One of the most versatile and effortless singers of this generation turns 30 today – happy birthday, Sunidhi!
Born on August 14, 1983, Sunidhi Chauhan is one of the most sought-after singers in B-town today. She came into the spotlight when she sang Ruki ruki for Ram Gopal Varma’s Mast. Although she was barely 16 then, Sunidhi managed to prove her talent as a playback singer quite effortlessly.Chauhan has won several awards, including for Sheila ki jawaani (Tees Maar Khan) and Beedi jalaile (Omkara). She seems to be in a happy space today, personally and professionally. Married to childhood friend, music composer Hitesh Sonik and labelled a versatile singer, Sunidhi has reached enviable heights in the music world. What’s admirable is that she has achieved this position after weathering many storms.
Her first marriage to choreographer Bobby Khan didn’t work, but that didn’t deter her from moving on. The singer judged the singing reality show Indian Idol 6 last year along with Asha Bhosle, Anu Malik and Salim Merchant. We hope she continues entertaining us by lending her voice to more mind-blowing numbers. We pick 15 of her songs that we like most. You tell us which you like best, but don’t forget to send in your birthday wishes for your favourite singer too!
