BIOGRAPGY OF THE GROWING TALENT: AKHIL
Some celebrities are the one who are famous but there are very lesser facts known about them and mostly there is a question in mind in the people of Punjab about the new singers that are making in the field that “Is he trained?” and this is because there are many singers in Punjab these days that are stars because of their luck not because of their hard work and this is seen when it comes to the live shows, some sing on cd’s and if someone from the lucky ones even tries to sing without the track, he fails to attract the audience.
So it’s better if we have trained upcoming singers which represent our society and the trend we are going through, so here is the one who is making his place in many hearts, especially in the youth, Akhil. His song “Khaab” gave him a true reorganization in Punjab and was a super hit song of 2016. Let’s look into his life and struggle.
