Hum aap ki aankhon mein...
Geeta Dutt was born in 1930 into a zamindār's family as Geeta Ghosh Roy Chowdhuri in Faridpur, India(now in Banglādesh).
In 1942, her parents moved to Dādar, Bombay when she was twelve. There, composer/music director Hanumān Prasād once heard her singing casually, and was impressed. He introduced her in a chorus song in Bhakta Prahlād (1946), where she sang only two lines. The following year, she got a major assignment as a playback singer for Do Bhāi, and then on she was recognised as one of the top playback singers in Bombay film industry.
