Geeta Dutt

Geeta Dutt met the then struggling Guru Dutt during the recording of Tadbeer se bigdi hui taqdeer bana le (Baazi, 1951), who fell in love with her beauty and voice at the first sight

S D Burman fully exploited Geeta Dutt’s unique potential from one end of the spectrum to the other. “Aan milo shyam saanware” (Devdas, 1955), the duet with Manna Dey has the unmistakable touch of the Baul folk music of Bengal.
