Jaspinder Narula is a Punjabi singer[1] and Bollywood playback singer. She is also a Sufi music singer.

She shot to fame after the duet "Pyar to hona hi tha" with Remo Fernandes from the 1998 film Pyar To Hona Hi Tha for which she won the 1999 Filmfare Best Female Playback Award. The other notable films she has sung in include Mission Kashmir, Mohabbatein, Phir Bhi Dil Hai Hindustani and Bunty Aur Babli.[2] She is also a singer of Sufi music, as well as Gurbani and other Sikh religious music.[3]

In 2008, she won the title of India's Best Live Performer in the NDTV Imagine singing reality series, Dhoom Macha De (2008).[4][5]

Career[edit]

Jaspinder's career in singing began early. Her father Kesar Singh Narula was a music composer of the 1950s. Initially Jaspindar Narula kept away from film singing and specialised in singing bhajans and Sufiana compositions. She moved to Mumbai a few years later[6] at the advice of noted music director Kalyanji who heard her at the private gathering in Delhi and asked his son and music director, Viju Shah, to give her break in films like Master, Aar Ya Paar and Bade Miyan Chhote Miyan (1998).[7][8]

She excels in singing folk and devotional songs. She has lent her voice to record numerous music albums for a large number of successful Bollywood films like Dulhe Raja, Virasat, Mission Kashmir, Mohabbatein and Bunty aur Babli to name a few.

Personal life[edit]

She lives in Mumbai, and is married to a Canada-based Indian businessman. Narula did her schooling from Guru Harkishan Public School, India Gate, New Delhi and completed her B.A Hons in Music from Indraprastha College for Women, where she was admitted as a special case because she did not have Music as a subject in class 12th which was pre-requisite for admission in the course.[2] She finished PhD in Hindustani classical music from Delhi University in 2008.[5]

She joined Aam Aadmi Party in February 2014.[9]
