Mika Singh Blames Daler Paaji For Being Single, Shares How He Once Ended His Relationship Behind His Back

Mika Singh and Daler Mehndi are one of the most admired celebrity sibling duos in the Indian music industry. While they have a completely different genre and generation, they are loved by all (Gen Z for Mika and 90s kids for Daler). Both brothers are supremely talented in their respective areas of music, and their bond remains as tight as any Indian sibling duo.

Daler Mehndi is the protective elder brother to Mika and we have heard their stories multiple times which prove that they are just like any other sibling. In fact, the reason why Mika is still unmarried might have something to do with his brother Daler Mehndi. Apparently the elder brother broke him up with his then girlfriend without his knowledge over a phone.

Mika, who turns 44 today, revealed the reason why he never married in an interview a few years ago. He was in a serious relationship with a girl in 1995 when he was a guitarist for his brother. He gave Daler’s landline number to the girl since that was an era without mobile phones and he was living in his apartment.

He said, “One day when she called, God knows what Daler paaji told her, she broke up with me and I was heartbroken. The only reason for me not getting married is Daler paaji.” Daler Mehndi breaking him up with his girlfriend is every older desi brother ever.

Daler Mehndi brushed off his claims saying, “Uski shaadi nahi ho rahi hai, zaroor uski apni internal failure ya wajah hogi (If he is not getting married, it must be due to some internal failure or some other reason).”

However, he is adamant to get him married soon. In an interview with a leading daily, he said,  “Main usse pichli baar mila toh maine kaha, ‘Tu shaadi kar. Main chahta hoon tere dher saare bachche ho. Itna paisa hai, itna kuch hai, yeh kahaan jayega?’ Meri koshish rahegi iss saal, chahe maar ke hi usko ghodi pe bithaunga, lekin shaadi karaunga (When I met him last, I told him to get married and have lots of children. He has so much money, where will it go? I will try to get him married this year, even if I have to do it by force).”

If what Mika said was true, this was a pro big brother move that Daler pulled off by ending his relationship over the phone and later denying it. Do you think he said ‘na na na na na re’ to the girl?
