Singer Neeti Mohan, who shot to fame with the popular indi-pop band Aasma in 2003, says that it’s been difficult for her to come to terms with stardom.
“In the beginning, I looked at it like a job. Everyone has one, and to me it was like just another profession. I never understood why there’s so much talk around it (fame). Yes, it was a bit difficult for me to understand that it’s going to be a part of my career,” she says. “It took some time for me to understand that it is a part of my profession and I will have to be all right with it throughout my career. It’s not that I am averse to it, but it’s just that I am shy of it,” Mohan adds.
However, after over a decade of experience in the industry and popular hits such as Bang Bang, Tumhe Apna Banane Ka and Sau Aasmaon Ko, Neeti has understood that it’s a part of her life and has found ways of dealing with it. “ Whenever I feel like I am sort of losing control over things, I completely shut myself off from the world. I don’t access social media. Going off the grid helps me re-analyse things and just spend time with myself. That’s how I’ve come to terms with it,” she adds.
