Anmoll Mallik, born on 5 February, is a playback singer and songwriter who works in Bollywood films.

Early life[edit]

Anmoll was born and raised in Mumbai. Daughter of the famous Bollywood music composer Anu Malik, her grandfather Sardar Malik hails from Kapurthala and on her mother's side she is of Karnataka Gowd Saraswat Brahmin ancestry.


She got her GCSEs at the Ecole Mondiale World School, Mumbai and then enrolled in the Dhirubhai Ambani International School, Mumbai to sit for the International Baccalaureate. Anmoll currently holds a BSc (Hons) degree from the University of Warwick, England, a premier educational institution. She graduated in Business, Film, and Computer Science. She has also completed a year at the USC School of Cinematic Arts, California, as a scholarship student. Anmoll has completed grades 1-5 in Music Theory [Piano] from the Trinity College London.

A constant attendee at her father's pitching and recording sessions, Anmoll has closely followed her father's work since the age of five. She began learning how to play the piano at the age of 7, and can also play the harmonium (her father's favoured musical instrument.) She claims her primary vocal education came from informal practice and observation of professional singers during their various recording sessions, taking tips and trying to match their vocal range. She is self trained in Western Classical music, and can also sing in French, Spanish, and Farsi. Due to this training her vocal range reflects versatility. While her Hindi hits have been party numbers, her Western singing is often compared to the vocal tone of Norah Jones[by whom?].



Anmoll began her singing career by lending her voice for the movie Biwi No.1. She went on to record her first vocal track at the age of 5. This was followed by other movies where Anmoll sang as a child artist, such as Mela and Badal.[1]

In the year 2006, director J.P.Dutta cast her as the singer for lead actress Aishwariya Rai in the movie Umrao Jaan. Her next release was the song Chal Mera Hath Pakad Le from the Satish Kaushik movie Teree Sang. During the film's pre-release the song generated a huge buzz after Anmoll's impromptu live performance on the widely watched music reality show Indian Idol.[2]

At the age of 16, Anmoll sang "Talli" from the movie Ugly Aur Pagli, a fusion of grunge and rap music. The song debuted at the No.1 position and remained the top dance song for that year.[3]

Anmoll's discography includes various popular songs such as Suno Suno from Gali Gali Chor Hai,[4] "Big Fat Indian Wedding" from the movie Yeh Jo Mohabbat Hai, "Ek Mulaqat" from the movie Sonali Cable. She also sang the Western Version of OLD SCHOOL GIRL from the movie Tanu Weds Manu Returns in 2015.[5] Recently Malik sang "Time Lagaya Kaiko" in Welcome Back.[6]

In October 2015, her first indie single as a singer, Lamhein, an official adaptation of Coldplay's Paradise, was released under EMI Records India. The music was recreated by her father, Anu Malik, and the lyrics were penned by Manoj Muntashir. A music video, directed by Mohit Suri, featured Anmoll and Mohit Marwah.[7]


After her graduation from university, Anmoll released the English single 'The Graduation'. The song has been composed, written and sung by her. It was an experimental release by India's premier Bollywood portal Bollywood Hungama and was only released online.
