Earlier when such rumours surfaced on the Internet Ranu Mondal’s manager had denied all such rumours and now Salman has also denied such rumours. Salman Khan told Bombay Times “That’s false news. Even I have heard this. What I have not done, there is no credit for that. I have done nothing like that.”

Himesh was all praises for Ranu and was quoted as saying, “During the making of Aadat I realised that Ranu Ji is not a one-song wonder, you will agree once you hear Aadat. She is truly sounding divine and versatile. A great talent, thanks for all your support lots of love”.

Ranu has already recorded for two songs “Aadat” and “Teri Meri Kahaani” for Himesh Reshammiya upcoming “Happy Hardy and Heer”. Ranu Mondal is living the life of a star now but things were not the same before. Talking about her struggles Ranu was quoted as saying, “I wasn’t born on a footpath. I belonged to a well-to-do family but it was my destiny. I got separated from my parents when I was just six months old. We had a house but you know you need people to maintain it. There were so many days of loneliness. I struggled a lot but always believed in God. I used to sing according to situations. It wasn’t to get singing opportunities, just for the love of singing. I used to learn songs from Lata Mangeshkar. She didn’t teach me but I learnt from the radio and cassettes”.

Well, everybody has his/her own story of struggle and those who stand strong emerge victorious and so did Ranu. We wish them all the best for their future endeavours.
