I Never thought I can be so big as a fe­male singer: Neha Kakkar

Hindustan Times (Ranchi) - Live - - Entertainment -

As livewire as her songs, Neha Kakkar says she never thought she could make it as big as she has, as a fe­male singer in show­biz.

Neha, who has lent her power-packed voice to songs such as Tukur tukur, Kaala chashma, Ch­hote ch­hote peg and Morni banke, has had an in­spir­ing jour­ney from be­ing a con­tes­tant on a singing real­ity show to be­com­ing a judge on the show in its tenth sea­son.

“I al­ways tell ev­ery­body I feel I am liv­ing my dream. Peo­ple have made me so big now which I never thought I can be as a singer,” says Neha.

“Wher­ever I go, peo­ple be­have like a big su­per­star has en­tered, and I am never able to be­lieve that they all are talk­ing about me. At one time in life, I stood in queues for In­dian Idol au­di­tions and got elim­i­nated at Top 8 or 9,” she says.

“When­ever the cam­era is off, you will find me sit­ting with con­tes­tants as I feel there is still a con­tes­tant in­side me,” adds the singer, who is set to em­bark on a mu­si­cal tour.

Neha will per­form in In­dore, Lucknow, Guwa­hati, Man­ga­lore, Udaipur and Bhubanesh­war.

Asked what is tough­est about singing live, she says, “Hold­ing the au­di­ence.

I am very com­fort­able on stage, as I have been per­form­ing since child­hood. But ear­lier I used to sing bha­jans.”
