Today Marks the 23rd Anniversary of Noor Jehan's Passing

Today, on Saturday, people are remembering the 23rd death anniversary of the famous singer Noor Jehan. She was also called Malika-e-Tarannum, which means Queen of Melody. Noor Jehan was born on September 21, 1926, in Kasur, and her real name was Allah Wasai.

Noor Jehan started singing when she was only nine years old in Calcutta. She came from a family that loved music, so she inherited her passion for it. Throughout her career, she sang thousands of songs and became well-known as the Queen of Melody.

After the partition, she moved from Bombay to Pakistan and began her career in Pakistani films. She was not only a singer but also an actress and the first female film director in Pakistan. Her first film in Pakistan was ‘Chann Wey,’ which came out in 1951, and her last film was ‘Ghalib,’ released in 1961.

Noor Jehan received many awards for her talent, including the highest Pakistani entertainment honor called Tamgha-e-Imtiaz (The Pride of Performance) in 1966.
