Akriti Kakar Says, “No Preferential Treatment Being His Wife On Set”- Deets Inside
Many couples keep personal and private life different but singer Akriti Kakar and her husband Chirag Arora love to work together. They have collaborated on many projects in the past, but their latest music video, Thomkiya Thomkiya, is special.
Sharing how working with her husband is like, Kakar says, “It’s always such a relief to work with Chirag. He’s a hard taskmaster. No preferential treatment being his wife on set.” Arora adds, “As a creative person, I share every idea, story, lyrics, or thought with Akriti, as she’s my bouncing board.”
The duo has collaborated on music videos like Swag Wali Bride, Yaara Seeli Seeli, Tere Jeha Hor Disda, Akhiyaan Nu Rehn De, and Jai Jai Gange, among others, in the past. They admit that they do have creative differences, but for good. “We are two creative individuals and it’s bound to happen. Most times, that’s where miracles are born. We often have diametrically opposite ideas about his scripts or the songs I make. There’s endless brainstorming. But then we know these are disagreements, not differences,” says Kakar, as Arora adds, “If there are no disagreements, then there’s very little room for improvement. We keep ideating with each other all the time on how to put all our resources, time, and energy to better use.” Says Kakar, as Arora adds, “If there are no disagreements, then there’s very little room for improvement.

But in addition to their private lives, they also agree to make each other a better artist. “Chirag loves music and we have similar tastes. So every time I create a piece of music, he’s the first one to hear it. He even gives me non-musician feedback. He’s why I’m finally back to releasing independent music. He inspires me to be a better artist each day, do more Riyaaz, and to constantly reinvent myself,” says Kakar. Arora says that his singer wife always pushes him to think out of the box. “She encourages me to go out of my comfort zone and to get the best out of my time. She’s a go-getter and inspires me to be one,” he says.
