Bollywood singer Neha Kakkar’s publicity stunt stumps fans

There’s no denying that Bollywood celebrities often indulge in publicity stunts to increase their popularity or promote their upcoming films. And it has now emerged that Bollywood singer Neha Kakkar’s photo with a visible baby bump was also nothing more than a publicity stunt for her upcoming music video.

Neha’s posting of the photo on social media topped the trends’ list on Friday. In her Instagram post, the 32-year-old wrote, “#KhyaalRakhyaKar,” and also posed with husband Rohanpreet. “Now I’ll have to take extra care of you,” Rohanpreet had written in the comments section.

Several Bollywood celebrities also took to social media to wish the couple. “Congratulations you both,” wrote singer Kanika Maan.

However, sharing the same picture on Instagram on Saturday, the singer made it clear that it was a promo photo. “#KhyaalRakhyaKar 22nd December” she wrote. Neha will reportedly collaborate on the music video with her husband.

The couple tied the knot in Delhi in October, after meeting on the sets of a music video. They later hosted a reception at Rohanpreet’s hometown in the northern city of Chandigarh, some 250 kms from the national capital. They went to Dubai for their honeymoon.

A popular name in Bollywood, Neha began performing at religious events at the age of four and participated in the second season of the singing reality show, Indian Idol. She made her Bollywood debut as a chorus singer in the film ‘Meerabai Not Out’.

The singer hogged limelight upon the release of the dance track ‘Second Hand Jawani’ from Cocktail, which was followed by several other popular party songs, including ‘Sunny Sunny’ from Yaariyan and ‘London Thumakda’ from the blockbuster ‘Queen’.

In 2019, Neha was listed among the most viewed female artists on Youtube with 4.2 billion views. And in December 2020, she appeared in the list of Asia’s 100 Digital Stars by ‘Forbes’ magazine.
