Rapper Hard Kaur, who is known for giving her vocals in Bollywood films like “Singh Is Kinng”, “Kismat Konnection”, “Bachna Ae Haseeno”, “Ram Gopal Varma Ki Aag”, “Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani” and “Prince”, says she faced a lot of struggle in her life because she was a girl, especially an Indian.
Kaur opened about her struggle during the #IShapeMyWorld campaign. The rapper is part of the fourth edition of Levi’s #IshapeMyWorld movement that celebrates unstoppable women who have shaped their lives on their own terms.
“A large part of my struggle was because I was a girl, an Indian girl to be more precise. People couldn’t believe I could be a rapper and I was asked to prove myself time and again just because it was a male dominated industry,” news agency IANS quoted Kaur as saying.
“Ever since I was a child I faced a lot of negativity. From being bullied, to having no friends, to growing up in a world full of stereotypes, I’ve faced it all. But I’m honest and I’ve always felt its either my way or no way at all and I’d rather do it the Hard Kaur way.
“I have always been working on breaking away from all the stereotypes, I worked hard, honed my skills, and used them to prove people wrong. I want to give power to other people to turn negatives into positives,” she added.
Kaur’s first solo album Supawoman was released in 2007.
In October 2012, she released her second music album titled ‘Party Loud All Year: P.L.A.Y.’ which featured ten songs and all of which were written and composed by her.
