Alka Yagnik
Winner of 4 Best Female Playback Singer, Filmfare Awards

Top Hits

But like the post - Mangeshkar generation of singers Alka's best phase began in the 1990's. By 1991 - 1992, she established herself as the busiest singer on the block, a position she still holds today despite the increased competition and her own choosiness! By the law of averages, her high hit songs have not followed any particular image, thus establishing Alka as the next all - rounder after Lata and Asha, and probably the prime singer of choice for heroines. Today, her list of actresses spans from Sharmila Tagore, Rakhee and Rekha to Preity Zinta, Rani Mukherjee, Amisha Patel and Kareena Kapoor. There is no significant composer she has not sung for, and in the case of the toppers she has consistently been the first and most frequent choice of names like Laxmikant - Pyarelal, Anand Milind (except for a brief phase when they were not recording together), Nadeem - Shravan, Anu Malik, Rajesh Roshan and Jatin - Lalit. She has also sung for all the newest composers on the block - Vishal, Anand Raaj Anand, Himesh Reshammiya, Sajid - Wajid, Shankar - Ehsaan - Loy, Ismail Darbar and Sanjeev Darshan.

The cavalcade of hits include - as main female singer - films like
