Shweta was presented this honour for her achievements in the world of music and performing arts. Her journey started after she won the title of Best Singer in North America by Sangam Kala group, following which she appeared on Indian television shows, and at the IIFA Awards alongside Salim-Sulaimain in 2011. Shweta debuted as a playback singer in Bollywood alongside Ayushmann Khurrana with the movie Hawaizaada. She also lent her voice for a Star Plus soap opera, Tere Sheher Mein.
Besides her contributions to the world of Indian entertainment, Shweta has collaborated with musicians in the West. She was contacted by The Piano Guys to create an Indian adaptation of Swedish House Mafia’s ‘Don’t You Worry Child,’ which has crossed 12 million views on YouTube. In addition, she has collaborated with Shankar Tucker for an original, ‘Mere Saajan Sun Sun.’
Shweta’s commitments have her shuttling between Toronto and Mumbai, and her shows take her around the world. This year, she was chosen to perform the Indian and Canadian National Anthems for Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s reception in Canada. She is also the youngest vocalist of Indian origin to have performed at the esteemed Carnegie Hall in New York.
