Indian Rapper, Hard Kaur or Taran Kaur Dhillon (born July 1979) is rapper and hip-hop singer; as well as playback singer and actor in Bollywood.
Hard Kaur was born in Kanpur, Uttar Pradesh, where he mother ran a small beauty parlour out of their house. She lost her father when she was very young and her mother’s beauty parlour was burnt to the ground. Her paternal grandparents told her and her mother to leave and go back to her parent’s house. However, they wanted to keep Kaur’s brother with them. Subsequently, Kaur, her mother and her brother moved back to her mother’s parents home, where they stayed for a few years.
In 1991 her mother remarried a British citizen and her family moved to Birmingham, England. Here her mother started working once again and studying to eventually open up another beauty salon. In the meantime, Kaur completed her schooling after developing an interest in hip-hop and slowly began her music career as a rapper.
