Sunidhi Chauhan, happy birthday!

The Bollywood singing diva turns 29 today

Born on August 14, 1983, Sunidhi is the most sought-after singer in Bollywood. 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. Married to childhood friend and music composer Hitesh Sonik and labelled a versatile singer, Sunidhi has reached enviable heights in the cluttered place called Bollywood. 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. Currently the singer is seen giving her verdict as a judge on the singing reality show Indian Idol 6, along with Asha Bhosle, Anu Malik and Salim Merchant. And even though she croons once in a while on the show, we are greedy for more. We hope she continues entertaining us by lending her voice to some more mind-blowing numbers. We wish the singer all the best of luck!
