8 Things We Learned about Neeti Mohan on Talking Music - Saavn

You might know Neeti Mohan as that girl from that band — but there’s a whole lot more to her! In fact, her life story will take you through a whole range of emotions. She’s truly had a long, inspiring musical journey. From winning Popstars and joining Aasma, to being in A.R. Rahman’s band, to her big Bollywood break –  she shared stories of all her highs and lows on Talking Music with Kirthi Shetty. Here’s what we learned about the woman behind the beautiful voice.

1.  Neeti Mohan doesn’t need auto-tune.

We honestly don’t tire of listening to magical voices live in our studio. And, Neeti’s was right up there among the best. When she sang right in front of us, time literally froze, and we forgot what we were doing. Not exaggerating.

2. She thought all reality shows were scripted… until she won one!

Neeti was a firm believer in the fact that reality shows’ winners were picked based on nepotism rather than merit. But, as she progressed through Popstars, that belief died with every round. She eventually went on to win it. That’s one way to bust a myth.

3. Her watchman helped her cheat on her diet.

Back in her Aasma days, Neeti and her band were put on a strict diet. But over time, their cravings got the better of them. So, they started requesting their watchman to sneak in biscuits and sweets into their flat. And, he obliged. Not all heroes wear capes.

4. Neeti and her sisters were divas from day one.

When Neeti spoke to Kirthi about her childhood, she painted a picture of her and her sisters dressing up, using their bed as a stage, and putting on a show. She also remembered going overboard with over-the-top dresses and super glittery make-up. You can imagine the cuteness overload.

5.  She’s done over 100 concerts with Rahman.

After Aasma, Neeti auditioned to be a part of A.R. Rahman’s band, and got selected by the maestro himself. Since then, she’s done over 100 concerts with him all over the world. Yes, that’s one followed by two zeros.

6.  Neeti threw her mother’s ring into the crowd.

Once, Neeti launched her mother’s ring into the crowd while performing. The fan who caught the ring was over the moon because of this unintentional kind gesture. Through her performance Neeti had to keep signaling that she wanted her ring back but the fan didn’t quite understand what was happening. Watch the video below to figure out what happened next!

6.  Neeti loves Saavn playlists.

No, we didn’t pay her or even request her to say this. Neeti told us about her love for Saavn playlists of her own volition. Neeti Mohan loves Saavn! And who can blame her?

7.  Neeti Mohan doesn’t need auto-tune.

We honestly don’t tire of listening to magical voices live in our studio. And, Neeti’s was right up there among the best. When she sang right in front of us, time literally froze, and we forgot what we were doing. Not exaggerating.

8.  Another week, another victim – Kirthi’s voice is NSFW.

Our super host Kirthi Shetty is adamant that he can make it as a singer. Neeti Mohan, on the other hand, doesn’t see it that way.
