Kakkar was born on 6 June 1988 in Rishikesh, Uttarakhand. She is the younger sister of playback singer Sonu Kakkar and singer-composer Tony Kakkar. During the early days, her father, Rishikesh, used to sell samosa outside a college for a living, while her mother, Niti Kakkar, was a homemaker. In the city, Kakkar shared a rented single-room house with her whole family, in which they used to sleep and simultaneously converted to a kitchen by putting a table. In the early 90s, Kakkar and her family moved to Delhi to try their luck in singing. At that time, the family was reeling under a financial crisis. Hoping to “contribute” to the family, Kakkar, at the age of four, started performing at local gatherings and religious events with her siblings, which she credited for “boosting” her self-confidence. Having music talent at home, she never felt the need to get any formal training in singing. In 2004, she moved to Mumbai with her brother, Tony Kakkar. In 2006, at the age of eighteen, Kakkar auditioned for the second season of Indian Idol, where she got eliminated early in the show. Being the youngest participant, she was naturally “pampered” on the sets and recalled that the show gave her “great memories and fame.”
Neha Kakkar Starting A Career
Kakkar anticipated that her participation in Indian Idol and the association with her brother, Tony Kakkar, would fuel her career in playback singing. However, five years post-Indian Idol, Kakkar failed to gather any work in Bollywood films which she believes was due to her “negligence in pleading the music directors and producers, unlike the rest of participants from the show.” Hence, she became more occupied with the concerts and event performances that took her “across the world.” According to her, during this phase, she started getting recognized, and people started referring to her as the “Jai Mata Di girl.”
Kakkar’s first release of 2013, “Botal Khol” from Prague, met with controversy, where Central Board of Film Certification raised objections on the song, citing that its lyrics contain double meaning. In an interview with Hindustan Times, Kakkar stated, “We do discuss with our lyricists when we are recording. But we cannot stop making or singing such songs just because certain sections of the society do not like it”. This was followed by a Sachin-Jigar’s item number composed for Ramaiya Vastavaiya. Titled “Jadoo Ki Jhappi,” the song met with negative reception from critics, where Rajiv Vijayakar from Bollywood Hungama rated the song as the weakest track on the album and wrote: “Kakkar cannot impart the magic that marks the vocals of the most successful item numbers.” She next collaborated with Pritam for another item song “Dhating Nach,” performed alongside Nakash Aziz and Shefali Alvares.
2016 was a successful year for Kakkar where she performed the popular song “Mile Ho Tum” from the film Fever, composed, written, and co-sung by Tony Kakkar, which she considers the “closest song to her heart.” Credited as the most-viewed Bollywood song on YouTube, the song received a positive response from critics and the audience. Reviewing the song, Mohar Basu from The Times of India wrote: “Kakkar shows her versatile vein with she keeps her voice subtle and sticks to the mellow meter.” Also, she contributed to the soundtrack album of Baar Baar Dekho by performing the wedding song “Kala Chashma,” which became the “party anthem of the year.” Included in the list of the most viewed Bollywood songs on YouTube, “Kala Chashma” was admired by the critics for its use of “dubstep, hip-hop beats, and a very groovy bass,” for which Surabhi Redkar from Koimoi applauded Kakkar’s “powerful vocals” in the song. She worked with Epic Bhangra for the film Sanam Re, where they released the song “Humne Pee Rakhi Hai,” a mix of club and EDM, which was deemed as an “unnecessary addition to the album,” and Kakkar’s vocals were noted to be “awfully shrill.”She then released several chart-busters which made into the same list, including “Aankh Marey” from Simmba, “Dilbar” from Satyameva Jayate, “Badri Ki Dulhania” from Badrinath Ki Dulhania, “Cheez Badi” from Machine, “Kala Chashma” for the film Baar Baar Dekho and the private single “Nikle Currant,” all of which crossed over six hundred million views. Similarly, “Dilbar” marks the first Indian song to reach the number three spot on the Billboard YouTube Music Chart.
