Things that u don't know about Filmfare Awards...(Part II)

Continuing the trivia trip on Filmfare Awards, today we bring out to you interesting facts and figures relating to the music awards category in Filmfare.

Did you know that the awards for lyricists and playback singers started only after 5 years of the inception of awards? Also till 1966 there was no separate award for male and female playback singers. There are much more factoids on the list. Check out…

Best Music

Best Music director was the only category in the Music genre that started with the birth of Filmfare Awards in 1953.

The top five Music Directors on the basis of number of times they have won the award are:
Shankar-Jaikishen - 9
Laxmikant-Pyarelal - 7
A.R. Rehman - 5
Nadeem-Shravan - 4
R.D.Burman - 3

Shankar-Jaikishen (1970,1971,1972), Laxmikant Pyarelal (1977,1978,1979) and Nadeem Shravan (1990,1991,1992) are the only music directors to have made a hattrick in winning the Best Music Director award.

Salil Chowdhary (Madhumati) is the only music director to have 100% winning and nomination ratio. He has been nominated just once and has won.

Madan Mohan never won a Filmfare award inspite of being nominated thrice, so is the case with Viju Shah who has been nominated for four times.

Best Lyrics

The only lyricist to have a hattrick in winning the Filmfare award is Shakeel Badayuni (1961,1962,1963).

The top five lyricists on the basis of number of times they have won are:
Gulzar - 8
Javed Akhtar- 6
Shakeel Badayuni - 3
Shailendra - 3
Sameer - 3

Asad Bhopali and Rajendra Krishna have 100 % nomination and winning ratio. Both have been nominated once and have won.

Javed Akhtar has set a record this year (2004). All the five songs chosen for the Best Lyrics category are written by him.

Javed Akhtar was nominated for the first time in1985 after which he has won 6 times and has been nominated for 10 times!

Filmfare Award for Best lyrics started only in 1958.

Best Playback Singers

Awards for playback singing also started in 1958 and would you believe that for 9 years (1958-1966) there was no separate award for male and female singers.

Salma Agha is the only Pakistani singer to win Best Female Playback in the history of the awards.

Filmfare award for female playback has been shared only twice.
Alka Yagnik and Ila Arun (Khalnayak) in 1993
Shreya Ghoshal and Kavita Krishnamurty (Devdas) in 2002

The only female singers who have 100% nomination to winning ratio are Shreya Ghoshal and Jaspinder Narula. The former has been nominated and awarded twice and latter once.

The top five Female Playback singers on the basis of number of times they have won are:
Asha Bhosle - 7
Alka Yagnik - 6
Lata Mangeshkar - 4
Kavita Krishnamurty - 4
Anuradha Pudwal - 4

The top five Male Playback singers on the basis of the number of times they have won are:
Kishore Kumar -8
Mohd. Rafi- 6
Kumar Sanu- 5
Udit Naryan - 5
Mukesh - 4

Kumar Sanu has won Filmfare award for best male playback singer for 5 years consecutively.

The hattrick stars of Best Playback Male are Kishore Kumar (1982-1985) and Kumar Sanu (1990-1994).

The artistes to have achieved a rare feat of having all the nominations to their credit in a particular year are as follows:
Mohammed Rafi - Best Male Playback (1968)
Asha Bhosle - Best Female Playback (1972)
Kishore Kumar - Best Male Playback (1984)
Alka Yagnik - Best Female Playback (1993)
Javed Akhtar - Best Lyricist (2004)

Shreya Ghoshal is the youngest singer to have won Best Female Playback award at the age of 18.

  • Prodigy Sunidhi Chauhan has not won a Filmfare award as yet inspite of being nominated twice. So has singer KK who has never won but has been nominated twice.
