Born on April 5, 1985, Arti Singh had a difficult childhood. According to reports, the TV actress was only a baby when her birth mother passed away. She was then adopted by her mother's sister-in-law, who took care of her like her own child. (All pictures/Arti Singh's Instagram account)
Arti Singh is actor-comedian Krushna Abhishek's younger sister. While Arti spent her childhood with a relative in Lucknow, Krushna lived with their birth father in Mumbai. Now, however, the siblings are inseparable and several of Arti's social media photos and videos feature Krushna.
Did you know Govinda is Arti Singh's uncle? Arti is immensely proud of her Chi Chi mama and in several interviews has said how Govinda is like a father figure to her and Krushna.

In an old interview, Arti had said, "I have a close circle of friends and Ayaz is one of them. We always meet with other friends. He is a nice guy and nobody would want to lose him as a friend. People should just stop linking us, as we both want to find suitable partners." Ayaz and Arti worked together on the show, Parichay, where they played husband and wife.
Arti Singh is proud of the fact that she has finally carved a niche for herself and isn't in brother Krushna's shadow anymore. She shared in an interview, "Krushna had made his name and I was nowhere around. I was only known as his sister, but now, people know me by my name. Now, I earn respect without his name. I have struggled to reach where I am today."
