Ranu's viral video has been viewed over 4 million times and comments are still pouring in on her soulful performance as netizens can't get enough of her. The showrunners who have signed Ranu are also bearing her travel expenses, as she was facing trouble in getting travel permissions because she did not possess the required documents to verify her credentials.
Ranu Mondal has also been getting offers to perform in Mumbai, Kolkata, Kerala and Bangladesh. She has also received many contracts to record her own music album. Guess dreams do come true for some people!
