Anuradha Paudwal biography
playback singer in Bollywood in India.
She studied at Xavier's College in Mumbai (Bombay). She is married to Arun Paudwal, who worked with music director S. D. Burman for some time.
Anuradha's career started with the movie, Abhimaan, (starring Amitabh Bachchan and Jaya Bachchan).
In 1976, she got her break as a playback singer in the movie, Kalicharan, (which starred Shatrugan Sinha and Reena Roy). Her first solo was in the movie, Aap Beeti, (starring Hema Malini and Shashi Kapoor). Laxmikant-Pyarelal was the music-composing duo for that movie. She also occasionally sang songs which were composed by Rajesh Roshan (Des Pardes), Jaidev (Dooriyan, Laila Majnu), Kalyanji-Anandji (Kalaakar, Vidhataa), and Usha Khanna (Souten, Sajan Bina Suhagan).
Anuradha sang in a few Marathi movies some memorable numbers such as "Disate Majalaa" (in the movie, Ashtavinayak), "Raja Lalakaari", and "Kaalyaa Maatita Maatitaa".
She gained recognition when she rendered some exceptional numbers for the movie, Hero. (Laxmikant-Pyarelal was the music-composing duo for Hero.)
She collaborated with movie producer, Gulshan Kumar, and her success streak began with the movies, Lal Dupatta Malmal Ka, Tezaab, Ashiqui, and Dil Hai Ke Manta Nahin.
At her peak, Anuradha announced that thenceforth she would sing exclusively for the music company, "T-series", and concentrated on devotional songs and "cover-version" albums.
After about five years, she has restarted providing playback singing for movies, and some of her recent movie songs have been popular, including "Kismat Se Tum" (Pukar), "Akeli Hai Yeh Mis Khiladi" (Mr & Mrs Khiladi), "Zara Aankhon Se Kajal" (Hum Aapke Dil Mein Rehtein Hai), "Chaha Hai Tujhko" (Mann), "Jogiya"' (Deewane) and "Intezar" (Paap).
