Singer and Indian Idol judge Neha Kakkar on Saturday night stunned her fans by revealing that she wanted to commit suicide at one point because adverse circumstances around her had made her so hopeless about her life. Although she did not specify the reason, but it’s widely believed to be linked to the depression that she underwent in the aftermath of her breakup with Himansh Kohli earlier this year.
Addressing an Indian Idol contestant Azmat, the popular singer said, “You know what Azmat. Today, I am in a great situation. But everyone goes through a rough patch in their life. Even I went through..I used to feel that life is unfair to me and that I shouldn’t be alive. There was a time.”
Neha Kakkar continued, “Whosoever has such thoughts, that person must change those thoughts and think about his family and think how life is so beautiful and move on with life just how I’ve done.”
In January this year, Neha had made a stunning confession that she was going through depression. Her Instagram post had read, “Yes I am in depression. Thanks to all the negative people in the world. You are successful in giving me the worst days of my life. Congratulations, you’re successful.”
She had later told a Hindi newspaper that she was not able to ‘give time to her family and her friends’ when she was in a relationship. “At that time, I dedicated all my time and energy to that person who does not deserve it. And guess what; in spite of giving him so much time; he always complained of not being together,” Neha had told Dainik Bhaskar.
Neha, whose song Aankh Mare redux Simmba starring Sara Ali Khan and Ranveer Singh became a rage among Bollywood fans late last year, had announced her relationship with Himansh in 2018 on the sets of Indian Idol.
Neha is popular for singing Chalti Hai Kya 9 Se 12, Kala Chashma, Kar Gayi Chull, Manali Trance and Dilbar Redux.
Neha had recently lashed out at Kiku Sharda of The Kapil Sharma Show for making fun of her looks.
