5 Babbu Maan

Babbu maan has a huge fan power in india

He is the best

Best singar from punjab...ever

Best punjabi singer only Babbu Maan

6 Kishore Kumar Kishore Kumar was an Indian film playback singer, actor, lyricist, composer, producer, director, and screenwriter. He is considered one of the most successful playback singers of the Hindi film industry.

I think there is something mysterious in his voice that increase his voice quality and prefer him as the talented Indian male-singer ever

Upon reflecting on the movie industry between the 70's until the 80's it will come to light that many heroes benefited in terms of attaining popularity with their cinematic fans attributed to the playback voice of Kishore Kumar. This sentiment is seldom acknowledged by these actors. He was a star worthy of infinite praise. In my opinion he ought to feature as number one on your list.

He was the god among them

As far as I am concerned, Kishore the is the Numero Uno of all the male Indian singers. He is versatile and playful. He might not have been trained musically. But his talent alone got him number one status in the Indian film music world. Rafi is a talented artist. No doubt about it. But he was trained musically. Kishore the never got a national award. That shows how our people are so mean.

7 Rajesh Swami Nokha


8 Arijit Singh Arijit Singh is an Indian playback singer and music programmer from West Bengal who sings Bengali and Hindi songs.

10 Anudeep Dev


The Contenders

His next Filmfare Awards came for songs in the movies Saajan (1991), Deewana (1992), Baazigar (1993), and 1942: A Love Story (1994).


After rafi saab and kishore the, kumar sanu gave us some great and beautiful songs to Indian film industry. He was singing emperor during 90s. Even today one can feel this if s/he hears his romantic songs sung during 90s.

Kumar sanu is the best playback singer for Hindi films. I am a great fan of this - I am hoping that he starts singing again. His voice is soothing and melodious. Kumar Sanu is excellent

12 Freddie Mercury Freddie Mercury (born Farrokh Bulsara, 5th September 1946 - 24th November 1991) was a Zanzibari-born British singer of Indian descent, songwriter and record producer, known as the lead vocalist and songwriter of the British rock band Queen. He also became known for his flamboyant stage persona and four-octave more.

Technically he's Indian... but I don't think he should really be here. Still awesome though

Wasn't he born in a english speaking town in India, from when the British had colonized there. - Stalin

How is he almost at the bottom (no pun intended)? He was the greatest, 'enough said. - bighercules

13 Honey Singh Hirdesh Singh, known by this professional name, Yo Yo Honey Singh or Honey Singh, is an Indian music producer, Indi-pop singer and film actor.

HOW THE HELL IS HE EVEN ON THIS LIST with talented singers like shankar mahadevan, shaan?! His rap makes no sense!.. uses autotune and still sounds like .. cancer to Indian music industry... high time, people started to listen to real music and not this !

Next Level man.. who change change the seen of indian Music Industry...! Agree

He is best is Asia. He has like 60 or 70 awards. He has also charged Rs.7 million for a song in an upcoming film titled Mastaan starring Naseeruddin Shah. It is the biggest amount paid to a song artist in Bollywood to date, making Honey Singh the highest-paid musical artist in Bollywood.

He is the highest paid, and his songs are always loved especially by the young generation.

14 Shankar Mahadevan

One and only! No one can live without breath. But he is breathless.

In my opinion he is the most versatile singer we ever had. Highly gifted.

This doesn't need to breath at all.

He is the singer with unique voice... Any type of song, he gives life to it...

15 Jeet Ganguly
16 Ayushmann Khurrana

You are a nice singer or so cute

You are my best singer

He is one of the best Singer in Bollywood

Rejected from Indian Idol to Filmfare, Might not be the best singers, but his Paani the stands out, he deserves a like

17 Baabul Supriyo

I like your voice

Zubeen. Jindabad

Voice is perfect romantic song

A perfect voice to listen when in romantic mood, he is very traditional

18 Jubin Nautiyal

Jubin is not only an extremely attractive man, he is a genuinely wonderful human being. This alone should rocket him up the attractive list of any sane-minded woman/man. To top it all off he is supremely talented, and not just in acting. This man is unaffected by the media, a true gem in the blinding limelight. He's a down-home Dehrahun boy at heart, who just happens to be attractive and abundantly talented with a bit of a nerdy side, I'd you don't find that insanely hot then there isn't much helping your taste.

