BollyCurry is back once again with another entertaining
feature. This time we have brought you an article on Bollywood's well
followed, multi-talented divas! Divas who are not only high class
actresses but have also proved themselves to be good singers - when the
from being ranked as one of the top actresses, Kareena Kapoor, unknown
to many, has also play-backed herself in one of her very popular films.
Starting off her
singing career with an unofficial song in Kabhie Khushi Kabhi Gham
(2001), Kareena had lent her voice in the song "Rasiya" from her successful film Kurbaan
where she starred opposite beau, Saif Ali Khan. The song might have not
managed to top certain music charts, but Kareena's smooth and sharp
voice did make us think that she could carve a niche for herself in the
music industry as well!
versatile actress of her times, Sridevi has also tried her hand at
various dance numbers of the times gone by. She sang for the first time
back in 1989, when she gave her voice to the beautiful song "Chandani, O
meri Chandani" for the super-successful film Chandani. She has also lent her voice for various tracks in films like Kshana Kshanam; Garajana and Sadma. Who do you like better - Sridevi the singer or Sridevi the actor?
queen of Bollywood, as she was previously entitled, along with being a
brilliant actress has also lent her voice for numerous tracks. First of
them being "Saare Niyam Tod Do" from her movie Khubsoorat. After that, Rekha voiced herself in numbers for films like Ek Naya Rishta and Agar Tum Na Hote. The
timeless beauty did an exceptional job in the field of acting, there's
no denying that - but don't you think, she could have also sufficed in
Bollywood if she were a singer? What say?
off with her husky and attractive voice, Piggy Chops can emerge as a
seriously good singer as well. Starting off with a song for her
not-so-successful flick Barsaat - A Sublime Love Story, Priyanka's
smooth and melodious voice seemed to do all the justice to the soft
track. She's only sung in one song officially as for now, but she's been
seen humming the soulful "Tinka Tinka" from Karam at various occasions. Versatile acting or versatile voice, Priyanka seems to top all - don't you agree?
With exceptional acting skills and extra-ordinary dancing ones, this diva, err, this eternal diva
possesses a voice to die for. With the clarity and appropriate texture
in her voice, Madz doesn't stay behind in this department too. She first
sung, rather voiced for a track "Kaha Ched Mohe" from Devdas which
was written in a prose from where Madhuri had to rhyme some words, a
feat she surpassed exceptionally well. Back in 1998, she sang a track
for the film Wajood. Seems like Madhuri wanted to try her hand at every field...and the consequences aren't bad. Not bad at all!
was the first installment of the divas who have not only captured
millions of hearts with their splendid acting skills but have also done a
great job in the department of singing. Who was your pick? Make your
votes count...until the next time!
