The latest B-Town celeb to have been bitten by the singing bug is Shraddha Kapoor. She’s given her voice to the song “Galiyaan” in her recently released film Ek Villain. Gathering great feedback, her voice has been appreciated by one and all.

  1. Ranveer Singh

A self proclaimed ‘rapper’, Ranveer made use of his rapping skills in the song “Aadat Se Majboor” from Ladies Vs Ricky Bahl (2011) and needless to say, he had all the ladies swinging to his tunes.

  1. Shruti Hassan

Did you know that Shruti Hassan has been singing since the age of 6? Not only that, she’s sung & composed a number of songs down South too but Bollywood first witnessed her singing abilities with the song “Luck Aazma” in the movie Luck (2009).

  1. Ayushmann Khurrana

Ayushmann had already been singing before he forayed into movies but fame & recognition came to him with the song “Paani Da Rang” from Vicky Donor (2012). He not only sang, but co-composed the song too.
