Is Dhvani Bhanushali The New Neha Kakkar? All You Need To Know About The 'Vaaste' Singer

Singer Dhvani Bhanushali’s song Vaaste became a huge hit on YouTube with over 400 million views in the last three months. Dhvani has become a household, or should I say an earhold (if that’s a thing) name for music lovers.


Currently, the vasste singer has been trending all over social media because of her latest song, Psycho Saiyaan from the fantasy-mystery film Saaho. Why? Well, she has sung the song in four regional languages including Hindi, Malayalam, Tamil and Telugu in the Shraddha Kapoor and Prabhas starrer film.

But lately, it feels like every other song on YouTube is by Dhvani. She is releasing her own albums, playback-singing Bollywood numbers as well as voicing old remixes by the minute. One might say she is the ‘new Neha Kakkar’ who also had a phase in 2018 with almost all of her songs ruling the charts back-to-back.

So, here’s everything you need to know about the rising singing sensation, Dhvani Bhanushali.

Who is Dhvani Bhanushali?


Dhvani Bhanushali Age, School & Family

Born on June 2nd, 1998 in Mumbai, Dhvani is a 21-year-old Indian model-turned-singer. She started singing when she was 13 and participated in her school’s choir group. She has done her schooling from a private school in Mumbai and graduation in Business Management and Entrepreneurship from HR College of Commerce & Economics.

We have reason to believe Bhanushali's father might just be the inspiration behind her grad course in college. Did you know Dhvani is the daughter of Vinod Bhanushali, President of Global Marketing & Media Publishing at T-Series? She also has a younger sister named Diya Bhanushali.
