Neha Kakkar sends money to Sonu, Tony Kakkar, elder brother from Rishikesh when they were struggling in Mumbai.
Neha Kakkar is perhaps the youngest child in her family, but she looks after the needs of her elder siblings. Even when he was in Rishikesh, he saw his brother Tony and sister Sonu struggling in Mumbai.
Talking to Mumbai Mirror about her sister, Tony said, “Initially, only me and Sonu shifted to Mumbai, and Neha still performed in Rishikesh. The biggest task for us in Mumbai was to go home hunting. We did not have enough money to buy a house so we lived in a small rented apartment. But the rent was skyrocketing and we have no fixed income. For the first recording, Sonu received Rs 500. This amount continued to increase and somehow we survived. Neha also sent us money from there.
Tony also talked about how Neha would sing at religious events in her hometown. “From a very young age, Neha started singing in religious programs, and people were mesmerized by her soulful voice. She was also a full-fledged artist at the age of four. We were busy most of the time because of his events but I remember that we used to go to the amusement park and it was the most thrilling thing for the three of us.
Recently, Neha showed a large mansion she had found for herself and her family in Rishikesh, and the modest house where she had grown up. “This is the bungalow we now have in #Rishikesh and we used to live in Swipe Wright’s house in the same house where I was born in 1 room in Kakkar in which my mother put a table in that small kitchen. The room. And even that room was not our own, we were paying rent. And now whenever I see our own bungalow in Sem City, I always get emotional, “she said.
Tony said that the family’s fortunes changed when Neha participated in Indian Idol, which launched her career. Neha has sung many hit songs in Bollywood such as Saki Saki, Aankhen Mare, Dilbar, Coca Cola and others. She is among the most watched female stars on YouTube in the world, ranking second after Cardi B.
