A very talented singer, Anushka made her first move in the entertainment industry when she won the Coke Popstars contest in 2002. She became part of the first Indian girl band VIVA, whose members later split up. Anushka was also a VJ on channel V before moving to playback singing. Her big Bollywood break came when she sang the 'Golmaal' title song. She has, since then, had the opportunity of working with several top music composers including Pritam, Anu Malik, Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy and Salim-Sulaiman and among her most popular songs are 'Alisha' from 'Pyaar Impossible', 'By the Way' from 'Aisha' and, most recently, 'Mit Jaaye Gham' from 'Dum Maaro Dum'.
