Neha Bhasin has always been the one to never conform to the rules that have been set by the society. However, even though she has been all about breaking the glass ceiling and never letting the world get the better off her, there have been instances that left her stunned, and a little heartbroken. Nonetheless, it looks like all those moments have finally led her to this one path breaking performance that she has always awaited.
On the stage of Indian Pro Music League, Neha put together an absolutely mind-blowing performance on 'Aisa Jaadu Dala Re' and she received a standing ovation for the same. While there is nothing new about Neha being appreciated for her singing skills, what did make a huge difference for the singer was overcoming all these years of rejections that she has been subjected to because of how she dresses.

Post her performance, she narrated how she was asked to get off the stage for wearing shorts and was judged and slut-shamed on the basis of her clothes, without caring much about her talent. Being able to perform at such a stage left her elated for being accepted for her true self, without dissecting her for clothes and focusing on her audio visual vision. With this performance, she feels she has accomplished a part of what she has always set out to, especially in a country where playback singing is considered the traditional approach for singers and female performers are expected to conform to a certain persona that makes the Indian audience feel comfortable.
