It has been only few weeks that Ranu Mondal has become an internet singing sensation after her video of singing a hit song of Lata Mangeshkar went viral.

I am her first husband’s daughter, and I have an elder brother and a half-brother and half-sister. We are not in touch with each other. Why don’t the other kids take responsibility of ma? Why nobody is blaming them? I want them to come forward and take care of ma along with me.”
