Singer Tulsi Ku­mar (above) says that not only has her ca­reer taken off af­ter mar­riage in Fe­bru­ary this year, but her in-laws and hus­band Hitesh Ral­han love the work that she does too. “I am so lucky to get such a sup­port­ive fam­ily. My in-laws love my song, Tum Jo Aaye. In fact, my mom-in-law keeps hum­ming it all the time. My hus­band loves Saiyaan Su­per­star. He thinks that I am singing it for him,” says Tulsi, adding, “My ca­reer has not taken a back­seat af­ter mar­riage at all. In fact, it is mov­ing with greater speed. Of course, re­spon­si­bil­i­ties have in­creased, as now I am a wife, daugh­ter-in-law and a sis­ter-in-law as well.”

The singer will also be re­ceiv­ing the Ra­jiv Gandhi Ex­cel­lence Award in Delhi in the cat­e­gory — Melodic Voice of the Year, and is ec­static. “I am hon­oured to get this award. I’m so lucky that I am get­ting this recog­ni­tion af­ter be­ing in the in­dus­try for just seven-eight years. This is such a big thing for me and means so much,” she says.

The 29-year-old crooner says that awards have al­ways en­cour­aged her to do bet­ter work. “While my fans have al­ways sup­ported my work and this has re­ally helped me to bet­ter my tal­ent, an award is a mark of recog­ni­tion by the in­dus­try. I feel that these up­lift an artist. It’s a great feel­ing of achieve­ment, and very en­cour­ag­ing,” she says.
