After judging season 10 of singing reality show Indian Idol, singer Neha Kakkar is on a national tour, performing in various cities in India and her recent live performance in Ahmedabad shows her breaking down on stage while singing Maahi Ve. Right before singing it, Neha had announced that she was dedicating the song to all those nursing a broken heart.
In the video that went instantly viral, Neha is seen choking up in between the performance ample number of times, stopping in the middle of her gig to wipe tears and steady her voice before she finally stopped singing and pulling herself together, said, “Sorry guys, no matter what happens in my personal life, I am here for you today, and the next song is dedicated to all those who have gathered for me here today.”
Today, taking to her Instagram account, the Aankh Marey singer finally revealed, through a series of Instagram stories, that she is suffering from depression.
The Dilbar singer had a tumultuous time of her career last year, having been the voice behind almost every hit song in 2018 but recently, she was reported to have broken up with Yaariyan actor-boyfriend Himansh Kolhi. Seems like Neha is dealing with a difficult phase in her life. She also broke down on the sets of Indian Idol 10 after listening to an emotional song. The singer also made another post on social media after the incident and wrote, “I know now everybody’s gonna talk about it now.. People are gonna judge me.. pata nahin log kya bolenge.. some people are gonna say things which I haven’t even done but koi nahin.. mujhe aadat ho gayi hai sab snne ki.. sab sehne ki” (sic).
Earlier, on the singing reality show, Himansh professed his feelings for Neha. Another time, Neha had also stated that the actor would surely be one of the guys she would consider when she would think about getting married.
On the professional front, Neha has crooned the song Makhna with Honey Singh. Produced by Bhushan Kumar, it is directed by Mihir Gulati. The song garnered more than 15 million views on YouTube in less than 24 hours. Her song Aankh Marey from the film Simmba is topping the chartbusters. She has also crooned the revamped version of Chamma Chamma that features Elli Avram. It is composed by Tanishk Bagchi and the lyrics are penned down by Shabbir Ahmed.
