Bollywood has an array of stars who are equally talented at singing
as they are at emoting on-screen. This includes Priyanka Chopra who has
already released an international pop album, Ayushman Khurrana who is
an accomplished lyricist and composer and Shruthi Hassan who recently
made her Bollywood playback debut with "Joganiyan" in Tevar
BollyCurry brings you a list of a few other B-town actors and actresses
who can join this multi-talented lot, owing to their singing abilities.
a deep baritone as one of his signatures, it is a tad bit surprising
that Sidharth Malhotra is yet to venture into playback singing, at least
occasionally. Malhotra possesses a voice that would be perfect for
soulful songs in particular. This was evident from his performances of
the song "Teri Galiyan" during the promotional runs for his movie Ek Villain (2014),
including one on Jhalak Dikhla Ja (Colors). Malhotra is a die-hard
Madhuri Dixit fan and even went onto claim while on the sets of a TV
show that he would sing only for the Dhak Dhak girl. Hence, it seems the
only hope for us to see him venture into playback singing would be if
he lends his vocal cords to a Madhuri Dixit Nene number.
Padukone, the model-turned-actress may very well have the singing chops
to one day become actress-turned-singer from what we have seen so far.
She has crooned to soft and melodious tracks such as "Khuda Jaane" from Bachna Ae Haseeno (2008) and "Titli" from Chennai Express (2013),
while on the promotional rounds for these movies. With a little formal
training to help her get the basics right, it is certain that Padukone
has the talent to get it right in the recording studio.
Singh rates himself as a good rapper, and his talent is evident from
the attempt showcased in the peppy number "Aadat se Majboor" in Ladies vs Ricky Bahl (2011). Singh has always expressed his desire to learn more about music. While at the sets of his recent release Kill Dil (2014),
he was able to pick up few lessons on musical notes from co-stars Ali
Zafar and Parineeti Chopra. The beautiful actress Amrita Rao recently
quipped that Singh reminds her of another actor-singer Kishore Kumar. We
hope that he would follow in the great artist's footsteps and succeed
in the pursuit of becoming a singer.
Sinha is another Bollywood diva who should try her hand at playback
singing. Though she sung a few lines in the song "Let's Celebrate" from
the movie Tevar (2015) and also for the Hindi version of Rio 2
(2014) , Sinha has expressed reluctance to continue her stint with the
microphone. However, at the recently held pre-wedding ceremony of her
brother, she took to singing again and was complemented by guests
including the ace designer Manish Malhotra. We hope that this her the
needed push and that she chooses to take up singing more often.
the other actors mentioned, Parineeti Chopra has had formal training in
music and also holds a bachelor's degree in it. Her excellent singing
skills were featured in the short film Dor (2013) by a
renowned film training institute. After her elder cousin Priyanka
Chopra's spectacular debut in pop music, the younger PC too has stated
her ambitions on a similar vein. As someone who has time and again
asserted her love for singing, it is certain that it wouldn't be too
long before she becomes a full fledged Bollywood songstress.
many young starlets like Alia Bhatt and Shraddha Kapoor having already
taken the plunge into music, it would be a treat for the fans to have
many other talented stars get into the song recording studio. If there
are any other actors who should join this list of potential singers,
