India! The country with amazing diversity and wonders has many champions. All these are real facts and real records. Most of them are certified by authentic record books like Guiness Book of Records & Limca Book of Records. I am trying to tabulate as many as I can. Please help me in my efforts by adding more facts and records.

The Indian popular singer Asha Bhosle is acknowledged as the most recorded artist in music history. She is the sister of another famous playback singer Lata Mangeshkar.

Other than Indian languages, she has also sung in various foreign languages. Renowned for her voice range and often credited for her versatility, Bhosle's work includes film music, pop, ghazals, bhajans, traditional Indian classical music, folk songs, qawwalis, and Rabindra Sangeets. Apart from Hindi, she has sung in over 20 Indian and foreign languages. In 2006, Asha Bhosle stated that she had sung over 12,000 songs, a figure repeated by several other sources. In 2009, World Records Academy first recognized Asha Bhosle as the Most Recorded Artist.  In 2011, she was officially acknowledged by the Guinness Book of World Records as the most recorded artist in music history.

Asha Bhosle has won seven Filmfare Best Female Playback Awards of 18 nominations. She won her first two awards in 1967 and 1968. After receiving the award in 1979, Bhosle emulated her elder sister Lata Mangeskar and requested that her name not be considered for the nominations hereafter. Despite this, Bhosle is the most frequent winner of this award to date, tying with Alka Yagnik. She was later given a Special Award for Rangeela in 1996, and the Filmfare Lifetime Achievement Award in 2001.