Amazing vocal range that sounded pure and almighty. He could sing low and high and move you with his words. Best male pop vocalist of all time in India (except maybe Shaan)

His voice is purely beautiful, he brings a tear to my eye with his songs, and there has been no one better.

He only sung 2 songs.. Both are top rated songs

19 Abhijeet Bhattacharya

I would have respected him more if he stuck to singing. From comparing poor people to dogs, to criticising atif Aslam. He has totally gone was below that belt. Let's forget him as he never existed.

One of the finest playback singer with a youthful mesmerizing soothing voice

One of the best male voice

Worst singer. Always taunting others. Criticizing Atif Aslam and other Pakistani singers. I just hate him. by the way I'm not a Pakistani.

20 Imran Khan

May allah bless u

He's only the best

Imran khan is best singer I world

Aal song are my favourite

21 Divya Kumar
22 KJ Yesudas

Yesudas, 50 Years completed in Kannada, Tamil, Telugu and Malayalam Film Industry as Playback Singer. Yesduas bagged more than govt awards from National and various state level. Yesudas has won the National Award (Hindi, Telugu and Malayalam) for the Best Male Playback Singer seven times, the most by any Indian singer.

Yesudas is the best in the world - not only respected in our country - but the entire music world - I would say when God desired to sing, He created Yesudas and sent him to our Universe. He handles both light music and classical music in the same ease and comfort. There is so much to learn from each and every song of his. It is sung with that much perfection which nobody else can repeat or try.

The celestial singer YESUDAS is the best male singer of India. YESUDAS is only the god of music or Voice of god. Living Legend.

National Film Award for Best Male Playback Singer a record 8 times by the Government of India

Kerala State Film Award for Best Singer a record 25 times for the best playback singer by the Government of Kerala

23 Anu Malik

Worst singer ever

He sucks.. The worst voice in the history of Bollywood

Worst singer in world

24 Yash Lunia



25 Kunnath Krishnakumar

Why isn't K.K. on the top? Listen to any K.K. song, and you will be mesmerized and feel intoxicated with the melody of his music and voice. Gosh he is so much better than singers like Atif Aslam, Kumar Sanu, and Shaan. He should at least on the top 5 along with the likes of Sonu Nigam and Udit.

K. K is worlds best singer... Great great great great voice & very down to earth personality, real artist who loves only and only music.. No show off...

No other Singer as Best as K. K in the Bollywood...

K.K. is the greatest singer in the world I have ever heard, and I mean it. His voice is one in a billion and deserves to be on top of this list hands down. If we stop rating the singers on respect basis just because of age I think we would see a more correct ranked list.

26 Mukesh

Please put the name of this greatest singer in top position. Only people who have not heard his songs or do not have any knowledge regarding rating a singer can do such injustice to all time great singer like our beloved Mukesh saab. Please do not vote without knowledge. This is my humble request all those who vote

With that dulcet voice which gives you goosebumps every time you listen to it, with that soulful peculiarity that no other singer can match and with that humble manner which makes us awestruck, Mukesh deserves a spot in top 5. Annoyed and astounded at the way the singers have been ranked. Popularity cannot be used as the sole basis for judging a person and his skills. What else do you want to get a spot in Top 5- I mean, he has 4 Filmfare Awards and 1 National Award. Surprised and shocked.

His voice is just amazing. And what's more is his style. He sang every song with full effort. He entertained us for more than 3 decades. Wonder, why he isn't included in the top three.

He has not learnt but his voice is extremely melodious

27 SP Balasubramaniam

SPB is the greatest ever singer in India.
Unfortunately he was recognized as a south Indian singer inspite of his best efforts he had done.
The biggest fun is here whenever anyone asks him who is the best singer?
He answers there are many great singer than me in the past and present.
He is an uncomparable singer.

