Mehnaz Begum
Pakistani film singer
 Mehnaz Begum

Mehnaz was well trained in classical music and she could sing ghazals well. She also recited the marsiyas and nohas during Muharram. Her claim to fame however remains playback singing. Mehnaz’s voice was beautiful, soft and melodious. She could portray emotions well and the composers approached her to sing songs whenever there was a dramatic moment in the movie. A true artist she sang with intensity and delivered every note high or low with perfection. Her lilting voice best suited romantic songs. Her romantic solos and duets were very popular and touched the hearts of the people. Mehnaz could create any mood with her flexible voice. Mehnaz is the only singer to have won 10 Nigar Awards, 7 of them consecutive.

Mehnaz was also a prolific ghazal singer. She sang Ahmed Faraz’s ghazal Jana so well that he dedicated it to her; an honor indeed.

Mehnaz is now married and settled in the USA. Mehnaz will always be remembered for her innumerable contributions to Pakistan’s music.
