Neha Kakkar on Bollywood songs: We don't get paid for singing in films

She has belted out some of the biggest foot-tapping 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. Yet, Neha Kakkar tells you, that singers hardly ever get paid in the film industry. "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," Neha told IANS. 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."

Meanwhile, music artistes like Neha Kakkar, Salim Merchant and Armaan Malik had united so that their fans can enjoy live music from their sofas. Neha performed her latest hits like "Yaad piya ki aane lagi" and "Garmi". "At a time like this, as much as staying home is important, so is maintaining positivity and keeping ourselves engaged. As an artiste, I am using this time to interact with my fans through TikTok and its live concert to keep them entertained. Being calm right now is the key," said Neha.

On the work front, Neha will feature in a song with rapper Yo Yo Honey Singh titled "Moscow suka". The number is a mix of Punjabi and Russian language. The Russian vocals are given by Ekaterina Sizova.
