Bollywood playback singer diagnosed with rare condition, asks for prayers and cautions against loud music.

Mumbai, June 18, 2024 – Renowned Bollywood playback singer Alka Yagnik revealed that she has been diagnosed with a rare sensorineural nerve hearing loss due to a sudden viral attack. In a heartfelt Instagram post on Monday, Yagnik shared the news with her fans, friends, and well-wishers, explaining her recent absence from the public eye.

Alka Yagnik, celebrated for her contributions to Bollywood music in the 90s with hits like “Pardesi Pardesi,” “Gazab Ka Hai Din,” and “Taal Se Taal Mila,” began her message by describing her sudden hearing loss. “A few weeks ago, as I walked out of a flight, I suddenly felt I was not able to hear anything,” she wrote. The singer explained that her condition has been diagnosed by doctors as a rare sensorineural nerve hearing loss caused by a viral attack, a setback that caught her completely unaware.

In her Instagram post, Yagnik requested her followers’ prayers and support as she navigates this challenging period. She also issued a cautionary note to her fans and young colleagues about the dangers of exposure to very loud music and headphones. “One day, I wish to share the health perils of my professional life,” she added, highlighting the physical toll of her career in playback singing.

Yagnik, whose last social media activity was a Mother’s Day post in May 2024, expressed her hope to recalibrate her life and return to her fans soon. “Your support and understanding will mean the world to me in this critical hour,” she wrote.

Singers Ila Arun, Sonu Nigam, Tauseef Akhtar, and Paushali Sahu have all expressed their wishes for Yagnik’s speedy recovery. Despite her health challenges, Alka recently recorded the song “Choli” for Rajesh A Krishnan’s female-led heist comedy *Crew* and the track “Naram Kalija” for the Imtiaz Ali-helmed biographical drama *Amar Singh Chamkila*.

As she recovers, Yagnik’s message serves as a reminder of the importance of protecting one’s hearing, especially in professions that involve prolonged exposure to loud sounds.
