She may not be the most talented singer on Sa re.., Mouli is bagging heaps of viewer's vote. "As an American India, I feared people may not vote for me. However, I'm far ahead of my other female contestants" said Mouli.
Ms. Mauli Dave, 19, Gujju girl singing sensation is loaded with offers from both Bollywood and Tellywood. Recently, Mouli performed in Zee's Parivaar. However, Mouli has no intentions of acting in soaps but wants to shine on the big screen.
Viewers are often shocked when they hear Mouli as they wonder how an NRI girl can sing so well in Hindi.
She hasn't spent the best part of her life in the USA. Her family moved to US when she was eight years old.
