The Filmfare Best Male Playback Singer Award is given by Indian film magazine Filmfare as a part of its annual Filmfare Awards for Hindi films, to recognise a male playback singer who has delivered an outstanding performance in a film song.

Contents

Although the Filmfare Awards started in 1954, awards for the best playback singer category started in 1959. From inception of the category through 1967, both the female and male singers used to compete for a single award, after which separate categories were created for female and male singers respectively.

Most Wins

Kishore Kumar won the award the maximum number of times 8 in this category, whereas Mohammad Rafi won it 6 times. Its a bit odd that during Kishore Kumar's popularity in the 1970s, he only managed to win 3 Filmfare awards for Best Male Playback Singer. Two singers: Kumar Sanu and Udit Narayan, have won the award five wins. Mukesh has won this award four times. Mahendra Kapoor and Arijit Singh have won it thrice. Four Singers have won the award twice; in chronological order, they are Sonu Nigam, Shaan, Sukhwinder Singh and Mohit Chauhan.

Kumar Sanu holds the record for most consecutive wins, winning all of his five awards from 1991 to 1995. Kishore Kumar won the award four times in a row from 1983 to 1986.

Two singers have achieved the feat of receiving all the nominations of this category in a particular year: Mohammed Rafi was the single nominee in 1969, having all the three nominations to his credit, while Kishore Kumar was the single nominee in 1985, having all the four nominations to his credit. Incidentally, Kishore Kumar's all nominated songs were from a single movie, Sharaabi.

Udit Narayan holds a unique record of reciveing nominations in this category in 3 different decades and getting award in all 3 different decades. Himesh Reshammiya became the first music director to win this award in 2006.
