It has been rightly said that one doesn't get older on their birthdays, but only better. Keeping these wise words in mind, we at BollyCurry come together to celebrate the birthday of two extremely popular members of the film fraternity, actress-singer Alia Bhatt and composer-singer Yo Yo Honey Singh!

Born to acclaimed film-maker Mahesh Bhatt and his actor-director wife Soni Razdan on the 15th of March, 1993, Alia Bhatt was born into one of the most illustrious film families of the nation. She happens to be the step-sister of acclaimed actor-director Pooja Bhatt, the niece of directors Vikram and Mukesh Bhatt, and cousin to popular actor Emraan Hashmi.
 
Bhatt has gone on record to say that she's been wanting to step into the world of glitz and glamor for as long as she can remember. Her first silver screen outing, unbeknownst to many, was actually in the film Sangharsh (1999), where she played the younger version of Preity Zinta's character, Preet Oberoi. She then stayed away from films till she finished her schooling, post which she was signed for Karan Johar's directorial venture, Student of the Year (2012) as the female lead. Starring alongside then debutantes Varun Dhawan and Sidharth Malhotra, the movie went on to perform well at the box office and propelled the trio into instant stardom, but sadly, Bhatt's work was not noticed or appreciated.
 
Her second outing was with Imitiaz Ali's Highway in 2014, where she played the role of a child abuse victim, who ends up falling in love with the ruffian who kidnaps her. The movie was an instant success, and Bhatt proved to the audiences that she was not just another pretty face! 2014 proved to be an extremely successful year for the young lass, as she went on to star in two more blockbusters - 2 States alongside Arjun Kapoor and Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania alongside her Student of the Year co-star, Varun Dhawan. These films earned Bhatt a lot of adulation from both the critics and audiences alike, and she received multiple nominations and awards for her impeccable portrayal of the characters she essayed in these movies, including the prestigious Filmfare Award for Best Actress (Critics), for her role in Highway.
 
Bhatt has also ventured into playback singing, and lent her voice to the soothing "Sooha Saha", composed by A.R. Rahman. Her beautiful rendition of the song quickly became a rage, and she followed it up by crooning for "Samjhawaan - Reprise" for Humpty Sharma ki Dulhania, which was also met with praise and acclaim.  Bhatt is next slated to be seen opposite Shahid Kapoor in Phantom Films' and Dharma Productions' upcoming venture, Shandaar, scheduled to release later this year.
 
Born as Hirdesh Singh, Yo Yo Honey Singh was born to a Sikh family in Hoshiarpur, Punjab in 1983. After growing up in Hoshiarpur, and moving to Delhi, Singh went on to study Music at the Trinity School, United Kingdom, where he was introduced to a number of Punjabi artistes. He collaborated with many of them, including the likes of Jaz Dhami, Jazzy B, and Diljit Dosanjh. His rising popularity found him many fans within Bollywood itself, and he soon forayed into the Bollywood music industry with the popular track, "Sharaabi" from Cocktail (2012). He went on to compose and sing many other songs in Bollywood, including the likes of "Lungi Dance", "Party All Night", "Sunny Sunny", "Chaar Botal Vodka", and "Alcoholic". Singh has also dabbled with acting, starring in a number of Punjabi movies, and also made an appearance in the Himesh Reshammiya debacle, The Xpose (2014). However, his acting was never as appreciated as his music and his work received mixed reviews from his critics. Regardless, Singh has risen to the pinnacle of success and has won many awards, national and international, for his work in the Punjabi Music Industry as well as Bollywood.
 
To celebrate this special day, we at BollyCurry, present a shandaar playlist of songs to party all night long, until auntie calls for the police.
