How Jyoti and Sultana became 'Nooran Sisters'
The Nooran sisters were born in the musical family of Ustad Gulshan Mir, the son of Bibi Nooran, a renowned Sufi singer of the 70s era. Jyoti and Sultana developed a liking for music through their grandmother. Nurturing his daughters' interests, Ustad Gulshan Mir decided to give them formal music training, which carried on for more than one decade.
The musical instinct of Nooran sisters was noticed by Gulshan Mir when they were just 5 and 7 years old, respectively. He took them to music director Kuljit Singh, who in turn helped them to record their first ever song ‘Kulli’. Even at that age, when they had no formal training or practice they didn’t miss out any beat while performing on table and harmonium, moreover, they sang like professionally trained singers. Their talent was further noticed by a Canadian music promoter, Iqbal Mahal who still continues to guide them. The family also faced several hardships after Bibi Nooran passed away, eventually their father had to give music lessons to make both ends meet.

Though younger sister Jyoti earned some initial recognition after she participated in a reality show when she was just 10 years old, the actual turning point of their career was MTV sound Trippin, where they sang a track titled “Tung Tung” which became an instant hit. Another major break came through MTV, where they sang for Coke studio. Their performance on the show was appreciated a lot and it was only after this show that they were unanimously recognized as ‘Nooran sisters’.
After this initial fame, Nooran sisters made their Bollywood debut with the Patakha Guddi song, which was a critically acclaimed part of the entire ‘Highway’ album. Their success streak continued with movies like Moh Moh ke dhaage, Sultan, Dangal, Tanu Weds Manu Returns, Jab Harry Met Sejal and Saheb Biwi and Gangster Returns. The duo of Jyoti and Sultana has also bagged a lot of nominations and awards for their hit songs.
