PollywoodBoxOffice: Tell us something about your childhood.
Preet Harpal: I was born in Gurdaspur on 31st March. Later, my family shifted to my mother’s village and we started living there. I always had a knack for singing. I was crazy for music since childhood. During those times, music was not taken as a serious career. My family was into farming and got skeptical about my choice and did not support me enough. My father, Sardar Bachchan Singh and mother, Late Kulwant Kaur wanted me to study well and apply for a government job and then get settled. But I had a totally different perspective in my mind. I left my home and my family for music. I went to Ludhiana to make my career and today, I am a known singer around the world which gives me immense pleasure.
PollywoodBoxOffice: Any memorable incident that happened with you during your struggle days.
Preet Harpal: After I left my home, my father came in search for me in Ludhiana. I remember hiding from him. I did not wanted to go back. Then my uncle came into my rescue and made him understand about my passion. My father gave me one and a half years to pursue my career. That’s when I met my godfather in 1999, Jarnail Kumar Ji who recorded my first song ever. He was a big Producer and gave me my first break which was Hasle Vairne Hasle. And that’s how I started my journey.
