Popular Bollywood singer Neha Kakkar had recently appeared on the Sony Television ‘Super Dancer Chapter 4’ as a special guest. Neha shared her struggle of her journey out of orthodoxy.
Neha mentioned it was her parents who immensely supported her and made sure their daughter’s talent gets recognised in the whole world. Neha revealed that, during initial days, her family drew criticism for allowing daughters to sing however it didn’t affect her parents.
When Neha and her sister started singing in ‘Jagrans’, people didn’t accept that but her parents continued their support in every step. "Our family used to live in Rishikesh and I was very small, may be four years old, when I started singing.
My sister started before me. Currently, Rishikesh has become a lot more advanced, but earlier everyone used to taunt my parents saying 'you make your daughters sing... what kind of a father is he'? But my father worked hard and made sure that the talent his daughters had came out in front of the whole world.
We started singing in 'jagrans' and though people found it very difficult to accept the fact that girls are singing, we always had immense support from our parents," said Neha.
