Ranu Mondal became took the internet by storm and became an overnight sensation after her video of singing at the Kolkata railway station went viral. After that, she has recorded multiple songs thanks to actor-singer-composer Himesh Reshammiya. Ranu Mondal is a prominent figure now. Recently, it was reported that Salman Khan had gifted Ranu a flat worth Rs 55 lakh and a car and Bhai fans went crazy over his kind gesture. However, the superstar himself has cleared the air on these rumours.
Putting all the rumours to the bed, Salman told IANS, “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.”
Also, Vicky Biwas, the man who shoots and posts Ranu Mondal’s videos, had earlier told IANS, “A lot of fake news surrounding Ranu di is doing the rounds on social media, such as she has purchased a car worth Rs 15 lakh, or she has been called for ‘Bigg Boss’, or Himesh Reshammiya has paid her Rs 50 lakh to record her song. Yes, Himesh ji has done a lot for her and has also sponsored her trips to Mumbai, but the rest of these reports are fake.”
For the uninitiated, Ranu Mondal's soulful rendition of Lata Mangeshkar's 'Ek Pyar Ka Nagma Hai' landed her an invitation at a Bollywood singing reality show. Her voice mesmerised Himesh Reshammiya and soon she recorded her first song for his upcoming movie Happy Hardy. She is in process of recording another track for the same movie in Mumbai.
