Neha Kakkar had begun her singing journey at the mere age of four, when she had learnt everything just by watching her elder sister, Sonu Kakkar perform. After singing with her siblings, Sonu and Tony Kakkar at jagratas, Neha participated in Indian Idol Season 2 in 2006 and six years of struggles later, she finally got her breakthrough with the film, Cocktail. Neha's journey from rags to riches hasn’t been a cakewalk and with her sheer dedication and hard work, she cemented her place in the music industry as a versatile singer.
A girl from Rishikesh, who had dreamt of becoming a singer was the third one to be eliminated on Indian Idol 2 and her journey from then, to becoming the judge on the same show is indeed an inspiring one. Neha Kakkar with her parents and siblings, Sonu Kakkar and Tony Kakkar used to live in a rented room in Rishikesh. Now, years later, Neha had built a lavish bungalow in 2019 for her family in Rishikesh.
The Kakkar siblings are on a professional high at the moment and their personal lives too, are no less than bliss. Neha is happily living her married life with her husband, Rohanpreet Singh and she is once again in the headlines, for a surprise she has planned for her brother, Tony Kakkar. Neha posted a video from her balcony, which captured the working labours in the garden of her home. Revealing details about the same, Neha wrote in her caption, "Cricket Pitch at home!! Work in progress. Gift kaisa laga?? @tonykakkar- Aapki Choti Behan #NehaKakkar #ReelItFeelIt."
An overwhelmed Tony Kakkar commented on his sister, Neha Kakkar's post, "The bestest gift ever nehu. I am so lucky. Thank youuu. You truly a special child of god. An inspiration to million. Your achievements inspire me to work harder." Neha's husband, Rohanpreet Singh also commented on the post saying that this is not just a surprise gift for Tony but for him too. He wrote, "Wowww Babu ye to sirf Tony Bhai k liye he nhi Infact Mere liye bhi Surprise Gift Hogya!!"
In February 2019, the sibling trio - Sonu Kakkar, Tony Kakkar and Neha Kakkar had purchased a new home together and had organised a griha pravesh puja in their beautiful new abode. Neha had then shared glimpses of their new home. Neha had also given her fans a glimpse of her ‘life is good’ phase when she shared a picture of herself smiling ear-to-ear on their house-warming ceremony. Neha also posted a picture of her new car, holding the keys in her hands and had written, "New baby in the house" atop it.
Born in Rishikesh, the Kakkars used to live in a rented one-room house. The self-made singer, Neha had posted a picture of their old house and the new bungalow in March 2020 and had captioned it, "This is the Bungalow we Own now in #Rishikesh and Swipe Right to see the house where I was Born. In the same house We Kakkar’s used to stay in a 1 Room inside which My Mother had put a table which was our kitchen in that small room. And that Room also was not our own, we were paying rent. And Now Whenever I see Our Own Bungalow in the Same City, I always get Emotional #SelfMade #NehaKakkar Biggest Thanks to My Family @sonukakkarofficial @tonykakkar Mom Dad Mata Rani (God) and Ofcourse My NeHearts and All My Well wishers #NehuDiaries #Utrakhand #KakkarFamily."
Meanwhile, a few reports in the media state that Tony Kakkar is allegedly dating Bigg Boss 14 contestant, Nikki Tamboli.
