Tell us something about yourself which the audience isn’t aware of.

I’ve been washing my hands nonstop way before corona.

Who inspired you to make music?

Music is all I’ve known how to do. It’s been a part of my life since I was very young. It’s something that I feel is a part of who I am. No one in particular inspired me to do it; music itself inspired me to do it.

What would you be doing right now, if it wasn’t for a career in showbiz?

I’d probably be working on a farm somewhere, far away from people.

Any favouites when it comes to music?

From Beethoven and Mozart to Bach, it all influenced me a lot, along with obviously, our Eastern music. R.D Burman sahib, Kishore Kumar sahib, Mohammad Rafi sahib, Laxmikant Pyarelal, etc have all been my favourites. I am also a huge Michael Jackson fan. Moreover, the band Muse has been a huge favourite, along with Coldplay, growing up.

You least favourite part about this line of work?

There’s no least favourite part, I enjoy what it is. It comes with a certain responsibility; there are certain sides that are harder than others. But it’s all a part of achieving that one thing, so there’s no particular bad part of it.

If you could change anything about the music industry, what would it be?

I’d want people to take more risks; I think it’s become a bit like ‘playing too safe’.

Your musical approach?

I have always grown up really liking cinematic film music. But as a whole, my music always represents how I’m feeling.

What’s your take on music in the digital age?

I think it has given all of us a lot of autonomy.
