Popular Indian singer Alka Yagnik, who touched hearts with her mellifluous voice and gifted her fans several memorable Bollywood songs in the 90s, has revealed she is suffering from a rare hearing disorder.

"To all my fans, friends, followers and well wishers. A few weeks ago, as I walked out of a flight, I suddenly felt I was not able to hear anything," Yagnik posted on Instagram.

" Having mustered some courage in the weeks following the episode, I want to break my silence now for all my friends and well wishers who have been asking me why I’m missing in action.
It has been diagnosed by my docs as a rare sensory neural nerve hearing loss, due to a viral attack," she said.

She described the situation as a major setback.

"As I attempt to come to terms with it please keep me in your prayers. For my fans and young colleagues, I would add a word of caution regarding exposure to very loud music and headphones. One day, I wish to share the health perils of my professional life. With all your love and support I am hoping to recalibrate my life and come back to you soon. Your support and understanding will mean the world to me in this critical hour," he said.

Alka Yagnik is known for singing popular tracks like Udja Kale Kawan, Oodhni, Chori Chori Chupke Chupke, Aaye Ho Meri Zindagi Mein, and many more.


Once Alka Yagnik revealed her situation, people from music fraternity, including Sonu Nigam, wished her speedy recovery.

" I knew something was not right.. I'll see you when I get back..God speed your recovery,"Sonu Nigam posted on Instagram's comment section.

Singer Ila Arun said: " So sorry to hear this 😢 Dearest Alka I saw your picture and reacted, but the I read , it’s heartbreaking 💔 , But WithBlessings . And today’s Best Doctors you will be fine and soon we will be hearing your sweet voice Love 🥰 you always take care."
