Happy Birthday, Shreya Ghoshal

As the singer turns 28, we look at the songs that made Shreya the most iconic singer of her generation

Shreya Ghoshal started her singing career at the age of 16, when Sanjay Leela Bhansali spotted her on the sets of Sa Re Ga Ma Pa. He was so mesmerised by the young singer’s voice that he made her an offer instantly: to be the voice of Paro in Devdas, in 2000. The film released a couple of years later and Shreya picked up several awards – including a National Award and a Filmfare trophy – for the Best Playback Singer (female). The time when only one or two singers ruled the musical roost is today a thing of the past and a huge number of singers have come and gone in the last decade, but Shreya has managed to hold her own, growing into one of the top playback singers of the industry. We look at some of the iconic songs that established her as one of the most remarkable and versatile singers of this generation….

Dola re, Bairi piya and Silsila ye chahat ka – Devdas

While Dola re (a duet Shreya sang with Kavita Krishnamurthy) got Shreya several awards, Silsila… and Bairi piya were her first solos. As soon as the music of Devdas was out, it was clear that the young singer had great potential.

Jaadu hai nasha hai – Jism

The sensuality and soothing texture of her voice won her accolades for this one, considered to be one of the sexiest songs of all time.

Yeh ishq hai -Jab We Met

This song became hugely popular and it is one of the most fun and melodious songs she has sung.

Piyu bole – Parineeta

Shreya, with Sonu Nigam for company (the two have created magic on several occasions), sang this melodiously romantic song with total sweetness and innocence.

Ooh la la – The Dirty Picture

This one had to have an 80s feel and Vishal-Shekhar felt that Shreya could bring out the sexiness while keeping the old world charm alive. It became one of the biggest hits of her career.

Chikni Chameli- Agneepath

Shreya’s first out and out item number, Chikni Chameli is a fast-paced number. Not many believe that Shreya is capable of singing a high-voltage tune. But she proved that she can bring forth energy and naughtiness when a song demands it!
