Mumbai: Self-proclaimed singer/musician Dhinchak Pooja is back and how! The Delhi girl is all set to perform in Dubai at the Spree Club on March 8, on the occasion of International Women’s Day.
She took to her Facebook page to share the news.
She posted: “Be ready Dubai ,I m coming (sic).”
The YouTuber had participated in Bigg Boss 11 as a wild card entrant for a brief period last year. In the show hosted by Bollywood superstar Salman Khan, she was seen entertaining her co-contestants by her singing. During the grand finale episode, Salman and special guest Akshay Kumar seemed to be in “awe” of her singing. They rode a scooter with her and even sang her songs.
Dhinchak, whose real name is Pooja Jain, hails from East Delhi in the national capital, and first came up with the song Swag waali topi.
Dhinchak’s claim to fame is her song Selfie Maine Leli Li. Her songs have been dubbed “bad”. Yet, tracks like Selfie mainai leli aaj and Daaru went viral on digital platforms.
Does she purposely sing in such a manner to gain eyeballs on social media platforms?
“No. No money has been spent on music and beat… That’s why it seems funny. The kind of lyrics I know, I write… And even if I put money and it doesn’t come out well, then also it wouldn’t seem right,” said the 23-year-old.
The Bapu dede thoda cash singer says she wants to do something unique.
“I wanted to do something different. So I created something that people liked in a funny way… Whatever it was, they liked it,” she added.
Asked if the negative remarks about her singing skills and videos affect her, Dhinchak said: “No. I don’t feel bad. I don’t pay attention (to all this).
