Punjab’s Five-Year-Old TikTok star Is A Daily Wager’s Daughter

A little Sardar boy rolling his eyes and delivering prompt one-liners in TikTok videos has Punjab in splits these days. The videos have become a major draw amid the lockdown. But what the 5-year-old’s fans don’t know is that the “boy in patka” they see on screen is actually a girl — Noorpreet Kaur, aka Noor, from village Bhinder Kalan of Moga.

While the nation waits for her next videos, many are unaware that she is a daughter of a daily wager in Moga village.

Coming from a under privileged family, Noor’s father, Satnam Singh, works as a labourer at a brick-kiln and her mother is a homemaker.

Noor studies in Nursery at the government school in her village. Her sister goes to the village’s government primary school.

Sandeep Toor, whose TikTok account now has crossed 8 lakh followers, says that both kids used to visit his shop to buy grocery when one day he just thought of experimenting. “Earlier, I was uploading only my videos but then I thought of experimenting with kids. Noor and Jashan used to visit my shop often and I noticed, Noor’s parents had raised her like a boy. She used dress up like a boy and sometimes wear a patka too. She would even talk like a boy. The entire idea just clicked with viewers. “Earlier, I had only three lakh followers on TikTok but as soon as I uploaded Noor’s videos, my following increased by seven lakhs in a week,” he added.

A shy kid in real life

Noor comes across as a talkative kid in the videos. Speaking to media, she said, “I study in nursery class. I like acting in these videos. I say what Sandeep uncle tells me to.”

Her sister Jashanpreet (9), however, claims, “Since our videos have gone viral, relatives and family friends who never used to speak to us are calling my parents. They are asking if they can take Noor to their home for some days but my mother has denied, at least till lockdown is there.”

A little celebrity in the village

Noor also has been approached by TV channels for interviews. “We are not letting Noor give interviews as of now. It was all for fun but now hundreds of calls are pouring in everyday. Her parents are in disbelief still that their kid has become so famous instantly but entire village is very happy,” Sandeep revealed.

One of the videos starring Noor that has been widely shared has her playing a boy who is scared to share his school result with his father. As the moment finally arrives in the video, the boy tells his father, “Yaar doctor daa munda fail ho geya.. bapu yaar sarpanch di kudi vi fail ho gai..’ (Doctor’s son has flunked, sarpanch’s daughter too has failed to clear her exams).”

When the father presses on with the question and demand’s to know his son’s result, Noor dressed as the sardar boy replies, “Tu kehda DC lagga, tera vala vi fail ho geya….(Are you posted as a deputy commissioner? Your kid has also failed).”
