"'When I sang earlier, people thought it was Alka or Sadhna'...Singer Madhushree Bhattacharya, the voice behind Tum Bin Bataye, Mahi Ve, Kabhi Neem Neem and so on. At first, Madhushree Bhattacharya's name may not strike a chord, but mention 'Tum Bin Bataye' from Rang De Basanti or 'Kabhi Neem Neem' from Yuva, and you'll get the connection. The honey-coated voice that belongs to these songs is none other than that of Madhushree."
