Good looks, good acting chops, and now good voices!

Sonakshi Sinha has joined the bandwagon of actors, who have put their singing voices on display!

The actress has recorded her maiden single Ishqoholic, and it won't be long before you hear this hip hop number composed by the Meet Bros.

While Sona's singing debut has got everyone excited, we look at actors, who have charmed us with their vocals skills in the recent times.

One of the most hard working stars in Bollywood, Ms Chopra has many skills as well.

Besides acting and being a fashion diva, PeeCee also has a successful singing career.

Her singles In My City and Exotic received amazing response in India. She then sang in two songs in her films, Mary Kom and Dil Dhadakne Do.

 

Shraddha Kapoor

Last year was rather fruitful for this Kapoor girl as she not only tasted commercial success with Ek Villain but the film also gave her recognition as a singer.

Shraddha sang the unplugged version of Galliyan and it became a chartbuster in no time. She showed her versatility as a singer in Haider and gave us Kashmiri folk song Do Jahaan.

 

Alia Bhatt

Like Shraddha, the Highway actress has also impressed the audience with her beautiful voice.

The Shaandaar heroine crooned the unplugged version of Samjhawan for her film Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania and wowed everyone, including industry folks.

Dhanush

This list would be incomplete with this South superstar. Well, he is the man behind the Kolaveri Di hysteria, which still hasn't faded away. 

Kolaveri Di is written and sung by Dhanush himself. The song was released in 2011 and within no time it became a chartbuster because of its quirky lyrics. 

The song featured in the film 3, which was directed by Dhanush's wife Aishwarya.

She is a dancing diva, who is an equally good singer. Remember the Kaahe Chhed song from Sanjay Leela Bhansali's magnum opus Devdas? Well, Madhuri crooned the number along with Kavita Krishnamurthy and Birju Maharaj.

And last year for her film Gualab Gang, she sang Rangi Saari Gulaabi along with her mother.

 

Aamir Khan

If the other two Khans can sing, then Aamir can do it as well. Who can forget Aati Kya Khandala from Ghulam, right?

But not many are aware of the fact that Khan has also sung the Bum Bum Bole song from Taare Zameen Par along with Shaan.
