        She is charming millions of people from all over the world with her talent in Indian Comedy Show on Star Plus. She is not only a very talented comedian and does so good mimicry but she is also a trained Indian classical vocalist.

 Sugandha Mishra forayed into music at the age of three. She started learning the music at a very young age from her grandfather Pandit Shanker Lal Mishra, who has been the direct disciple of late Ustad Amir Khan of Indore, Pandit Bhola Nath Bhatt of Allahabad and Pandit Narayan Rao Joshi of Gwalior. Her uncle, Dr Arun Mishra, is a known sitarist.

Sugandha did her bachelors at the Apeejay College of Fine Arts. A string of awards has been coming her way since the age of twelve when she bagged the first prize in the Open Music Competition of the Harballabh Sangeet Sammelan. During North Zonal and Inter-University Youth Festival 2000, she secured the first position in classical vocal and bhajan. She stood second in classical vocal in All-India University Youth Festival held at Varanasi in January 2001. 

She bagged the first prize in the 7th National Youth Festival held at Hisar in 2002. She secured the first position in classical vocal music competition during North Zone Inter-University Youth Festival held at Allahabad in 2002. She again got the first position in Western solo during North Zone Inter-University Youth Festival competition held at Allahabad in 2002. She bagged the first prize in classical vocal music in the 8th National Open Youth Festival held in 2003. The state government awarded her Rs. 1 lakh for her outstanding  achievement in the field of classical vocal
 music.  In 2004 again, she secured the first positions in Western solo, Western group song, classical vocal solo and mimicry in zonal, inter-zonal and north zone inter-university youth festivals. 

She says that her  guru does not like my dabbling in Western music and mimicry but in her opinion versatility is no disqualification. She feels comfortable singing Western solo and doing mimicry. Music, for her, is akin to "tapasaya".

Her dream is to be a classical vocalist.
