Trivia (3)

Suman never won the National or Filmfare Award for singing but is still considered among the popular singers of her prime time.
In a career spanning 35 years she sang for most of the top music directors of the '50s, '60s and '70s.
Her voice was considered to be very similar to Lata Mangeshkar which is why she was called in as a replacement for Lata in the mid '60s during the Rafi-Lata feud. She sang over 140 duets with Rafi in this period.
