Singer Neha Kakkar says she wrote her latest song, Nehu da vyah, with an optimistic mind, and she insists she never imagined that the lyrics would come true in her life.
The song that led to wedding
Neha got married to singer Rohanpreet Singh, who featured in the song, soon after the release of the song. The song has over 400,000 Reels being created with it.
"One day during the lockdown, I was sitting idle and I thought let me try and make a song. My brother and sister already have this talent and I managed to make ‘Nehu da vyah'. The lyrics are such that I wanted something like this to materialise for me," she said.
"I wrote it very optimistically and I didn't know this would really happen. The boy in the video would be my husband," she added.
The big fan following
Neha is Instagram's most followed singer in India, and she feels lucky to have such a huge virtual family.
"I think I'm lucky, but along with that, it's also my headwork and talent that's led me to 50 million followers. Both Instagram and Facebook are my favourites and whenever new features have been launched, I've tried them and rocked them," she shared.
Neha got candid about her life, and her journey as a creator on Facebook Fuel For India, an annual dialogue from Facebook that showcases the most impactful stories of change in India.
The first day of the event saw speakers such as Mukesh Ambani, Mark Zuckerberg, Sheryl Sandberg and Adam Mosseri. Neha Kakkar featured on day two.
She also encouraged people to spread love and positivity, the way she has been trying to do, by being real and authentic with her community.
