How did you get into music?

I really don’t know. When I was a kid, I used to sing well. That’s when my parents insisted me to join some music classes. I have loved singing ever since I have understood the concept of music.

Why did you not choose a career in BMM or opt for IIT?

I did my graduation just for the heck of a degree. I was never into studies and I never was in favor of the concept of working 9-6. I cannot work under anyone. Plus, music interested me more than anything else.

 What or who inspired you to make your own acoustic music videos?

Well, my friends came up to me with this concept of making our own acoustic music videos. Two of my best friends, Kunal Pandit and Piyush Shankar were extremely supportive and confident and that’s what gave me a boost about it.
