Uma Devi Khatri (screen name: Tun Tun) was a playback singer and comedienne in the Hindi film industry. Born in a conservative Punjabi family in Uttar Pradesh, she ran away to Bombay at the age of 13. Her debut song was in Nazir’s “Wamiq Azra” (1946). She began getting counted among the stalwart musicians of the era only after she began working with producer-director A.R. Kardar. She took up acting in 1950 when her career in music began to wane.

Tuntun was married to Mohan who became besotted with her after listening to her rendition of “Afsaana Likh Rahi Hoon” (“Dard”, 1947).
