New Delhi| Jagran Entertainment Desk: Shraddha Kapoor is not just a talented actress, but is also a fabulous singer. The Haider actress has carved a niche in the entertainment industry with her top-notch performances in films like Aashiqui 2, Chhichhore, Ek Villain and many others. The beautiful actress has turned a year older today, that is, March 3. So on the eve of her 34th birthday, we have brought to you some lesser-known facts about her:

* Shraddha Kapoor is related to Lata Mangeshkar

There was a time when the one song that was stuck on everyone's mind was 'Galliyan' from the film Ek Villain. That song marked the debut of Shraddha in playback singing, and that voice surely reminded us of the "Nightingale of India" Lata Mangeshkar. But, did you know Shraddha is related to Lata Mangeshkar's family? Yes, you read that right, so without further ado, let us tell you, how she is related to Lata Mangeshkar.

Pandit Pandharinath Kolhapure is the first cousin of Lata Mangeshkar, and he is the maternal grandfather of Shraddha. The actress often addresses Lata Mangeshkar and Asha Bhosle as Ajji.
