21 HOTTEST FEMALE VOICES IN BOLLYWOOD THAT ARE UNCONVENTIONAL YET STUNNING Gone are the days when a single female playback singer ruled the charts. Thanks to changing times, music directors today are much more open to experimentation. Bollywood albums today boast of newer, more refreshing female voices, each different from the other. Female playback singers today are unconventional and yet brilliantly unique in their own ways. Here\u2019s presenting to you a list of 21 female voices from recent times that we absolutely love, in no particular ranking. Go on, find your favourite! 1. Kanika Kapoor From \u2018Baby Doll\u2019 (Ragini MMS 2) to \u2018Lovely\u2019 (Happy New Year) to \u2018Chittiyan Kalaiyaan\u2019 (Roy), Kanika Kapoor seems to be the new sure shot formula for a song\u2019s success. The peppiness in her voice makes her a top favourite amongst the audiences. And with the much recent, badass track \u2018Chhill Gaye Naina\u2019, there\u2019s no doubting her versatility either. 2. Neha Bhasin The natural sensuality in her voice, the heaviness, the expression \u2013 there can be nothing sexier than Neha Bhasin singing. Be it the intimacy in \u2018Kuchh Khaas Hai\u2019 (Fashion) or the rebellion in \u2018Dhunki\u2019 (Mere Brother Ki Dulhan) or the irresistible seduction in \u2018Assalam-e-ishqum\u2019 (Gunday), Neha Bhasin surely knows how to play with moods. The last one is definitely one of her most underrated songs. Listen to it now, if you already haven\u2019t! 3. Shefali Alvares You may have not heard her name as much as some of the others on this list, but we bet her tracks have always topped your party playlists. The wacky spunk in her voice is simply infectious, especially in songs like \u2018Tera Naam Japdi Phiran\u2019 (Cocktail), \u2018Party On My Mind\u2019 (Race 2), \u2018Subah Hone Na De\u2019 (Desi Boyz) and \u2018Badtameez Dil\u2019 (Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani). And if you still doubt her potential, go listen to \u2018O Gujariya\u2019 from Queen! \u00a04. Monica Dogra She\u2019s super hot, we all know. But what\u2019s hotter is that alluring voice of hers. Just one \u2018Dooriyan Bhi Hai Zaroori\u2019 (Break Ke Baad) was enough to sweep us off our feet. How we wish she sung for Bollywood more often! 5. Sneha Khanwalkar The young woman behind the brilliant background score in \u2018Gangs Of Wasseypur\u2019 who can give most successful music directors in the industry a run for their money, Sneha Khanwalkar is an even better singer. If there was one word that could describe her work as a singer, it would be wacky! From \u2018Kaala Rey\u2019 to \u2018Teri Keh Ke Lunga\u2019 to \u2018I Can\u2019t Hold It Any Longer\u2019, Sneha Khanwalkar never ceases to surprise us with her knack for the craziest, most bizarre songs ever. For her originality and uniqueness, MensXP applauds Sneha Khanwalkar! 6. Neha Kakkar Neha Kakkar \u2013 the voice behind the insanely popular \u2018Sunny Sunny\u2019 and the song the whole nation is tripping on \u2018Manali Trance\u2019. And, the best part is, apart from a feisty singer, she\u2019s one hell of an entertainer as well. Don\u2019t believe us? Watch her selfie videos on Facebook! 7. Shalmali Kholgade The more you say about this powerhouse of talent, the less it is. Sexy yet chic, Shalmali is a rare combination of sophistication and flamboyance. She\u2019s probably the only singer today who gives a peppy edge to even the soppiest romantic songs. From the seductive \u2018Lat Lag Gayi\u2019 to the celebratory \u2018Balam Pichkari\u2019 to the mischievous \u2018Daru Desi\u2019, this girl never fails to surprise us. 8. Sona Mohapatra Strong yet delicately feminine, deep yet resonant, urban yet ethnic, words alone cannot describe Sona Mohapatra\u2019s impeccable voice. There\u2019s a raw appeal to every note she strikes that holds your attention throughout, be it songs like \u2018Naina\u2019 (Khoobsurat) and Ambarsariya (Fukrey) or \u2018masala\u2019 numbers like \u2018Bedardi Raja\u2019 (Delhi Belly) and \u2018Daav Laga\u2019. And, that\u2019s not even her best work! Listen to her albums and you\u2019ll be a fan for life. Also, to remind you, that super catchy jingle for Close Up, \u2018Paas Aao\u2019, was also sung by none other than Sona. 9. Shilpa Rao Listening to her croon to beautiful compositions like \u2018Manmarziyan\u2019 (Lootera), \u2018Khuda Jaane\u2019 (Bachna Ae Haseeno), and \u2018Anjaana Anjaani\u2019 (Anjaana Anjaani) is literally therapeutic. And then, there\u2019s of course a whole new side to her personality that gets unleashed in songs like \u2018Ishq Shava\u2019 (Jab Tak Hai Jaan) and \u2018Malang\u2019 (Dhoom 3) making you wonder if it is really the same singer! 