Celebrating Celebrity Birthdays!
Happy Birthday Shreya Ghoshal & Atif Aslam!
Celebrating two of my favorite singers of the Indian Film Industry today. The two have grown as singers in the industry and have made their mark.
Shreya Ghoshal started off by winning the Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Contest as an adult and her Bollywood playback singing career begun with 2002 film Devdas. She has been recognized with multiple awards and nominees for her talent in singing. Four National Film awards in Female Playback Singing, over fifteen Filmfare nominations and seven or more Filmfare awards. Her voice has not only spread across India but all around the world by her Live Concert in 2010 and in 2012. Luckily enough she has appeared once in 2010 here in the triangle and also in Charlotte, NC – 2012. I had the opportunity in getting VIP seating and backstage passes to meet the talented female playback singer, Shreya Ghoshal.
Atif Aslam, a voice I have grown to love. He is originally a Pakistani Pop Singer and film actor. He has released three private albums in the years of 2004-2007. Still today he is a pop-star in Pakistan. His first Bollywood debut song featured in the 2005 film Woh Lamhe. The song became a hit and so did his voice! In 2008 he had another to great hits, Pehli Nazar Mein and Bakhuda Tumhi Ho. He has continued to sing at least one song in one Hindi film every year since. He as well has had many live concerts and tours. He’s a growing singer in both the Indian and Pakistani film industry and is extremely successful.
Interesting enough the two share the same birthday and born in the same year. Another thing they both share together is a beautiful song from the 2012 Hindi Film Tere Naal Love Ho Gaya – Piya O Re Piya. Surprisingly enough, this is one of my most favorite Hindi Songs!
