She is a fresh yet celebrated artiste of B-Town. The name might sound new, but it is her voice that is heard behind various blockbuster tracks including "Titli" from Chennai Express and "Zehnaseeb" from Hasee Toh Phasee. Despite
being young in age compared to the rest of her contemporaries, she has managed to make a name for herself in the music industry in a very short span of time. Put your hands together as BollyCurry takes you on a mini journey of the beautiful Illuminated Artiste, Chinmayi Sripada.

Sripada is not only a singer by profession; she is the founder and CEO of a local translation company and works as a voice actor cum singer in South Indian films, the industry she hails from before joining Bollywood. After winning Sun TV's singing competition Saptasawarangal, Sripada became a household name and was given the opportunity to work under the legendary music composer, A. R. Rahman.

No soon, Sripada became a leading playback singer in the South Indian industry and quickly followed it with her next big move to Bollywood. Her debut tracks were both from the movie Guru in 2007 - "Mayya Mayya" and "Tere Bina".

Thereafter, Sripada returned to her South Indian line of music until 2013 when her luck changed again. This time, she was back with a bang and there was no looking back. Bollywood's music industry embraced Srpiada with warm hands and one after the other, she delivered hit after hit. Without further delay, let's quickly take a sneak peak into Sripada's Bollywood playlist and appreciate her contributions in Bollywood.
