Shreya was a just four when her parents noticed musical flair. She got her initial lessons in singing from her mother, Sharmistha Ghosal, who is a trained singer. Formal training was, however, taken up by Maheshchandra Sharma. After she won a couple of rounds in the Zee TV show, Sa Re Ga Ma, Sanjay Leela Bhansali noticed Shreya’s talent at the megafinals of the show and gave her a chance in Devdas. She was awarded the Best Singer (Female) for Bairi Piya at the fourth International Indian Film Academy Awards function, held in Johannesburg in May last year.

After that proposals to sing poured in by a dozen. She recorded for many music composers and some of them are, Main Hoon Na, Munnabhai MBBS, Khakee, Zaroorat, Baghbaan, Aitbaar, besides several Tamil and Telugu films.

Shreya, at 19, has made her place as the topmost female singers of Bollywood. The best part is that she can sing almost any kind of song as her voice has a lot of variation. She sang soft and classical songs for Devdas and seductive songs for Jism.
