Popular singer Neha Kakkar is celebrating her 34th birthday today, on 6 June. She climbed the ladder of success with her hard work and determination. Neha has been very vocal about her struggles and the financial woes she and her family suffered before she made a big in the music industry. As we speak of this, Neha once got emotional talking about her struggling days after she met the son of her old landlord on Indian Idol 10 auditions.
In 2018, the Garmi hit-maker broke down in tears as she recalled her own past. Back then, a young man came for the audition and when he introduced himself, Neha realized that he was the son of her old landlord, who had died recently. The singer told her co-judges, “Me and Sonu didi (Sonu Kakkar, her elder sister), when we used to sing at jagrans, his father also did many jagrans. He had a band and we used to sing for him. We were really young. In fact, we have even lived at their house. Oh my God.”
While reflecting on her past, she went on to add, “Kitne dukh ke baat hai. Us waqt hum kaafi gareeb hua karte the, bahut hi zaada gareeb the humlog. Us waqt kaafi help bhi ki thi inke papa ne. Inke papa mummy hume khana khilate the, hum inke ghar pe rehte the kuch dino ke liye (It's such a sad thing. We used to be so poor back then. His dad helped us a lot, fed us and even allowed us to stay with him).” ALSO READ:
