Career and rise to stardom 

In 1995, she won the Sangam Kala Group’s All India Light Vocal Music Competition in New Delhi, in the Light Vocal group at the sub-junior level. 

“Ganraj Rangi Nachato,” a cover of a Marathi song sung by Lata Mangeshkar, was Ghoshal’s first-ever recorded song. Bendhechhi Beena was her first studio album, published on January 1st, 1998, and featured 14 songs. 

When Ghoshal appeared in the 75th children’s special edition of Sa Re Ga Ma, she drew filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s eye. Bhansali’s mother was watching the concert and contacted him during Ghoshal’s performance, prompting him to offer her a role in his next film. Ghoshal’s voice, according to Bhansali, possessed the innocence required for Paro in Devdas (2002). 

She was named a “voice for the future” by Usha Uthup. Her vocal abilities have been acknowledged by veteran singers Vani Jairam and Manna Dey. Senior singers Alka Yagnik, Asha Bhosle, Lata Mangeshkar, Hemlata, Kavita Krishnamurti, and Kumar Sanu all voted for Ghoshal to be the best female singer of the generation. “If there are best all-time singers, Shreya will undoubtedly be among them,” Sonu Nigam said of Ghoshal. Her editor at Eastern Eye, Asjad Nazir, dubbed her the “undisputed queen of playback singing.”
