Remember Viva? Here’s What Happened To The Members Of India’s First Female Pop Band

“Hum naye geet sunaye, hum naye range sajaaye,

Hum naye roop dikhaye tumhe”

In the new millennium, there was a new show. It was called V Popstars- a reality on Channel V, to find the best female singing talent in the country. The five winners of that talent hunt formed India’s first ever all-female pop band- Viva.

Their first song, “Hum naye geet sunaye”, captured the collective attention of the audience. It became a chartbuster in no time and you could see all the young women emulating Viva. Their singing abilities, combined with their raw sex appeal, made them commercially viable artistes.

But what happened later? What have the band members been upto since their split? Let’s have a look-

#1 Seema Ramchandani

She was the first one to quit the group. And after doing a few stage shows solo, she joined the Art of Living program and later even recorded a bhajan album.

But going by her recent pictures, she seems to be doing fine for herself, as she recently made it to the cover of a community magazine.

#2 Pratichee Mohapatra

The cute, cropped-hair girl Pratichee released her first solo album in 2005. From then on, she went missing, until she resurfaced recently, having sung for the film Angry Indian Godesses. Co-incidentally, her ex-bandmate Anushka Manchanda acted in the same movie.

She is the sister of playback singer Sona Mohapatra, and recently, she has made a few song covers on Youtube. But she clearly seems to have found the fountain of youth, as she still looks the same, doesn’t she?

#3 Mahua Kamat

The bubbly Mahua grabbed attention for her powerful vocals. Her spunk shone through, in every one of Viva’s songs. viva 5

However, time hasn’t been kind on her. Now married and a mother, she seems to be enjoying a blissful married life!

#5 Neha Bhasin

Much like Anushka, Neha Bhasin went on to have an enviable solo career. She’s sung in various successful movies, and has been a regular judge of reality shows. Talk about speaking from experience!

A regular on the stage show circuit, Neha still looks just as hot as she did in 2002.

Looking back at them, we do miss them even more. How about a reunion?
