Neha Kakkar is one of the most popular singing sensations to come out of India’s music industry. She is one of the rare celebrities who garnered a lot of fame and attention in a short period of time. She has given the fans superhits after hits that have dominated the playlist for a long while.

On the occasion of her birthday, let’s take a glimpse into the life of Neha Kakkar and look into some facts that we bet you didn’t know!

1. Performing and being a crowd-pleaser has been in Neha’s blood since the beginning. Believe it or not but she began her career when she was as young as 4 years of age! She began performing at religious events and jagratas with her siblings in order to ‘financially support’ her family.

2. Her mother was a homemaker and her father’s previous occupation included selling Samosas outside of a college to earn a livelihood.

3. Neha and her family lived in a single room that was rented. They also converted it into a kitchen and would sleep there simultaneously. Her parents and fans are prouder than ever of her for making it so big in the industry.

4. She made her first TV appearance at the age of 18 when she participated in the singing reality show ‘Indian Idol’ during its second season. Who knew years from now she will become a part of the show once again but as a judge!

5. Although she is known for her sensational voice, the diva was never professionally taught or trained in singing or music. Neha is a self-taught artist and has often said that not being trained formally has never bothered her.
