Early life[edit]

Babul Supriyo was born and raised in Uttarpara, a small town on the banks of the Hooghly river in West Bengal. He comes from a musical family and learnt the basic grammar of music from his grandfather, Banikantha NC Baral, a Bengali vocalist and composer. His singing talent became manifest early, as Supriyo won several inter-school and inter-college music compositions and performed regularly in All India Radio and Doordarshan since childhood.[3] He is an alumnus of Don Bosco Bandel and holds a Bachelor's degree in commerce from Calcutta University.

Career[edit]

After graduating from the Calcutta University in Commerce, he worked at Standard Chartered Bank. He quit his lucrative job at the multinational bank to pursue his first love for singing.[4] [5] He moved to Mumbai in 1992 to make a career in Bollywood. Kalyanji gave him a break, and took him to perform abroad at their live shows. He soon got noticed by other composers. Besides playback singing, he has also done several stage shows across the globe.[5] During the mid-nineties, he started making his presence felt in Bollywood.

Some of his popular Bollywood songs are "Dil Ne Dil Ko Pukara"(Kaho Naa... Pyaar Hai), "Pari Pari Hai Ek Pari" (Hungama), "Hum Tum" (Hum Tum) and "Chanda Chamke"(Fanaa). He is the anchor of the hit television show K for Kishore. Babul is also known for singing the opening themes of well known Balaji Telefilms serials. He has performed in many musical concerts around the world including USA, UK and Canada.

He contested in the 2014 Lok Sabha elections and is currently a member of parliament in the Lok Sabha from Asansol in West Bengal.[6] On 9th November 2014, he became the youngest minister to be included in the Narendra Modi government, and is the Minister of State(MoS) for Urban Development, Housing and Urban Poverty Alleviation.[7]
