There was a time when the actor's job was to act but gone are those days. Today some of the most established actors don't mind lending their voice to a song and, surprisingly, some of them have turned out to be very good. Let's take a look at these 10 actors who also have sung in the movies starring them.
No list of singing actors is complete without Ayushmann Khurrana. When it comes to singing, the actor needs no introduction. His "Paani Da" from 'Vicky Donor' was a huge success. Later, he sang in almost all his movies like Badhaai Ho, Andhadhun, Article 15 and more with the latest being Mere Liye Tum Kaafi Ho from Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan.
We first heard him singing "Chandi ki daal par" in 'Hello Brother' (1999) and then "Hangover" in 'Kick' (2014). After a gap of almost 15 years, we must admit he is a promising singer. After that, he sang multiple songs all of which were a hit. Some of his best songs are Main Hoon Hero Tera (Hero), Jag Ghoomeya (Sultan) and Baby Ko Bass Pasand Hai (Sultan).
This star of the millennium has proved his mettle in singing as well. How can one forget the iconic Rang Barse sung by him in the movie Silsila (1981) which after 3 decades still remains the most played song at Holi! Big B has also sung in several other movies such as Baabul, Kabhie Khushi Kabhie Gham, Bhootnath and Wazir.
This producer-director-actor also tried his hand in singing with his acting debut "Rock On" (2008), in which he lent his voice to five songs and all of them became a huge hit. Farhan has a truly unique voice. His songs have gone on to become chart toppers. Rock on, Senorita and Toh Zinda Ho Tum have been permanently burnt into our memories. He just makes it look so simple.
Shraddha Kapoor came to fame after her amazing performance in Aashiqui 2. And soon after, she took up singing, voicing a duet with Ankit Tiwari, the singer of Sun Raha Hai Tu from the same. After that she released the hit track Galiyan with Ankit Tiwari and never stopped. Some of her latest music are Galliyan, Sab Tera, Sun Raha Hai Na Tu, and many more.
This little pataka exploded onto the big screen with Karan Johar’s Student of the Year—and with each subsequent film, she continues to prove that she deserves to be in the big leagues. Bhatt sang a reprised version of Rahat Fateh Ali Khan’s original song, Main Tenu Samjhawan ki in her romantic comedy, Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhaniya and Sooha Saha in the Imtiaz Ali hit, Highway.
Beauty queen, award-winning actress, international superstar, producer, and singer—Priyanka Chopra is undoubtedly a rockstar! She released her singles ‘Exotic’ and ‘In my City’ which went on to become great hits. After that, Chopra has sung playback for her films Mary Kom and Dil Dhadakne Do.
The actor showed his singing skills with a tapori style song Aati Kya Khandala from his film Ghulam. The song became an instant hit among the youth. Mr. Perfectionist`s perfection was very clearly visible in his singing attempt too!
Many would be surprised to know that Hrithik Roshan lent his voice to a beautiful song from his 2010 film `Kites`. The song titled `Kites In The Sky` was sung by Hrithik and Suzanne D`Mello. The actor also sang a chartbuster `Senorita` for his much acclaimed film `Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara`.
Not many people know that the dancing diva of Bollywood crooned for her superhit film Devdas. The song titled Kaahe Chhed Mohe was a beautiful slow number. The Dhak-Dhak girl also sang a song Rangi Saari Gulaabi with her mother Snehlata Dixit in the film Gulaab Gang.
