Early life[edit]

She is the daughter of composer Loy Mendonsa of the Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy trio who compose music for Bollywood films.

Career[edit]

Her song "Khaabon Ke Parinday" from the movie Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara took the airwaves by storm. The melodious, soft acoustic guitars, harmonicas and stiff jazz style drums make this an endearing song / beat to listen to.[5] Filmed on Katrina Kaif, this song has seen unsurpassed demand on airwaves. She has rendered a song in the 2013 Malayalam film Amen. She recently sang a song "Be You" for a Gurgaon based fashion and lifestyle e-commerce portal Jabong.com.