The greatness of SPB, as I have seen, is in giving life to compositions of even lesser known composers. -music director
I think India may or may not produce such a genius singer in upcoming century.
He is the singer of the century. - Koti.
I don't whether the two greats KJY or SPB are comparable. But SPB can sing any type of song and that too he can make audience think that the actor himself sung that song so well.

He should be first on the list his music is the best

SPB is the only singer can make any kind of song magnificent with his divine voice. He can make any song sensational hit with his Marvellous voice. His all songs are superb irrespective of music.. While listening SPB 's songs, you can only think of his beauty of voice and forget all pains and sorrows.. His Guinness record is only for his number of songs.. It's noting in front of his talent.. He is the best singer forever... God may bless him forever till the earth exists

28 Amitabh Bhattacharya

His song "tera rasta" in the movie Chennai Express who starring Shahrukh Khan & Deepika Padukone. This song's music is composed by Vishal-Shekhar

29 Mohit Chauhan

Mohit chauhan is the best singer of the world. His voice is so different that it touches the heart. He is the best... I have no words

He is truly a class singer who has been special to me. He is working hard in Mumbai to be in remarkable position. Hope In upcoming days he will sing more Bollywood songs which will create a stardom position for him. God bless him.. Love his voice

31 Mohammad Aziz

Muhammad Aziz after (Late) Muhammad Rafi is a King of play back singing in India. Mohammad Aziz can sing every type of singing like Melody, Tragedy, Sufi and National Songs, right now in India no body can sing likh Muhammad Aziz and I also Disagree with this voting its not fact based Muhammad Rafi should be at top singers in India no one compete him.

No other singer has such a meleodous voice as mohd aziz.

One of the most versitile singer

Just listen to "Chand Gagan se Phool Chaman se" and you will find how great singer he was.
Another classic is from Ramayan "Van Van Bhatke Ram". You just feel the pain.

32 Rahat Fateh Ali Khan

Rahat is best of all... His sang a song very very good and touch to heart

He is simply very talented and he does not have many songs in bollywood but if he did he would be even more popular!

I am not sure if this is the appropriate position of the melodious Rahat. He is to be in the top threes.

38 Mohammed Rafi Mohammed Rafi was an Indian playback singer and one of the most popular and successful singers of the Hindi film industry. Rafi is widely considered to be one of the greatest and most influential singers of the Indian subcontinent.

Oh God! It is impossible to describe his voice and persona in one word. There is no one word that can aptly describe the sheer magic of Rafi's and his persona. The God of singing who was not just in a class of his own but a class in himself. A singer extraordinaire, a volcano of talent, a bard who can sing the pants off a king or emperor, a master of emotions and techniques, so versatile that he could sing any type of songs in any language with unmatched, unrivaled and unparalleled ease and masterly craft be it a classical, semi-classical, comedy, fun, patriotic, ghazals, qawwalis, rock n roll, romantic, sad, happy songs, soft, loud, lowest notes, highest notes... The list goes on and on and on as there is hardly any genre of music that he left untouched. A maestro, a virtuoso, a God gift to the mankind from Allah to spread the message of love and peace in this troubled world. He raised the bars of singing so high that no other singer can even dream of reaching those heights, his ...more

The fact will remain: Rafi saheb is THE TOP singer of all times. No matter which type of song he has proved to be excellent in expressing all emotions so effortlessly. No one can be near him. As Manadey sab said...What Rafi sab could do no singer can even try...
People are researching how one person can have such a wide range and still be so appealing

Yes truly no singer can ever dream of reaching near to Rafi Saab

No better singers than Kishore the, Lata aunty and him

But karthik can sing any variety and can impress anybody if you don't agree with me just listen to his songs and you will change your view he is unbelievable

Superb voice.. Addicted to it..

Karthik at 41st place. Seriously?! He is the most versatile singer of the country.. Though can't be compared to Sonu Nigam, the Maestro of Indian Music, Karthik has his own credibility.. Karthik should be in top 5, people come on. Vote! Sonu deserves to be in number 1 obviously... But karthil should be within the top 5.
