Hailing from Karwar, Karnataka, Paudwal embarked on her singing journey at the tender age of 19. She gained widespread recognition with her rendition of “Omkaram Bindu Samyuktam” in the hit film “Abhimaan,” composed by SD Burman, with whom she collaborated on numerous occasions.

Paudwal rose to prominence in Bollywood in 1983 with her chartbuster song “Tu Mera Hero Hai” from the film “Hero.” Over the years, she clinched four Filmfare Awards, with her peak period being the 1990s when she captivated audiences with her melodious tracks in movies like “Aashiqui,” “Dil Hai Ke Manta Nahin,” and “Saajan.”

Transitioning towards devotional music in the 2000s, Paudwal’s philanthropic endeavors were equally commendable. In 2016, she established the Suryodaya Foundation, dedicated to providing healthcare support to the underprivileged, earning her the Mother Teresa Award in 2011.

Acknowledging her contributions, Paudwal was honored with the prestigious Padma Shri in 2017, further solidifying her legacy as a versatile artist and humanitarian.
