Today two individuals who are an integral part of B-town share their birthday - one is a rising starlet and the other is an established, famous singer and music director! Yes, today we are celebrating the birthday of both Shraddha Kapoor and Shankar Mahadevan! So BollyCurry gets together with fans of both these amazing stars to wish them on their special day!

Shraddha Kapoor is the daughter of Shakti Kapoor and Shivangi Kapoor. She was born on 3rd March, 1992 and is of mixed descent as her father is Punjabi while her mother is a Marathi. She has an older brother, Siddhanth Kapoor, and both her aunts, Padmini Kolhapure and Tejaswini Kolhapure, are also actors. Kapoor attended Jamnabai Narsee School and then attended the American School of Bombay. She went to Boston, USA to continue her studies, but returned for her debut movie Teen Patti (2010) when she was spotted on Facebook by the producer of the movie, Ambika Hinduja.

Kapoor debuted with Teen Patti (2010) and though the movie did not do too well at the box office, her performance, and the movie in general, was appreciated by critics. She then went on to sign a 3-film deal with Yash Raj Films. She portrayed the lead role of Rhea in Luv Ka The End in 2011 and though it did not fare well at the box office, her role was once again appreciated by critics and viewers. Though Kapoor was offered Aurangzeb, she went on to sign Aashiqui 2 and this cancelled her contract with Yash Raj Films. Aashiqui 2, which released in 2013,  became a huge hit, bringing her career to an all time high. She was nominated for the Best Actress category at the Filmfare Awards and Star Screen Awards. She then went on to do an extended guest appearance in Gori Tere Pyaar Mein (2013). Kapoor is currently shooting for The Villain (2014) opposite Sidharth Malhotra and Haider (2014) opposite Shahid Kapoor.

Kapoor is not just an actress, but also a model and supports several charitable organizations. She is also the brand ambassador for several products, such as Lakme, Vaseline, and Gitanjali.

On her birthday, here is a playlist of some of Kapoor's most popular songs:
  1. "Luv Ka The End" - Luv Ka The End
  2. "Freak Out" - Luv Ka The End
  3. "Chahun Main Ya Naa" - Aashiqui 2
  4. "Piya Aaye Na" - Aashiqui 2 
  5. "Hum Mar Jayenge" - Aashiqui 2
 
On the other side, we have renowned singer and music director, Shankar Mahadevan. Born on March 3rd, 1967, Mahadevan is a Tamil Iyer who was raised in Chembur, Mumbai. He learned music since a very early age, though he studied and completed a degree in computer science and software engineering from the Ramrao Adik Institute of Technology in Navi Mumbai. He worked as a software engineer for some time for Oracle, before stepping into the entertainment world. He is married to Sangeeta, a Maharashtrian, and has a son Siddharth Mahadevan, a singer, who recently made his debut with the popular song "Zinda" from Bhaag Milkha Bhaag (2013).

Mahadevan debuted as a singer in Tamil movies and got his first award as a playback singer in a Tamil movie. He then released his first album Breathless in 1998, well-known for its title track, which was set up to be sung in one breath. He then ventured into music direction and became part of the famous Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy trio, which has composed songs for many Hindi films. Mahadevan isn't just a music director, but has also sung songs for many different Hindi and Tamil movies. In March 2011, Mahadevan began his own academy, the Shankar Mahadevan Academy, which offers tutorials and courses in Carnatic and Hindustani classical music, religious chanting, Indian folk music, and Bollywood songs.

Today, on his birthday, here is a playlist of some of Mahadevan's most memorable songs:
  1. "Breathless" - Breathless
  2. "Rind Posh Maal" - Mission Kashmir
  3. "Dil Chahta Hai" - Dil Chahta Hai
  4. "Ek Aur Ek Gyarah" - Ek Aur Ek Gyarah
