    Here goes my first Arimugam: Famous Play back singer Shreya Goshal



    Ghoshal who started her career at the turn of the millennium in 2001 has already received the National Award for Best Play Back Singer from President Kalam and bagged the prestigious Filmfare Award two years in a row for 2002-2003 which makes her the undisputed leader of the filmi music world.

    The shy, coy singer actually shot to dizzy heights of fame with her signature song ‘’Dola re dola re’ from the box office hit Devdas. Her other hits include the sensational ‘Jadu hai nasha hai’ song from ****, which she said was recorded when she was only seventeen. “I was even more nervous when I heard that it was meant for the sensuous Bipasha Basu," Ghoshal said.

    Ghoshal sings in 18 different Indian languages. She gave the audience a taste of her talent when she sang in Bengali, (her mother tongue) and one in Tamil. The combo rendition of the all time great singing sirens Geeta Dutt (late), Latha Mangeshkar and Asha Bhosle wa the highlight of her performance.

    Here goes my second arimugam: Chinmayi



    She is creating waves in the South Indian music scene, having sung several hit numbers for leading music directors like A R Rahman, Vidyasagar, Yuvan Shankar Raja, Bharadwaj, Imaan, Dhina and Ramesh Vinayagam among others.

    Chinmayi is a versatile singer both in the classical mould (her forte is Ghazals, a rarity in Tamil Nadu) and in light music. Chinmayi's asset is her Tamil pronunciation, being a Tamil herself. Endowed with a sweet voice, she has honed her skills through hard work in learning Hindustani and 0.

    Her first film song, the title song in Kannathil Muthamittal took the industry by storm. It was a dream debut - a brilliant composition by Rahman and superbly picturised by Mani Ratnam and well enacted by Simran and Keerthana. She has sung a few more numbers for Rahman besides other leading music directors.

    Chinmayi has other talents as well. She can write well as she has shown in her column for Chennaionline on new restaurants in Chennai.

    My next arimugam: Karthik (Playback Singer)



    or young Karthik, it was a dream come true – to sing for superstar Rajnikant in his film Baba, that too for A R Rehman.

    It is not too often that a youngster gets opportunities like that. Karthik had sung a few songs earlier for Ilayaraja and also in 'Star' for Rahman. However, for Rajni and that too in the much-hyped film Baba was like reaching Mount Everest in your teens.

    Earlier, he was not too sure whether to sing or pursue an academic career. For a couple of years, thanks to his singer-friend Srinivas, he got an opportunity to meet Rehman and sing 'harmony' (which is more commonly known as chorus) for several songs.

    That was actually a good break and a good experience for him, says Karthik, since it prepared him for the serious world of music.

    He learnt Hindustani music and prepared himself for an extensive career in music.

    One day, he was surprised when Rehman called him and asked him to try out a couple of songs by singing the track for Baba. But Rehman did not give him false hopes. Rajni might have to agree. Rehman was in London and sent the song outline through the Internet. Karthik sang the track portion, and Rehman received it in London. Apparently, he liked it. Rehman later keyed in the music.

    Rehman recommended to Rajni that Karthik's voice be used. Karthik kept his fingers crossed. Rajni heard the song and liked the voice. “Let us give the youngster a boost”, Rajni seems to have said. He backed Karthik and gave the nod. Karthik was thrilled to hear that Rajni had okayed it and that he would sing two songs for the film.

    The success of 'Maya, Maya' and 'Sakthi Kodu' in Baba catapulted Karthik to fame. He is now a regular singer for the leading music directors including Rehman, Ilayaraja, Vidyasagar, Bharathwaj, Deva, Harris Jayaraj and so on. The list of hits is growing by the day. It is true to say that he is probably among the busiest male singers in the South today.

    Karthik Raja was the one who actually introduced him to Ilayaraja. It was a great experience for the young singer. However, he managed to impress the maestro. One of his best numbers for Ilayaraja was the hit, 'Oliyile Therivathu Deivathaiya' for 'Azhagi'.

    Karthik is among the few singers in the Tamil film industry whose mother-tongue is Tamil and can write the lyrics in Tamil. Among his other hit songs are 'Naenthukitten' in Star, 'Manjaikattu Maina', 'Aval Ulaga Azhagiye' in Lesa Lesa, and 'Maro Maro' and 'Girl Friend' for 'Boys'.

    The 'Boys' songs in particular marks another landmark in his career. The Rehman-Shankar combination is something that every singer would like. To get an opportunity to sing three songs in that film, the release of which is eagerly awaited, was a big thing, he feels.

    Though Karthik looks smart and good looking enough to be a model and a hero, he steadfastly refuses acting assignments. He He still pursues his academic career vigorously. He is doing MCA course now, despite being busy in the music arena. He is a God-fearing person and still believes he has a long way to go. He will certainly go far.

    Karthik still pursues his academic career and is doing the MCA course. Despite being busy in the music arena.

    He has come a long way but he is bound to go far and reach greater heights.

    List of hit songs of Karthik
    'Oliyile Therivathu' (Azhagi)
    'Naenthukitten Naenthukitten' or 'Aasai Dosai' (Star)
    'Manjakaattu Maina' (Manathai Thirudivittaay)
    'Thozha Thozha' (Kaadhal Samrajyam)
    'Theradi Veethiyile' (Run)
    'July Malargale' (Bhagavathy)
    'Maya, Maya' (Baba)
    'Sakthi Kodu' (Baba)
    'Girl Friend' (Boys)
    'Maro Maro' (Boys)
    'O Nanbane' (Dhil)
    'Sundari' (Kannathil Muthamittal)
    'Anna Saalaiyil' (Roja Koottam)
    'Aval Ulaga Azhagiye' (Lesa Lesa)
    'Buck Buck' (Parthiban Kanavu)
    'Moonrezhuthu' (Paarthale Paravasam)

    I like all these songs of Chinmayi

    Karthik is indeed a very good singer. I guess he also sang in the Saptha Swarangal competition or something similar to that. I like all his songs.

    s..GCB, karthik was in sapthswarangal competition. When he came for finals, he had to compete with Ranjith. And I guess finally Ranjith won the competition. Do u know Ranjith? he is a play back singer now. one of his popular song is Pudhu Kaadhal Kaalam idhu from pudhukotailirundhu saranvan.

    cheers.

    shy, as krish said, it is indeed Arunmozhi. The song you are talking about is Aathule Annakili. His first song was Naan Enbadhu Nee Allavo Deva Devi in Soorasamharam. He is basically a flute player and used to play for Ilayaraja.
