Burman Award for ‘Ishq Wala Love’ and ‘Jiya Re’ and meeting my husband Nihaar, of course. My baby Aryaveer, uski entry, that is the most special moment in my life!”
Reminiscing about the time when she missed the delivery of her brand-new car to record ‘Nainowale Ne’ from ‘Padmaavat’, Neeti shared, “I had purchased a new car on the same day when I was recording this track, and the delivery of the car too was scheduled for that day. My phone was switched off because obviously, when you’re recording for Sanjay Leela Bhansali for the first time, there is nothing more important. I didn’t care that a new car was arriving. The delivery executive tried calling me for two hours. I reached home and there was a new car downstairs! I was wondering whose car was it and then I realized that it’s the same car that was to be delivered to me! I always laugh when I recall this story. When one is passionate about music, it completely takes over you like it did to me.”
In addition to sharing such fun trivia from her journey with fans, the sought-after artist will also be seen performing her most famous songs across genres.
