Synopsis: One of the last legendary courtesans of India, Begum Akhtar was a well known singer of ghazal, dadra and thumri genres of Hindustani classical musicHer voice was unique, pain adding richness and depth as the years went by. Rendering them in her inimitable style, she ensured that ghazal singing received due respect and came to be called Malika-e-Ghazal (Queen of the Ghazal), reaching unparalleled heights in a world that threatened to marginalize courtesans.
