Early life:

Neha Kakkar was born on June 6, 1988, in Rishikesh, which is now in the state of Uttarakhand. Her family later moved to Delhi in the early 1990s to pursue her singing dreams. She began performing at local events and religious gatherings when she was just four years old.


In 2004, Neha and her brother Tony moved to Mumbai. Two years later, at the age of eighteen, she auditioned for the second season of Indian Idol but was eliminated early on in the competition.
