    Geeta Dutt (real name Geeta Ghosh Roy Chowdhuri) was born on November 23,1930 in a rich zamindaar's family in Faridpur, Bangladesh.In 1942,when she was only twelve her parents shifted to an apartment in Dadar, Bombay.

    The composer/music director Hanuman Prasad who used to live in the same apartment as of Geeta Dutt used to hear her singing casually and feeling impressed he offered to give her training in Singing. He launched her in a chorus song in Bhakht Prahlad(1946) in which she sang only two lines but her rendering of those two lines impressed everyone in the recording studio.

    She got a major assignment as a playback singer for Do Bhai(1947) and her songs in the film brought her as a top notch playback singer.She was known mostly for singing bhajans or sad weepy songs.But she knew well to adapt to western tunes with S.D.Burman's jazzy musical scores in Baazi(1951).
