After working on the music video Pehla Nasha Chauhan married director and choreographer Bobby Khan (brother of choreographer and director Ahmed Khan) in 2002 at the age of 18.

Within two weeks Chauhan was signed to record the title track as well as Ruki Ruki Si Zindagi and Suna Tha for the film's soundtrack. She received the RD Burman award for the song Ruki Ruki Si at the Annual Filmfare Awards and was nominated for Best Female Playback Singer at the same ceremony.

Top 10 songs of Sunidhi Chauhan

Mehboob Mere – Fiza (2000)

Sunidhi Chauhan and Karsan Sargathiya performed Mehboob Mere. It was released on the Fiza soundtrack. Aa garmi le mere seene se (come feel the heat of my bosom) Sushmita declined to sing. She responded 'I won't just do it ' Ganesh Hegde told HuffPost.

 Anu Malik the composer had to rewrite the lyrics to 'aa narmi le mere aankhon se (bask in the softness of my eyes)'. Sunidhi considered the song came to her most naturally because it was recorded in 15 minutes. Chauhan was nominated for the second Filmfare Award for Best Female Playback Singer for Mehboob Mere.

Bhage Re Mann (Chameli)

The rain Kareena Kapoor Khan's motions Rahul Bose's brooding in a corner and Sunidhi Chauhan's gorgeous sensuous voice all contribute to the song's unique attractiveness and establish the tone of the film. Bhage Re Mann was released in the month of November (2003) Sunidhi Chauhan performed this lovely gem. Bhage Re Mann is from the film Chameli.

Crazy Kiya Re (Dhoom 2)

Crazy Kiya Re one of Sunidhi's most iconic songs truly drove listeners insane with its beats and the moves of Hrithik Roshan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. The beats are still catchy; you have to fight hard not to attempt Aishwarya Rai's twist dance motion in 'Crazy Kiya Re' while mouthing all the lyrics. Sunidhi Chauhan whose career was at its peak at the time adds such liveliness to this song.

Kamli (Dhoom 3)

Following the huge popularity of her song in Dhoom 2 it seemed obvious that she would return to Dhoom 3. For a long time Katrina Kaif's actions in the film Kamli occupied the 1 spot on playlists. Sunidhi Chauhan sings Kamli with music by Pritam and lyrics by Amitabh Bhattacharya. 

She made headlines when she won the Dadasaheb Phalke Academy Award for Best Singer (Female) for the blockbuster song Kamli from Dhoom 3. Sunidhi said while receiving the award Every song is difficult and Kamli was no exception. Since the song was for Dhoom 3 I gave it my all because singing for Yash Raj Films is an honour.

Sheila Ki Jawaani (Tees Maar Khan)

Sheila Ki Jawaani is one of the most well-known songs in Bollywood history. Sunidhi and Katrina got everyone dancing to their tunes and moves for this one. Sheila Ki Jawani is an Indian Hindi-language song performed by Sunidhi Chauhan and Vishal Dadlani in the 2010 Bollywood film Tees Maar Khan starring Katrina Kaif and Akshay Kumar. 

The music is by Vishal-Shekhar while the lyrics are by Dadlani and Shree Naeem Parkar of Harvit who first wrote the song in 1979 after getting married. Farah Khan the film's choreographer-director choreographed the steps and she went on to win the Filmfare award for best choreography.

Beedi Jalaile (Omkara)

Sunidhi Chauhan's other top-hit item number is Beedi Jalaile from Omkara. Bipasha Basu's thumkas were fantastic in the song but Chauhan's voice elevated it to new heights. She received the Filmfare Award for Best Female Playback Singer for this song. Bipasha Basu owes the enormous success of her item song 'Beedi' in 'Omkara' to playback singer Sunidhi Chauhan.

Also Sunidhi Chauhan once stated that her greatest IIFA award event took place in 2006 when she performed in Yorkshire. It was such a lovely mood what a gorgeous concert it was and I won that year for 'Beedi' (Omkara) and the whole vibe was just amazing she remarked.

Udi (Guzaarish)

Sunidhi Chauhan's song Udi from the film Guzaarish is a great melody and a perfect modern number. While Sanjay Leela Bhansali's music was fantastic Sunidhi Chauhan's calming vocals complemented the song well. Sanjay Leela Bhansali composed the music Shail Hada started the song and Sunidhi Chauhan concluded it. Udi is an absolute gem of a song from Guzaarish full of real emotions.

Yaaram (Ek Thi Daayan)

Every time Sunidhi Chauhan and Vishal Bharadwaj collaborated a timeless melody was formed. Yaaram is a love letter she writes to him and the most romantic proposal imaginable. Gulzar Sahab wrote it and you can now scale the heights of love it possesses. Sunidhi and Clinton Cerejo brought the track to life and created a memorable track. On the whole the album has been done to a high standard.

All five tracks are required to convey the story. Vishal Bhardwaj has been an excellent music director and he deserves praise. The music is pretty distinctive and will appeal to anyone looking for something different. The entire album is eerie inventive and edgy.


A previous film is Barfi. Everything about it is subtle and delicate. Sunidhi and Papon's song Kyon is about a blossoming relationship specifically one between two halves who are becoming one. This one isn't just for the morning; it's also a nice way to conclude the day.

 After talking about Kyon After a while I got to perform Kyon (Barfi 2012) and a few more songs that were distinct from what I was known for. So that image is no longer available.

But I do my best to avoid being typecast in the future. I strive to keep myself and my voice from sounding monotonous. I strive to sing a variety of songs to be versatile in the industry and to let people know that I don't sing the same type of songs Sunidhi explains.

Not exactly this ki sabko karna hai she was quoted as saying but certainly we were all instructed (to praise). That was the basic point. As a result I was unable to continue. I couldn't do what they asked so we parted ways. As a result I'm not judging any reality shows today.
