JENNY JOHAL

Birthday: 18 April

Star sign: Aries

Age: 23

Schooling and college: MGN Public School, Jalandhar. Masters in music vocal from Hmv Jalandhar.

Profession: Singer.

Reason behind choosing this profession: Music is my passion. Music flows in my veins like blood. I have never ever dreamt of becoming anything else other than a singing superstar. I am learning music since I was a child and after completing my masters in music I assured myself to be in this line and keep the Punjabi music culture alive.

Jenny Johal has worked very hard to achieve where she is today and she says, “All the credit goes to my mother who has been there all the time. She’s my friend, my guide and my everything.

Personal style aesthetic

I feel style is inbuilt. It cannot be created or imitated. I have my own definition of style. I am not at all confined to any particular form of fashion. Whatever I wear I make sure that I feel confident about it and it should look trendy and classy.

Family bonds

My family has always been super supportive throughout my musical journey, from the days of my struggle to up till now. I have got full support from my family. I feel blessed to have such a caring family.

You as a person

Loud, perky & a fun loving girl. I love hanging out with my friends. I believe in living life to the fullest. For every moment I spend with my loved ones, I make sure to make the most out of it.

The most difficult project you ever undertook?

Yet to come.

Where do you see yourself 5 Years down the line?

You like to shop and favourite shopping destination

I am a shopaholic. I always feel I am falling short of clothes and shoes & all no matter how much I shop. My favourite brands are Adidas Originals, Kazo, Juicy Couture, Gucci & Diesel, and I can shop anywhere in the world. There is no personal favourite.

When I don’t get enough sleep, I use?

I listen to some good relaxing music. Some kind of meditation track with sleep inducing beats. Music, I feel is the best healer. So in whatever state of mind, I listen to some quality music that gives relaxation to my mind and heart.

Have you ever been a victim of casting couch?

I have been struggling in Industry for a long period of time. I came across many such challenging situations in life but I never compromised with my principles and values to get something. I waited for my right time. Though it was quite depressing for me at times, yet I never gave up hope and faced everything with courage. I also invested all my time and energy in working hard to fulfill all my dreams. I believe whatever my mind can conceive; I can have it and that too on my own terms and conditions.

Celebrity crush during teenage

It has always been Salman Khan. I still love everything about him. In Punjabi industry I would say-Diljit Dosanjh.

Take on Punjabi Industry?

The Punjabi industry is growing in a great way. Even the non-speakers of Punjabi language have started listening to Punjabi songs and the Bollywood industry is also taking up Punjabi songs in their movies, which is a great achievement for our industry. However, the quality of singers is somewhat deteriorating, as there are some cases of copy paste, that should be avoided. But in all other aspects, the industry is rising leaps & bounds.
