Beginning her career at the mere age of 12 with the film Shastra, Sunidhi Chauhan has made her name in the list of top singers of the country. Hailing from New Delhi, Sunidhi Chauhan started performing at local events when she was only 4.
She went on to win the reality show ‘Meri Awaz Suno.’ Realizing that her skills need some polishing, she joined an academy for a while and subsequently worked as a background vocalist. In the year 1999 with the film Mast, her breakthrough came with the song Ruki Ruki Si Zindagi.
To bring her to the Bollywood industry, her father gave up his job. Initially facing many difficulties in settling in the hub of Indian Cinema Mumbai, the support provided by Sunidhi’s family helped her in becoming the star she is today.
No wonder she was offered to sing alongside Udit Narayan at the age of 12. Over the years, she has established her name as one of the most versatile vocalists in India. Her versatility is proven by her songs as well.
