All About Susheela P.Suseela



P. Susheela or Pulapaka Susheela పి.సుశీల (born November 13 1935) is an Indian playback singer. She has recorded several songs in many South Indian languages including Telugu, Malayalam, Tamil, and Kannada.

She is one of the greatest singers in the Indian cinema. Her career spanned for more than four decades.



Career
In 1950, music director Pendyala Nageswara Rao was looking for new talent and scouted for new singers at All India Radio. Of the five people referred, Susheela was selected and sang her first song, a duet with A. M. Raja - 'Edhukku azhaithaai' for the movie.

Susheela made her entry when competition was intense. But her entry in 1952 outshone others and soon pushed all of them to the background. Right from 1955 she was very popular and almost all the movies had a song sung by her. It was the legendary Saluru Rajeswara Rao, who spruced up her voice culture and gave her challenging assignments especially involving veena in his music direction.

She rendered several memorable songs under the legend K. V. Mahadevan and under the expert baton of M. S. Viswanathan in all south Indian languages.

Her most recent song is "Pottu Vaitha" in Sila Nerangalil. She has recorded this song after many years.
