About 60 years ago, she was born into a well-to-do family. Unfortunately, she got separated from her parents. Later, her marriage to a cook of late Bollywood star Feroz Khan took her from West Bengal to Mumbai. Then "cracks" in her family emerged and her struggle for livelihood increased.

Cut to 2019, today she is the Ranaghat station singer Ranu Mondal, an Internet sensation and a budding Bollywood singer.

Ranu, who became an overnight sensation after her rendition of Lata Mangeshkar's classic song, Ek Pyar Ka Nagma went viral on social media, recorded a song for Himesh Reshammiya. The track titled Teri Meri Kahaani will be used in Himesh's upcoming film Happy, Hardy and Heer.

Ranu also made an appearance on Superstar Singer and met with the kids and judges, including Himesh.

Before that she was given a makeover and has reportedly also received multiple offers to appear on singing and talent hunt shows.

"I am very happy and feeling great. I have already recorded five to six songs. The thing is, music facilities in Mumbai mean a lot to me. They are important. To commute to and from my home to Mumbai on plane is also difficult. It would have been good had there been a house in Mumbai. But I don't have to think about it. God is there," she said.
