There are a lot of social causes that are close to my heart,” says Aditi Singh Sharma, who recently performed her hit track, ‘Sooraj dooba hai (Roy; 2015)’, at a city event hosted by a charitable organisation that aims to educate the girl child. The singer feels that “gender equality” is on the rise, and is important to fight for. “Nobody should be overshadowed on the basis of caste, gender or colour,” she says.

Aditi, who recently performed at an event alongside Ranbir Kapoor, says it was “great to share” the stage with the Rockstar (2011) actor. “I adore Ranbir. It is great when you get to work with such amazing artistes, and have them sing your songs. It was an amazing experience because I don’t perform in Mumbai too often,” says Aditi.
