Excerpts from the interview
Tell us about your journey from Engineering to playback singing?
I was always inclined towards singing and participated in various competitions. I was also leaning music under the guidance of Ustad Maqbool Hussain Khan. Like every other college guy I too had my struggle days. But I had a belief that I will do it one day and here I am with so many songs.

Yes, I have sung in many styles and languages like English , Punjabi , Kannada , Tamil , Telugu , Malayalam, Bhojpuri , Rajasthani, Gujrati , Marathi, Bangla , Oriya, Haryaanvi , Jhaarkhandi and many more. The most difficult language to sing in is Tamil and Telgu.
With the ongoing competition how have to manage to sing for big films as well as latest one being Janeman Aah!
I have had my share of struggle. Since day one I would send my recording and CV to composers office. I was lucky enough that I got a break soon and I have sang for Salman Khan in PREM RATAN DHAN PAYO to Akshay Kumar in OMG-OH MY GOD, KHILADI 786, Amitabh Bachchan in BHOOTNATH RETURNS, Ajay Devgn in SON OF SARDAAR and Aamir Khan in Satyamev Jayate. I soon bagged Janeman Aah which I was not sure will be pictured on Varun and Parineeti. I remember when I was given the brief I was told I need to be raunchy give a comical side to my voice and sing the word Aah like Shakti Kapoor. It was indeed fun.
