She made her debut in Tamil playback singing with Vanaradham in 1956 (Uran Khotala dubbed in Tamil) with Tamil song Enthan Kannalan picturised on Nimmi in the dubbed version composed by Naushad.

Mangeshkar sang many raga based songs for Naushad in movies such as Baiju Bawra (1952), Mughal E Azam (1960), and Kohinoor (1960). Ae Chorre Ki Jaat Badi Bewafa, a duet with G. M.

However a rift developed between Lata and Burman in 1957, and Lata did not sing Burmans compositions again until 1962.Mangeshkar won a Filmfare Award for Best Female Playback Singer for Salil Chowdhurys composition Aaja Re Pardesi, from Madhumati (1958). In the early fifties, Lata Mangeshkars association with C. Ramchandra produced songs in movies such as Anarkali, Albela, Asha, Pehli Jhhalak, Shin Shinkai Bublaa Boo, Azad and Amardeep.
