Neha parents and the whole family had moved to uttam nagar, Delhi from rishikesh, uttarakhand when neha was around two years old.

At age of four, she also started to perform in religious events from evening seven till five next morning. She get paid INR 100 for her first performance.
Though most people loves their performance, there are always a few who criticises her father for making both his daughters sing in public events.
From age four to sixteen she has performed in numerous jaagran’s, attending four to five events in a day. Her father had struggled hard for their livelihood during those days, there were times when they don’t even have any money for their school and tuition fees.
He used to sell samosa’s outside her sister sonu kakkar’s school and some of her sister’s friends used to tease sonu for that and on one occasion some classmate of her sister taunts her by saying “don’t talk these big things, just sell samosa’s outside with your father” .this one comment made an impression on back of her mind and she was determined to give a respected place to her parents in the society and fulfil all their dreams one day.
Neha went to “new holy public school” in uttam nagar, Delhi. When she was in 11th standard, she auditioned for Indian idol season 2 in 2006. She had to quit her studies to take part in the contest and had never continued her studies after that.
