Divya Kumar is an Indian singer who has appeared in a number of Bollywood films.
Divya comes from a musical family. Her grandfather, Pandit Shivram, was a composer for many regional films in India, and for V Shantaram’s films. Divya’s father, Bhagwan Shivram, is a musician and has recorded with RD Burman, Jatin-Lalit and Himesh Reshamiyya.
Divya has been singing since the age of eight, and even as a child he appeared in quite a few stage shows. He considered other professions, but her mother urged her to pursue a career as a singer. She appeared in many shows while in Kalyanji Anandji’s troupe, and more recently has worked with Sunidhi Chauhan, Shreya Ghoshal, and Javed Ali—all from the Kalyanji Anandji school of music.
His first Bollywood break was with Ram Sampath on the film Tutiya Dil, which he recorded at Ram Sampath’s personal studio. Since then, he has gone on to sing “Subhaarambh” for the film Kai Po Che, “Chanchal Man Ati Random” for the film Shuddh Desi Romance, and was featured on “Daingad Daingad” from the film Humpty Sharma ki Dulhania.
He also sang in the Farhan Akhtar starrer movie Bhaag Milkha Bhaag, singing “Maston Ka Jhund” (music by Shankar Ehsaan Loy). In 2013, he performed in Finding Fanny and Ghanchakkar (film), and took part in MTV India’s prestigious ‘MTV Coke Studio’ , which dedicated an entire episode to his hits. He has also taken part in MTV’s other prestigious musical show “MTV Unplugged”. He sang in a serial called Satrangi Sasural as a playback singer and the theme music composed by Sachin-Jigar.
Unknown to many, Divya did try to enter Indian Idol in 2010 but was rejected in the first round itself.
