Sometimes compared to the greatest voices in the Indian music industry like Lata Mangeshkar, Shreya Ghoshal’s voice can easily cast a spell on her listeners. The melodious singer was born in Berhampur, West Bengal on March 12, 1984, but spent most of her time in Kota, Rajasthan.

She shifted to Mumbai in 1997 and studied at the Atomic Energy Central School. She then joined the Atomic Energy Junior College to study science but changed her mind soon after to study arts and English at the SIES College of Arts, Science, and Commerce.

Her musical aspirations came to life at the age of 4. By the age of 6, she had started learning classical music formally. She trained under Late Kalyanji Bhai for over a year and then continued under Late Mukta Bhide. In the next 10 years, she entered and won the singing reality show Sa Re Ga Ma Pa where reputed filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali spotted her. She was given a chance to sing for his movie Devdas, for which she earned a National Film Award and a Filmfare award.

Though Devdas’s “Bairi Piya” and “Dola re Dola” were instant hints, they were not her first recorded songs. That credit goes to “Ganraj Rangi Nachato,” a rendition of Lata Mangeshkar’s Marathi song. Her first studio album with 14 tracks was Bendhecchi Beena, released in 1998.

She sang a very popular and seductive song “Jaadu Hai Nasha Hai” and “Chalo Tumko Lekar Chale” for the movie Jism, which helped her become a prominent singer in Bollywood who could sing versatile songs. Her song “Har Taraf” from the movie Saaya also earned her accolades. Her most versatile movie playback performance was for Nadeem-Shravan composed Tumsa Nahin Dekha in which she sang both soft and playful numbers. Her peppier songs included those for the movie Main Hoon Na, including “Gori” and the edgy but catchy “Tumhe Jo Maine Dekha.”

Her other most popular songs were for the movies Yahaan, Parineeta, Paheli, Rog and Vivah among others, including the song “Agar Tum Mil Jao” in the movie Zeher.

She has a long list of awards, most prominent of them being four National Film awards and six Filmfare awards. Her contribution to music was recognized by Ohio state governor (United States) Ted Stickland, declared June 26 as Shreya Ghoshal Day. She was honored by the House of Commons of the United Kingdom in 2013 and featured in the Forbes list of top 100 Indian celebrities for five years. She is also the first Indian singer whose wax statue is installed in Madame Tussauds Museum.

She is married to her childhood friend Shiladitya Mukhopadhyaya in February 2015, after dating him for 10 years.
