Not many of us know that Neha Kakkar was a contestant on Indian Idol 2. She is now judging the show from season 10 to now. As a contestant, she got eliminated early as she had health issues & the judges back then were Anu Malik, Sonu Nigam & Farah Khan Kunder. Now, we have come across a video of Neha Kakkar during her Indian Idol auditions — Piano Round wherein her performance made Anu Malik furious & he ended up slapping himself.
In the video, Neha Kakkar can be heard singing the song ‘Aisa Lagta Hai’ from the movie Refugee originally crooned by Sonu Nigam. The music for the song was composed by Anu. Neha sings the song with her partner & in the end, Malik says:
“Neha Kakkar… Teri awaaz sun kar lagta hai main apne mooh par maaroon thappad, yaar! Kya ho gaya hai tere ko? (I feel like slapping myself after hearing you sing. What happened to you?)” This leaves Neha shocked!
