I used to sing during my school days out of interest. I was also an active participant in singing competitions held at school and later in college. I started singing and uploading my songs on Youtube. Youtube was the platform that helped me reach out to the right audience and people started recognizing me. Slowly without my realization, this interest warped into my passion.

What is your specialization in music?

I am not a trained singer. It all stems from my passion and interest in music. However, to be specific, I focus on melodious songs. Apart from that, I have also covered fast, slow, romantic and English songs. “A singer has no limits and should try every aspect of music”, that’s what I believe in.

If not a singer what would you be?

Hmm..that’s a tough one.  An actor may be. I was always interested in modeling. I acted in two short movies as well but could not continue because by that time I already found my passion in life, music.

Could you tell me more about your passions?

Singing as I mentioned earlier is my core passion, I can’t bear to distance myself from music, you will either find me singing, humming, thinking about my next song, recording or listening to a song. Apart from singing I like photography, modeling, acting, and sketching.

Where do you see yourself in the next five years?

I would definitely like myself to be a playback singer in 5 Years and I want to sing for Akshay Kumar because he is my favourite actor.

Projects you have worked on?

I have written, composed and sung a song ‘Life kitoh lag gayi’ for a short movie called ‘Chhuttiya’ I know it sounds something else but its ‘Chhuttiyan” to be precise, I acted in the movie as well.

I did another short movie called ‘Choose’ as a lead actor.

I am the winner of T-SERIES YouTube singing competition 2015, where all the top 10 winners got a chance to visit T-SERIES studios, Noida and got an opportunity to record a song at the studio.The song recording is available on the T-Series YouTube channel.

What is your dream project?

My dream project is singing for a Bollywood movie whose music director is Mithoon. I really love his work and the type of melodious songs he composes.

How has the journey been by far?

I’m someone who has no Bollywood or Tollywood experience and the journey so far has been good. Making a mark amongst millions of people is tough. But I am trying hard by just following what I love and that’s music.

Like many engineering students, I got a Campus Placement too. I had the opportunity to start my career as soon as I graduated from college. Initially, I had to concentrate on my career as a Software Engineer but later I realized how important it was for me to pursue my passion – MUSIC. I started learning music during the weekends and sometimes I would manage to attend music classes after work despite having to travel for an average of 4 hours for work every day. I began making covers and performing at events. Later I joined a corporate music band which gave me a lot of exposure as a singer.

I got a training in Carnatic vocals. I sing bhajans in Hindustani and manage to sing some Western during live performances. I love exploring different styles of singing.

Music is something that is really very close to my heart. It is just magical and fascinating to know that all the music that the world has ever known is composed of only 7 notes. Well, apart from music, I also love baking.

Where do you see yourself in the next five years?

Right now I want to try and explore different areas of music and also various opportunities in the IT industry. In the next five years, I want to become a full-time musician and performer.

Projects you have worked on?

I have performed at various corporate and college events in Hyderabad. I have been working on a few cover songs and mashups. I have also sung chorus for a few songs in Telugu.

What was your dream project?

My dream had always been to be able to work with Rehman sir. I wish it comes true someday *fingers crossed* However, I had the opportunity to perform for over 9,000 people at a corporate event. It felt like a dream performing for such amazing crowd and the whole experience was magical. I love performing on stage.

How has the journey been so far?

The journey so far had been more of a learning experience and I enjoy and love every bit of it. I hope to do more projects and looking forward to working on a Telugu musical series very soon.
