How were you discovered?
I used to do shows from a fairly young age. In one show called Akanksha Music Show, Tabassum heard me and suggested I move to Mumbai. I was about eight then.
How did Mast happen?
I was recording a western song with Sonu Nigam when Sandeep Chowta, music director of Mast, heard me. He liked my singing and gave me a chance.
How did you start singing?
I haven't been trained professionally. I used to sing alone on the radio.
Are you training now?
I started training under Gautam Mukherjee six months ago. He's teaching me the techniques required for playback singing.
Are you still studying?
I'm studying through correspondence. Right now, I'm in the 10th standard. My career is more important to me but I will finish my graduation.
Aren't you interested in a career in classical singing?
Not really. And I can't do both together because if you sing classical, it takes away from what is needed for playback singing. But a little later I want to sing western, maybe...
