Rising star is India’s first live singing reality show. This statement itself tells us a lot about the show and its innovation. But, there is more. This season, Rising Star is out to break down all stereotypical believes in our daily lives with the tagline #UthaoSochKiDeewar. All the contestants individually have faced problems related to this topic and they have somehow managed to break barriers. Let’s have a look at our contestant stories and take inspiration.
31-year-old Mamta from Ranchi has set an example for women all over. Her young days were not all happy as her father abandoned her mother, her and her 7 sisters because he did not wish to take on their responsibility. This incident will, for anyone, result in a mental and emotional break down. But, her family made sure to go against this mentality and gain empowerment. Today, the Raut women are all self-made where 2 of them work in the army and 2 are in the police force. #UthaoSochKiDeewar

At such a young age, she is making the country see beyond geographical boundaries and making them live by #UthaoSochKiDeewar.
