Continuing our series on Hindi cinema celebs whose birthdays fall in a calendar month, here is a look at the March favorites.

Tiger Shroff / March 2

The most ‘virile’ of the post-Hrithik Roshan heroes, Tiger Shroff has consciously promoted himself as a fitness freak in real life and action hero in reel life. A darling with kids as well, Tiger Shroff is reaping both the advantages and disadvantages of this decision. He is now set to be seen in Ganapath—Part 1, a sci-fi actioner.

Shankar Mahadevan / March 3

Shankar Mahadevan has many facets to him, as he strides classical, film and Western music with equal elan. Part of the Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy team of composers with memorable scores such as Dil Chahta Hai, Kal Ho Naa Ho, Bhaag Milkha Bhaag, D-Day, 2 States and Bandish Bandits on the web, he is also known for his individual triumphs as singer, composer and even actor in Marathi cinema.

Shraddha Kapoor / March 3

Her birthday month has proved lucky for her. Seen after a gap of three years in Tu Jhoothi Main Makkaar in a new, va-va-voom avatar, Shraddha Kapoor has got a major fillip with the success of the film, though her only forthcoming film is Stree 2, which is yet in the pre-production stage.

Janhvi Kapoor / March 6

Among the finest talents from the latest faces in showbiz, Boney Kapoor’s and Sridevi’s daughter has the formidable acting genes of her iconic mother. Janhvi Kapoor is now setting one foot in the South as well with NTR 30, besides doing Bawaal and Bade Miyan Chote Miyan.

Anupam Kher / March 7

It’s 40 years since Anupam Kher started with a bang with Saaransh. The real-life Kashmiri Pandit has now already bagged two awards for his role in The Kashmir Files after proving his mettle at romance, comedy, villainy and dramatic roles both in India and abroad. For good measure, he has also been producer and director.

Shreya Ghoshal / March 12

The playback legend already has crossed 21 years in singing and proved her range and ability under several generations of composers in multiple languages and genres. Shreya Ghoshal remains the biggest name in playback now for over a decade.

Farida Jalal / March 13

Give her any role at any age and she shines—from girlfriend to sister to mother to grandmother, Farida Jalal has done it all with rare grace and spunk. A list of her greatest performances would occupy too much space here!

Aamir Khan / March 14

The perfectionist went horribly wrong last year and is taking a break before he hits the screen again. Aamir Khan remains the man who pioneered the 100 crore, 150 crore, 200 crore, 250 crore, 300 crore and 350 crore clubs in Hindi cinema. Beginning as a child actor, he hit gold with Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak as hero in 1988 and many more winners. Globally, he is best known for Lagaan and 3 Idiots.

Abhay Deol / March 15

He is always the different Deol, self-confessedly because he cannot do the normal hero template as well as uncle Dharmendra or cousins Sunny and Bobby Deol can. But the actor has tried to carve his own distinct niche and succeeded in drawing admiration from them.

Alia Bhatt / March 15

The Numero Uno today, even if motherhood is now her priority, Alia Bhatt, who has succeeded spectacularly as a producer with Darlings, now has four prized assignments in her kitty—Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani and her first international assignment, Heart of Stone, in post-production, and Baiju Bawra and Jee Le Zaraa in pre-production.

Alka Yagnik / March 20

The lady who took over the mantle of Queen Bee in playbackdom from the Mangeshkars has proved her mettle at music for over four decades now. Come Ek do teen char from Tezaab, Choli ke peeche from Khal-Nayak or the title-song of Kuch Kuch Hota Hai and many more, Alka Yagnik has made her name synonymous with film music for over 25 years.

Rani Mukerji / March 21

The powerhouse right from her debut film, Raja Ki Aayegi Baraat in 1996 to this month’s Mrs. Chatterjee Vs Norway, Rani Mukerji is famous particularly for choosing powerful characters like in Hichki, Mardaani and No One Killed Jessica.

Kangana Ranaut / March 23

Admittedly, she is known more now for her controversial statements and actions, but Kangana Ranaut can also do her job superbly, as Queen and the Tanu Weds Manu franchise have proved. Her fetish for not working with top heroes, however, has left her in a position where her career now looks like a gamble.

Emraan Hashmi / March 24

Emraan Hashmi has long gone past the stage of the lover-boy specializing in kisses. The only Mukesh-Mahesh Bhatt hero who has made a mark outside their home banner for him, he has never cared for an image and is now playing antagonist to Salman Khan in Tiger 3 after a common man (and fan)’s role in Selfiee.

Akshaye Khanna / March 28

This man can do wonders with every role he accepts—which show admirable variety. Border, Dil Chahta Hai, Deewangee, Humraaz, Hungama, Section 375 and Drishyam 2 all point to his incredible range, uncompromising approach to work and merging into every genre of performance, underscoring the fact that he remains in demand for a demanding role for over 25 years now.
