Talat Mahmood was a playback singer and film actor famous for his rendition of ghazals. Born in Lucknow to Manzoor Mahmood, Talat was musically inclined from a very young age and enjoyed all-night musicals where the biggest names in Indian classical music performed.

Talat’s musical career began in 1939 when he started singing ghazals on All India Radio, Lucknow. He had earlier apprenticed under Pandit S.C.R. Bhat at Morris Music College. Noticing his talent, HMV offered Talat his first disc, “Sab Din Ek Samaan Nahin Tha, Ban Jaoonga Kya Se Kya Main” in 1941. Despite his accomplishments at such a young age, Talat gained the approval of his conservative family only after a decade of singing.
