Pushpa Pagdhare, famously the voice that rendered “Itni Shakthi Hume De Na Daata” in the 1986 Hindi film “Ankush”, was a playback singer in the Hindi and Marathi film industries during the 1980s.
Though she has worked with Asha Bhosle, Lata Mangeshkar, Mahendra Kapoor and Mohammed Rafi in her heydays, she later fell into dire straits.
One of her other famous songs was “Dil Jhoom Rahe” from the movie “Bin Maa Ke Bachche” composed by O. P Nayyar. Earlier she had worked on the movie “Khoon Ka Badla” in 1978 where Nayyar was the music director. Other music directors she has worked with include Kuldeep Singh, S. N. Tripathi, Dinakar Powar and D.S. Reuben.