10. Neeti Mohan Don\u2019t go by those cute looks, Neeti Mohan\u2019s voice has a totally different personality of its own. The endearing flirtatiousness in her voice, the powerful throw, and the spunky attitude is hard to escape, be it the playful \u2018Tune Mari Entriyan\u2019 (Gunday), the girly \u2018Jiya re\u2019 (Jab Tak Hai Jaan), the loud and upfront \u2018Galat Baat\u2019 (Main Tera Hero) or the spunky \u2018Bang Bang\u2019 (Bang Bang). 11. Anushka Manchanda Anushka is full of life and her voice emits that energy. The sexy voiceovers in \u2018Dance Basanti\u2019 (Ungli) and chartbusters like \u2018Dum Maaro Dum\u2019 (Dum Maaro Dum) aren\u2019t enough; she displays a whole new peppy side to her personality in the title track of \u2018Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu\u2019. Her voice always brightens up the mood! 12. Aditi Singh Sharma It took a while for her to set her foot in Bollywood but man, she\u2019s become a rage! Ever since she sang \u2018Chhoomantar\u2019 (Mere Brother Ki Dulhan), all her songs like \u2018Offo\u2019 (2 States), \u2018Dhoom Machale\u2019 (Dhoom 3) and the much recent \u2018Sooraj Dooba Hai\u2019 (Roy) have been super hits! 13. Rekha Bhardwaj In an industry ruled by the likes of conventionally girly-voiced Alka Yagnik and Shreya Ghoshal, Rekha made her own mark. Her slightly nasal tone teases you into an unusual rustic seduction that you cannot fight. The maturity in her voice adds to the charm. There\u2019s a distinct identity to all of her songs like \u2018Judai\u2019 (Badlapur), \u2018Phir Le Aaya Dil\u2019 (Barfi), \u2018Kabira\u2019 (Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani) and \u2018Darling\u2019 (7 Khoon Maaf). 14. Monali Thakur In an industry where it takes nothing to get typecast, Monali Thakur carved a niche for herself as a versatile young talent. She proved she can pull off a \u2018Sawar Loon\u2019 (Lootera) with as much finesse as the sensual \u2018Zara Zara Touch Me\u2019 (Race). And, of course, we cannot possibly forget the super raunchy \u2018Aga Bai\u2019 (Aiyyaa). 15. Aastha Gill Unabashed, bold and super sassy \u2013 all it took was one \u2018Abhi Toh Party Shuru Hui Hai\u2019 for Aastha Gill to win our hearts! Now that she\u2019s had a promising start, we hope she has more chart busters lined up! 16. Bhoomi Trivedi To match up to Priyanka Chopra\u2019s sex appeal is no child\u2019s play but Bhoomi Trivedi did a superb job with \u2018Ram Chahe Leela\u2019. And we\u2019re sure PC would agree too! If her debut was this kickass, we just cannot wait for more! 17. Jasmine Sandlas While most female singers stick to the coy, feminine tone, this badass went all out there and stole Honey Singh\u2019s limelight with some loud and unabashed singing in \u2018Yaar Na Miley\u2019 (Kick), and that\u2019s a huge feat. Hate her or love her, you just cannot ignore her. 18. Shweta Mohan The fact that A.R. Rahman signed her on for a few tracks in \u2018Guru\u2019 and \u2018Raavan\u2019 speaks volumes about her talent. There was an unignorable sensuality in her melodious voice in \u2018Yun Hi Re\u2019 (David). It is sad that such a great song largely went unnoticed. 19. Samira Koppikar Singing alongside Arijit Singh and making your presence felt is no piece of cake. But with that unconventional yet stunning voice, Samira Koppikar not only matched up to Arijit\u2019s charm, she took the seduction to a whole new level in \u2018Aaj Phir Tumpe\u2019! 20. Aditi Paul Aditi Paul became the voice behind Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh\u2019s steamiest moments in Goliyo Ki Ras Leela Ram Leela with the song \u2018Ang Laga De\u2019 and proved that a woman can be sweet and sexy at the same time. 21. Akriti Kakkar She has finally struck the right chord with the audiences with the young and peppy \u2018Saturday Saturday\u2019 (Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania) and we hope there\u2019s no looking back anymore.
