Bollywood's playback singer Shreya Ghoshal, who has many music accolades to her credit, has turned a year older today. Her career began early in life when she won Zee TV’s Sa Re Ga Ma Pa singing reality show. Shreya’s first studio album, Bendhechhi Beena, was released in 1998 and included 14 tracks. The high point of her career was when she made her Bollywood playback singing debut with Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Devdas and received a National Film Award for it (Best Female Playback Singer).
On the special occasion of her birthday, check out these 5 Shreya Ghoshal songs that will stay with us forever.
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!
