ) death (May 9, 1998) was a popular Indian playback singer and film actor. A recipient of Padma Bhushan he is famous for his ghazals, resulting in a title of “king of ghazals” bestowed upon him by fans and critics [1].

Talat saab as he is now referred to, has often been described as a singer with a silky voice. His voice never suited loud songs, songs that demanded a high-pitched voice. Shouting or screaming didn’t suit him and so he avoided those kinds of songs too. He only sang soft, romantic, lyrical, ghazals.Talat saab went for his vocal training under PT.S C R.BHATT in Bhatkhande music college lucknow
