Singers Sukriti Kakkar (left) and her twin sis­ter Prakriti (far left) might be the first twins in the In­dian mu­sic in­dus­try, and while many might feel that this sets them apart, that’s not the case. They say that they are of­ten con­fused for an­other pair of sis­ters, thanks to their sur­name. “We of­ten get con­fused for Neha and Sonu (Kakkar). It’s re­ally funny. There have been times, es­pe­cially in Delhi, when peo­ple con­fuse me with Neha,” says Sukriti.

The con­fu­sion, how­ever doesn’t bother the 21-yearold twins, who feel blessed to be a part of Bol­ly­wood. “Our ca­reers took off in­di­vid­u­ally, and we are proud of that. We def­i­nitely bank on the USP of be­ing the first set of twins in the in­dus­try, but, that won’t stop us from work­ing in­di­vid­u­ally. We do live shows to­gether be­cause that’s our USP. But in films, you have to do solo work. There won’t be many op­por­tu­ni­ties to sing to­gether,” says Prakriti.

In fact, there are mo­ments when the two are of­ten au­di­tion­ing against each other. “Many times, it’s be­tween me, her and three other girls, when we are au­di­tion­ing for a song. But that’s the pro­to­col. Some­times, one of us gets se­lected, and some­times both of us don’t. There are days, when one of us isn’t in­spired or feel­ing con­fi­dent. Then the other one makes it a point to en­cour­age, and work harder to get the next song,” says Sukriti.
