BollyCurry is pleased to announce a new feature that will celebrate the lives of our renowned music artists and their incredible contribution to the Indian film industry. First in our hot seat, we have someone who is well known name in the music circuit. Her songs are soothing to the ears and is often fondly known as the modern nightingale of India. We're talking about none other than the melodious diva, Shreya Ghoshal.

Ghoshal started her journey in music at an early age where she took part in the popular music contest called Sa Re Ga Ma Pa as a child. She previously sung various songs in Bengali but it wasn't until she took part in Sa Re Ga Ma Pa for the second time as an adult, that she won recognition, fame and a direct ticket into Bollywood.

Her career as a playback singer started with the hit movie Devdas, where she was offered to be the voice of Paro (Aishwarya Rai Bachchan), the female lead. She lent her vocals for a total of five songs for that movie and each song became a huge hit, along with earning her recognition from all over the industry. Her first song from the magnum opus, "Bairi Piya", earned her a National Award. Such a prestigious award at the age of 18 is an extremely commendable event. Ghoshal was also being nominated for other several awards such as the Filmfare Award, IFFA Award, as well as the RD Burman Award of New Music Talent for various other songs she sung in the film.

Thereafter, offers started pouring in. Ghoshal can also sing in many languages including; Bengali, Telugu, Bhojpuri, Gujarati, Kannada, Marathi, Punjabi, Malayalam, Tamil, Assamese and Hindi. Not confined to only Bollywood, her the singing sensation is also a big name in the South where she originally started her singing career.
