1. Tell us more about your background and journey.

I was born in Nathdwara city near Udaipur (Rajasthan). I belong to a government teacher’s family. When I was a kid, I wanted to become a dancer like Prabhudeva and Michael Jackson. I’ve learned 4 styles of dance forms, and after 8th standard, I fell in love with music and started learning music, I've learned basic music studies from Udaipur and advance music learning from Chennai.

Academically, I've graduated in Psychology, and professionally I’m running my own music academy and production studio. Apart from that, I've worked as a stuff writer in 2 Bollywood movies.
1. Qarib Qarib Single (2016)
2. Karwaan The Movie (2018)

2. When did you first decide you wanted to pursue music and how did you start?

My mother loves music so she told me I should learn it too. So, when I was in 6th or 7th standard, I thought learning music isn’t a bad idea after all. Soon, I fell in love with it. In the beginning, we started searching for a good music teacher, I found some teachers but was not satisfied with them so I travelled 45 kilometres daily from Nathdwara to Udaipur. Later, I went to Chennai for higher music studies.

3. Who is your favourite artist and why?

I don't have anyone specific favourite artist because every artist has their own speciality. However, there are 3 artists who inspired me a lot in music. First is the living legend, Mr Hariharan Sahab and the amazing composer Mr A.R. Rahman sir and lastly, Mr Mohan Kanan sir from the band Agnee. They are the biggest inspiration in my life.

4. Can you throw some light on opportunities one gets as a singer?

In today's social media world you have lots and lots of opportunities. If you have a talent and you have a good attitude, the audience will lift you up and you'll get work from all around the world.

5. Is format training required or can one train themselves purely on the basis of talent?

Yes, training is required because it will guide you to your goal but if you don't have any teacher or academy there then you have YouTube, right? Where there is a will, there is a way. You just need a good inspiration and you'll work hard.

6. What piece of advice would you like to give to future and aspiring artists?

Don't just depend on the social media platform, you need to work on your basic. Sometimes you'll feel that people are not recognizing you or they are not appreciating you. It's not easy but you have to just try to improve yourself every day, keep learning and keep your good work on with a positive attitude.

You need clear focus, strong faith in almighty and remember one thing maybe you will not succeed every time but you still have to work more to make it count.

7. Which is your favourite book and why?

"Wings of Fire" by our former president Dr A.P.J. Abdul Kalam. This book has a detailed description of how great things can be achieved through simple thoughts. Always keep your dream high, goals clear, plan perfect and work through people.
