Kavita Krishnamurthy

Kavita Krishnamurthy’s discography has a versatile range of songs right from peppy Bollywood numbers to soup for the soul renditions. Here are some of our favorite songs of the legendary playback singer!

As a Padma Shri, Kavita Krishnamurthy has had a phenomenal musical career where she's given the world evergreen songs. One can go on and on about her list of achievements but the best way to honor her legacy is to keep her songs alive in our hearts. She was one of the most popular playback singers in the 90s and she has songs for every mood possible. For instance: If you’re living under a rock and didn't know this - she's the energy behind every girl’s dream sangeet song aka Bole Chudiyaan. Her voice has brought that quintessential Bollywood vibe to many such classic films. Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam is another example of this. ‘Aankhon Ki Gustakhiyan’ which is termed as one of the most romantic songs was also sung by her. She has been many directors' go to choice for playback singing, especially Sanjay Leela Bhansali as she also gave a hit like ‘Dola Re Dola’ in Devdas. 

She had the power to turn a not so good story, feel-good with her songs or elevate a blockbuster even more. Her tracks Chand Sitare, Koi Mil Gaya, Tu Hi Re, and more are what most of us groove to and the nostalgia hits every single time. You cannot help but bring out your filmy self while listening to them and sing along with all your heart. Songs like the ones sung by her simply aren’t made anymore, and we wish we got more of them to add to our playlist!
