Best birthday wishes ever is what BollyCurry is giving the singing sensations Shreya Ghoshal and Atif Aslam on their special day today.

Shreya Ghoshal is a name that needs no introduction. She was born on 12th March 1984 to Bengali parents, Biswajit Ghoshal, an electrical engineer by profession and Sarmistha Ghoshal, a post graduate in Literature.
Having achieved a milestone in her musical career, Ghoshal has just started her marital life with her childhood sweetheart Shiladitya Mukhopadhayaya on 5th Februray 2015. Blessed enough by the grace of the Almighty, her professional career got recognition when she came to Mumbai with her family in 1997. Ghoshal's mother gave her the first lesson of music when she was just four years old. At such a tender age she had already started learning Hindi classical music and Bengali vocal music.  This was the reason why despite being a Science student she was more inclined towards music and cultural activities during her college days.

She is a linguistic singer trained in various languages as well. These include Hindi, Bengali, Assamese, Telugu, Gujarati, Marathi, Tamil, Malayalam and Oriya. Ghoshal recorded her first song in Marathi for the cover version of "Ganraya Rangi Nachato".  Her first few albums were Bendhechhi Beena (1998), O Tota Pakhi ReEkti Katha (1999) and Mukhor Porag (2000), all in the Bengali language. In her teens, she was declared the winner at Sa Re Ga Ma three times; last one being the 200th episode in January 1999. The mentors/judges present were speechless after witnessing such a talent on-stage. This talent show paved way for Ghoshal's entry into Bollywood. Director-producer Sanjay Leela Bhansali was in search of an innocent voice for the playback of character Paro in the movie Devdas (2002). And Shreya Ghoshal was the perfect choice; he approached her and gave her the much needed wings to fly high in the sky of success and fame. She was only sixteen when she recorded "Bairi Piya" with musical maestro Udit Narayan, for the movie Devdas. She became a household name for her enchanting voice at such a young age. Her song "Sun Raha Hai Naa Tu" from the movie Aashiqui 2 (2013) and "Nagada Sang Dhol" from Goliyon ki Raasleel Ram-leela (2013) gained immense appreciation.

Countless awards in her baggage, she is the proud owner of numerous National awards, Filmfare awards and Filmfare South awards. Her first ever Bollywood song earned her the National Film Award for Best Singer Female. Shreya is privileged since the United States of Ohia declared 26th June as the Shreya Ghoshal Day for honouring her. Shreya Ghoshal has also managed to carve her name in the Forbes list of Top 100 Celebrities of India.
Atif Aslam, the man with a mesmerizing voice, a charming face and a physique to die for; is also turning a year older. Born as Muhammad Atif Aslam, he is a pop cum rock singer, a dancer and an actor by profession. He married the love of his life Sara Bharwana in the year 2013.

Aslam has managed to come to Bollywood industry all the way from Pakistan to charm Indian audiences and listeners. He made his debut with the Pakistani movie Bol (2011). Aslam has given several top romantic tracks for the movies and the pop albums in both the countries and he has graced few film songs by his on-screen performance for special tracks. His Bollywood list includes "Tere Bin", "Pehli Nazar Mein", "Aa Bhi Ja Sanam", "Piya O Re Piya", "Tu Mohabbat Hai", "Be Intehaa" and the most recent hit "Jeena Jeena" from the blockbuster movie Badlapur (2015) featuring Varun Dhawan on-screen.
