The same Jaddanbai whose daughter Nargis Dutt was one of Bollywood’s best actresses and grandson Sanjay Dutt (Sanjay) Dutt) is also a big star. It is a matter of the slave India of 1892, when Jaddan Bai was born in the house of Dalipabai, the famous tawaif of Allahabad’s Kotha. On the footsteps of her mother, Jaddanbai also started reciting thumri and ghazals. Such was the craze of his voice that the youths of two Brahmin families, who came to hear him, left the family and accepted Islam to marry him.
Dalipabai fled to Allahabad after being misled by the people who reached the village, but they sold Dalipabai in the kotha. Here he was married to sarangi player Mian Jaan, with whom he had a daughter, Jaddanbai. When she got into singing, Jaddanbai got the status of the best tawaif even from her mother.
