It was during his childhood days, that he discovered his passion to build songs and artists. In his words, “I remember, my father’s friend was a singer and I always used to get immersed in his singing and his struggles and whatever that goes behind in the making of a song. I never had a flair for singing, but knew I wanted to do something in this industry. It was then, that I decided to join this industry, and since then there was no looking back.”
He single-handedly managed various artists and projects that turned out to be a huge success. Dream of becoming a bigger name in the same realm, he decided to shift to Mohali. It was then; he has now started working on various upcoming movie projects as well.
When asked about one thing he earned throughout his journey till now, he said, “RESPECT! When I first started my journey, people didn’t know me at all. They never used to respect my word also; it didn’t carry any weight back then. But, now, with the immense amount of hard work, dedication, and consistency I put into my work, people started recognizing and the best part, the word about my work reaches much before than me.”
He further added, “If God continues to shower its blessing on me like this, I am sure, I will be able to take this industry and its artist to new heights.”
