After the sell-out success of the Celebrating 100 Years of Bollywood Tour with Shreya Ghoshal in April/May, it�۪s now the turn of the Diva of Bollywood ��� Sunidhi Chauhan.
Ask any Bollywood music fan to name their favourite singer currently, and it won�۪t be long before the name of Sunidhi Chauhan��enters the conversation. Chauhan��has evolved into perhaps one of the most iconic and popular vocalists on the live circuit and Bollywood scene. Having consistently been associated with hit songs for over 15 years, it�۪s no surprise that Chauhan��has amassed a huge fan following.
For most child prot̩g̩es fame is a very difficult thing to handle but Chauhan��has handled it very gracefully. She began to sing at the age of four and was discovered by a local TV anchor. She shot into prominence through winning a talent hunt show, in which she sang the most difficult Ragas in an off-hand way. She further honed her skills by training under Kalyanji (one half of the Kalyanji-Anandji music director duo) and was the lead singer in his Little Wonders troupe.
Her big break came with the popular song ‘Ruki Ruki Thi Zindagi’ from the film ��Mast�۪ )(2000). Chauhan��broke through the clutter with her bold, husky voice and has now gone onto establish herself as one of the most powerful singers in Bollywood. Internationally, she has collaborated with Enrique Iglesias, on a track called ‘Heartbeat’ which was featured in his album ��Euphoria�۪.
A live performer par excellence, she’s often touted as the ���Queen of Item Numbers�, with mass favorites like ‘Beedi’ and ‘Sheila Ki Jawani’ to her credit. She has showcased her musical variations by making the masses fall in love with the romantically intense ��Ishq Sufiyaana�۪ and ��Be Intehaan�۪. ��Chauhan’s��effervescence and dynamism has stirred all music fans and today she is rightly known as the modern-day Asha Bhosle.
The forthcoming UK Tour 2013 coincides with 100 Years of Bollywood and this landmark will be celebrated via a special tribute to the legends by Chauhan. The tour will culminate with the singer’s��debut at the prestigious Royal Albert Hall on Friday 27th September 2013.
