The journey……

Born and brought up in Delhi, and being a south Indian by birth, enabled me to involve in both North Indian & South Indian languages, Music, including Western Music. The involvement interested me into exploring 16 languages including English.

 

The journey continued with Jingles and albumswhich included “Mehndi Ki Raat”, “Mehndi Ni Mehndi”, “Punjabi Non-stop” in Punjabi, recorded in Mumbai.

 

The Break……

“Dhinam dhorum vaanguven Idhayam” the scintilatingfamous Jingle for “Idhayam Oil” picturised on “Jothika”, gave me the ticket to enter the Tamil Music Industry.
