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’s probably the only singer today who gives a peppy edge to even the soppiest romantic songs. From the seductive ‘Lat Lag Gayi’ to the celebratory ‘Balam Pichkari’ to the mischievous ‘Daru Desi’, this girl never fails to surprise us.
