    Alisha Chinoy (real name Sujata Chinoy) was born on March 18, 1972. She is from Bangalore. Alisha got music as heritage. Her father was a classical singer. After she finished her studies, she tried to dabble in everything from Modelling to Theatre. She even worked for Adman Alyque Padamsee. She rechristened herself Alisha, after the birth of her cousin’s daughter who was also named Alisha. Alisha was passionate about Western music from her childhood, and imitated Madonna in front of her friends.

    Alisha Chinoy got a break through Bappi Lahiri, who was looking out for Western accented voice and stylish singing. He gave her a break in the film Dance Dance (1988), where she sang “Zooby zooby…” with panache. Alisha gave many more hits in the late 80s for many big films like films like Mr. India (1987), Ram Lakhan (1989) and Maalamaal (1988).

    Alisha however shot to fame with her pop albums, which became a rage all over the nation. Her most notable albums were Made in India, Babydoll, Lover girl, Madonna, Bombay girl and many more. In 90s, She sang many popular songs for Anu Malik like “Ruk ruk…” (Vijaypath), “My Adorable Darling…” (Main Khiladi Tu Anari), and a very controversial “Sexy sexy…” (Khuddar).

    However, Alisha Chinoy didn’t really succeed in becoming one of the top most singers of Bollywood. Alisha Chinoy was always there, though never at the top. In 2004, she gave a few hit songs like “Dil ko hazaar baar…” (Murder) and “Maine jisko chaha…” (Fida). Her come back song was “Kajra re…” from Bunty aur Babli (2005). The song was picturised on Amitabh Bachcha, Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwary Rai and went on to become the most watched music video in India that year. There was no looking back for Alisha Chinoy now.

    Ever since, she has sung many hit songs like “No Entry…” (No Entry), “Aaj ki Raat…” (Don), “Touch me…” (Dhoom 2) and “Its rocking…” (Kya love story hai). Now, Alisha Chinoy has regained her fan following. She won a Filmfare award for “Kajra re…” (Bunty aur Babli) in 2005. She has also been awarded the International billboard award and Freddie Mercury award for excellence in Artistery. Her song “Soulement Vous…” was given first rank at the International song festival Asia 2004. She judged Indian Idol Season 3 in 2007.
