In this edition of BollyCurry's 'Illuminated Artiste Of The Month', we bring to you someone who is relatively new to the music industry, yet has managed to establish herself as one of the best playback singersof recent time. We are talking about none other than the 2012 Filmfare Award winner, Shalmali Kholgade.

This beautiful Indian singer-cum-songwriter hails from Mumbai, but she hasn't restricted herself to Hindi Cinema. She has also showcased her talent in Tamil and Marathi Cinema, and has done a few numbers in English as well. Still wondering who she is? Kholghade is the talented voice behind various blockbuster songs including her debut track "Pareshaan" (Ishaqzaade), for which she received her very first Filmfare Award in 2012. Upon its release, the track began topping music charts across India, and Kholgadhe was pronounced as one of the most promising singer of tomorrow by a majority of the film critics.

There has been no looking back for this lass since then. The first track to be declared a hit in 2013 was Jacqueline Fernandez's party number "Lat Lag Gayee" (Race 2), sung by none other than Kholghade. In the same year, Kholgadhe gave other back-to-back hits including "Balam Pichkaari" (Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani), and the title track of Shuddh Desi Romance.

Even though Kholghade has been in the industry for only two years, she has numerous popular songs to her credit. Below is a short playlist of her songs (in no particular order):

Our best wishes are with Shalmali Kholgade, and BollyCurry hopes that she continues to share her immense talent with the world for decades to come.
