Bollywood singer Aditya Narayan recently revealed that he has been facing a financial crisis during the Covid-19 lockdown.
In a startling revelation, renowned singer Udit Narayan’s son described his current situation and expressed worry about the lack of work.
Aditya recently announced that he is set to get married to girlfriend Shweta Agarwal and while all his fans are super excited for that special day, the Shaapit actor opened up about his financial struggle during the pandemic period.
The singer, who sang numbers like Tattad Tattad, Ishqiyaon Dhishkiyaon, and others, says that he has only Rs 18,000 left in his account and if he doesn’t get any work in October, he would sell off his bike.
Talking to Bollywood Bubble, Aditya Narayan said: “If the government extends the lockdown even further, people will start dying of hunger. My whole savings are depleted. I’ve literally finished my savings. All the money I had invested in Mutual Funds, I had to withdraw all of that (to survive). Because nobody had planned that I wouldn’t be working for a year and yet chilling it out. Nobody plans it like that. Unless you’re like some billionaire. So, there is no choice. Like I’ve Rs 18,000 left in my account.”
“So, if I don’t start working by October, I would have no money. I would have to sell off my bike or something. It’s really tough,” he added.
While talking to Bollywood Life, Aditya opened about his struggle in the industry and had said that he had started getting work after 25 long years.
Last year, A.R. Rahman called him for a recording after 20 long years.
“This year, I have sung songs for Vishal-Shekhar. I have known them since I was 18. I used to host Sa Re Ga Ma Pa and they used to judge the show. And still, they didn’t give me any work at that time. “After Ramleela, I met music directors like Pritam da, Vishal-Shekhar, and Shankar Ehsaan Loy, everyone, but still, I didn’t get any work. If this is not a struggle, then what is it? At the age of 32, I have started getting hits to my name. But even after giving two big hits in Ram-Leela, nobody gave me work for 6 years thereafter,” he added.
