How has your journey of India’s Raw Star (IRS) been so far?
Beautiful! It is like I am living my dream. This is the first time I am away from my home for such a long time. It is six months now since the time I left my home for the show, I went to Chicago then came back and started shooting, it is bit difficult to leave the family and stay away from them but at the same time I am getting to learn many new things through this show. It is beautiful as I am meeting new musicians every day, we practice and listen to the music so it is fun. I am lucky to work with the talented artists who are experienced from this field.
How has this show helped you to flourish your singing skills?
The thing which I have nourished through the show is my performance. I also got to develop as a performer with the help of this show. I have the ability to write and sing my songs but with this show I have polished my skills and nourished it for my performance.
How has India’s Raw Star helped you to change your identity?
People have loved my music and appreciated the same. I like to sing songs that are filled with love and with which people can relate to. I ma thankful to the people because they have accepted me and my music. People know me now, I have got an identity through this show.
Which was your favorite performance in IRS?
I did a Bollywood mashup using a Guitar when Deepika Padukone -Arjun Kapoor had come on the sets for promoting their film Finding Fanny. That performance is very much close to my heart as it was loved by all.
Which artist according to you is your competitor in the show?
No, I personally don’t feel any artist in this show is my competitor; every artist has an individual style. But yes my favorites are Rituraj and Mohit are brilliant when they perform.
What are your plans after IRS gets over?
Himesh Reshammiya has offered me an opportunity to sing for a company. I aspire to become a Music Director as I want to write, compose and sing my own songs. Recently I have composed four songs for a fiction show Veera and got good comments over it so would like to continue it further.
We wishes Darshan all the good luck for his future!
