About

 

I am a professional music composer residing in the cine hub of India, Mumbai.  “Tanu Weds Manu” , the feature film, marks my debut in Bollywood as a music director An optimist at heart, I thrive in every situation to get the best out of it.  I believe more in constructive action than fate. It may sound childish, but I do believe nothing is impossible to achieve if one sets out to. Every novel idea needs time to evolve provided one gives his/her heart and soul to it. These guiding principles in life have brought me this far in my musical journey and gives me the strength to believe the road ahead will be as rewarding.

Music for me..

For me, music is my only religion, faith and salvation. I believe this universal language binds the world together to oneness despite all diversities. Good music never fails to reach the ones with an ear for it. With the help of internet today, multi cultural music has a greater reach across the world and amidst this I find myself at the brink of taking a leap and reach out to the world with my compositions in different genres of music.

How did it all start?

Being a member of a non-musical family I discovered a familiarity to music during my formative years almost accidentally, it must have been some divine blessing that I recognized my ability to appreciate and also occasionally compose music much early in life. The moment of truth was when I played a key instrument and realized how comfortably the tunes flowed through my fingers. That got me further interested and I started listening to a lot of music. Of all the artists, the perfection and the voice of Michael Jackson really stirred something inside me. He inspired me to wonder, if listening to music is such a pleasure, what would it be like to create it? Quite instinctively, I found myself playing with different notes and I already had a library of variety of scores. Thereon, music became my passion forever.

My Inspirations…

I grew up listening to all kinds of music. My early influences have been pop, soft rock, Sufi, classics, country and R&B. Many eminent artists who have inspired me are MJ, R.D. Burman, Neyo, A.R. Rahman, George Michael, Ustad Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, Norah Jones, Lataji, Stevie Wonder, Nat King Cole, Pundit Jasraj, Lionel Richie, Christina, Mariah, Ashaji , actually the list is endless. Above all, Michael Jackson was one soul whose boundless energy and enthralling music gripped me the very first time I heard him.

Musical journey so far…

After High School, I pursued my then interest to join National Institute of Design, Ahmedabad, Gujarat, and studied Films & Video Communication. I specialized in films not only because I loved the medium but also because music is an integral part of film-making. I started my career by composing music for ad films, corporate theme songs and documentaries. And after a couple of years, I made up my mind to singularly focus on a career in music and audio production. It was important to invest some time to develop a deeper understanding of the craft and also to ready myself for the big break in Bollywood. The efforts bore fruits and I  got my first break as a  music director for the feature film from “Tanu Weds Manu” director, Aanand Rai. The film maker in me is budding inside and will definitely bloom sometime later in life. Currently, Internet is my best friend and I love being the online entrepreneur.  I enjoy promoting and harnessing its power of reach for all my creative pursuits.
