Iam just so fond of Madam Shanta Apte. She was a singer-actress of the 30s and 40s. She mainly performed in Hindi and Marathi films, but also did a Tamil film – Savithri (1941) with great South Indian singer-actress and Carnatic musician Madam M. S. Subbulakshmi. She also sang an English song for her most famous film Duniya Na Mane (1937) – In the world’s broad field of battle. She had such a unique singing and acting style! I plan to create a site in honour of her soon.
