▪ 2007

      Indian motion-picture composer and music director (b. Dec. 25, 1919, Lucknow, British India—d. May 5, 2006, Mumbai [Bombay], India), was credited with the introduction of an elegant new style of music to Indian cinema through the incorporation of Indian classical and folk music into his compositions. He also devised innovative orchestrations that often included full orchestras and Western instruments, notably violins and brass horns. Naushad wrote the scores for more than 65 Bollywood motion pictures from the early 1940s until his last film, Taj Mahal: An Eternal Love Story (2005). He also published a volume of poetry. Naushad was honoured with the Dadasaheb Phalke Award (1981) and the Padma Bhushan distinguished service medal (1992) for his lifetime contributions to Indian cinema.
