Today BollyCurry celebrates the birthday of two beautiful divas who have won millions of hearts with their innocent yet mischievous looks; the vivacious Kajol Devgn and the soon to-be mother, Genelia Dsouza.

Born to Jeanette Dsouza, a former managing director of the Pharma Multinational Corporation (MNC), and Neil Dsouza, a senior official with Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), Dsouza was raised as a Roman Catholic along with her younger brother, Nigel D'Souza. She completed her schooling at Apostolic Carmel High School in Bandra and then went on to pursue her bachelors in Management Studies at St. Andrew's College, Bandra.

The bubbly lass started her career with modelling at the age of 15, receiving the height of attention with her Parker Pen commercial alongside Amitabh Bachchan. This led to her Bollywood's debut with Tujhe Meri Kasam (2003) opposite another newbie, Riteish Deshmukh. Her debut was followed by the hit comedy movie Masti (2004). Post this, Dsouza shifted focus to Southern movies and rapidly became one of the top established Southern heroines with successful films such as Boys (2003), Satyaam (2003), Samba (2004), Bommarillu (2006), Dhee (2007), Santosh Subramaniam (2008) and Ready (2008).

After having a successful run in the south nearly for five years, the Dsouza made a comeback to Bollywood with Mere Baap Pehle Aap (2008), which unfortunately failed to impress the audience and critics alike. However, she received worldwide recognition with her performance in the blockbuster Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na (2008) opposite Imran Khan. The petite actress was last seen in Tere Naal Love Ho Gaya (2012). Although the film received mixed reviews from critics, it was well received by the audience. She also did a cameo role in Jai Ho (2014) and Lai Bhaari (2014).

Dsouza is currently happily married to actor, producer and architect Riteish Deshmukh since 2012 and the much in love couple are expecting their first baby.

To celebrate Dsouza's birthday with some musical fun, BollyCurry presents to you some of her chartbusters:
  1. "Thodi Si Deewani" - Tujhe Meri Kasam
  2. "Sayanji Baiyan Chhudake" - Masti
  3. "Ishq Subhan Allah" - Mere Baap Pehle Aap
  4. "Kabhi Kabhi Aditi" - Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na
  5. "Pappu Can't Dance" - Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na
  6. "Kuke Kuke" - Life Partner
  7. "Rishta Hai Mera" - Chance Pe Dance
  8. "Main Chali" - Force
  9. "Piya O Re Piya" - Tere Naal Love Ho Gaya
  10. "Pee Pa Pee Pa" - Tere Naal Love Ho Gaya

Kajol Devgn, born as Kajol Mukherjee to actress Tanuja and film director Shomu Mukherjee, was brought up in a Bengali-Marathi family. She studied at St. Joseph Convent boarding school in Panchgani but dropped out to pursue a career in films and never completed her studies.

Devgn started her journey in Bollywood with Bekhudi in 1992 at the age of sixteen. Although the film failed at the box office, her performance was noticed and subsequently she appeared in Baazigar (1993). A successful run of movies followed these debuts including Yeh Dillagi (1994), Karan Arjun (1995), Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge (1995), Gupt: the Hidden Truth (1997), Ishq (1997), Pyaar Kya To Darna Kya (1998), Pyaar To Hona Hi Tha (1998), Kuch Kuch Hota Hai (1998), Hum Aapke Ke Dil Mein Rehte Hain (1999) and Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham (2001), all which helped the talented actress to established herself as one of the top iconic actresses of Bollywood.

Post Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham's release, Devgn took a break from acting to concentrate on her raising her daughter and returned to Bollywood with a bang after five full years in Fanaa (2006). After her blockbuster comeback, the beautiful Devgn continued to appear in superhits films such as My Name is Khan (2010) and We Are Family (2010).

Devgn is currently married to actor, producer Ajay Devgn and the couple have two kids, daughter Nisa, born in 2003 and son Yug, born in 2010.

When one thinks of Kajol Devgn, her graceful dance moves capture one's mind. To celebrate this joyous occasion, here is a list of Devgn's chartbusters:
  1. "Yeh Kaali Kaali Ankhein" - Baazigar
  2. "Mere Khwabon Mein" - Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge
  3. "Dekho Dekho Jaanam" - Ishq
  4. "Odh Li Chunariya" - Pyar Kya To Darna Kya
  5. "Ajnabi Mujhko Itna Bata" - Pyar To Hona Hi Tha
  6. "Ladki Badi Anjaani Hai" - Kuch Kuch Hota Hai
  7. "Suraj Hua Maddham" - Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham
  8. "Mere Haath Mein" - Fanaa
  9. "Tere Naina" - My Name Is Khan
