Shreya Ghoshal: Hit Songs
The queen of tune Shreya Ghoshal is ringing in her 34th birthday today. Shreya’s illustrious sing career spans over two decades. Her first studio album is Bendhechhi Beena, that was released on 1 January 1998, with 14 tracks. She made her sing debut in the Hindi movie industry with Shahrukh Khan starred Devdas, where she gave her voice to the iconic voice to more than 5 songs in the film namely, Silsila Ye Chaahat Ka, Bairi Piya, Chalak, Morey Piya, along with Dola Re Dola. Ghoshal bagged her first Filmfare Award for Best Female Playback Singer for Dola Re, along with her first national prize for Bairi Piya.
She has won four national awards and 6 Filmfare awards for her melodious voice. Shreya began the year on high with the raging success of her song Ghoomar in the film Padmaavat. When not creating Audience croon to his glittering tunes, Shreya is giving her fans a sneak peek into her ever-so joyful and amazing life. And what we’ve gathered, is the queen of the melody is rather a foodie. In fact, she has some excellent photo photography skills and pays a whole lot of attention to what’s on her own plate. Not only India, the singer does not shy away from looking for the best cuisines from around the globe and keeps her fans posted.
Early 2000 will be remembered as the last decade when Hindi movie music had that charisma and Shreya were a valuable part of that brigade. Shreya, along with Sunidhi Chauhan, gave vocals for virtually all the memorable tracks of the early 2000 s. Be it the iconic Bairi Piya, which won her first national award or Omkara’s O Saathi Re, Shreya’s voice has a certain soothing quality that strikes the emotional chords in only the right areas. Jab met Yeh Ishq Hai, which attracted another National Award to a singer, has Shreya voicing for Geet in the most joyous manner and the exact same joy may also be sensed in Guru’s Barso Re.
Shreya Ghoshal’s voice is not that frequently heard on the radio stations anymore. Obviously, she sings, but the number of songs has considerably diminished. The most famous track we heard in her voice was Padmaavat’s Ghoomar. As Hindi movie music fans, we miss her presence, but her classics make up for most of her absence. We would rather play Shor in the city Saibo, and bask in the memories which Shreya Ghoshal has given us.
