Neha Kakkar reveals Singers are hardly ever get Paid in the Film industry!

Neha Kakkar revealed that singers aren't paid much and they usually earn a good amount from live concerts and everything...


At times artists go through a lot of trouble to earn a buck and it might be hard to earn a buck. While some earn a fortune working in Bollywood, Neha Kakkar claims singers hardly ever get paid in the film industry.

Talking to the IANS, Neha said, "We don't get paid for singing in Bollywood at all. What happens is they feel that if we give a superhit song, the singer will earn through shows."

She has crooned some of the best hits including Garmi, Aankh Marey, O Saki, Dilbar, and Kala Chashma among many others, and enjoys as much popularity as any top singer in contemporary Bollywood. 

The 31-year-old added: "I get a good amount from live concerts and everything, but Bollywood doesn't have this scene. To make us sing a song, they don't pay."

However, with the spread of coronavirus, several Bollywood projects are being put on pause and it seems there won’t be any live concerts for a while as well. 

Meanwhile, on the work front, Neha will be seen featuring along rapper Yo Yo Honey Singh titled Moscow Suka. The number is a mix of Punjabi and the Russian language. The Russian vocals are performed by Ekaterina Sizova.

Ms.S.K. 3 months ago Agree with below comment. Cannot sing full stop. So how can she sit there and judge a contestant who is far better singer than her. Sometimes I feel her voice will break and sings on same level pitch. If she had to sing in high pitch wonder what would happen??!!! Also mostly she sings remixes. No originality.
Meena_J 3 months ago She's a bad singer. I don't like her on Indian Idol no offense.
