Singer Akriti Kakar says that when she shifted to Mumbai from Delhi, her family was her biggest support. From her father leaving his business to support her dreams to her struggles to reach music composers, her journey, she recalls, has been a long and eventful one. Akriti has lent her voice to songs such as "Aanan faanan", "Khuda-ya khair", "Iski uski" and "Saturday Saturday" amongst others. Recalling how her family believed in her, Akriti says that while she at times had doubt on herself, her father didn't.
"My father had given up his business entirely to support my dreams. I felt that my father knew that I had the potential to do it but what if I did't? There was so much responsibility on my head but there was also no looking back. I had to stick to why we came to Mumbai and why he shut his business to come and support me. We just hoped that all these phone calls we are making, somebody on the other side would answer and call us to the studio," says Akriti who is currently seen in music reality shows as a judge "Sa Re Ga Ma Pa" Bangla and "Indian Pro Music League".
