“The journey is obvious. I knew I was born to make music, and my instincts led me to explore various flavors of music by getting involved with projects in the commercial and entertainment world. Tallika is close to my heart. I have spent hours creating the mood of each scene by adding soundtracks and songs. Collaborating with various singers and jamming with them allowed me to touch the authentic flavor of each genre. I am happy to say that I created songs in Hindi, English, Gujarati, and Punjabi for a single feature film which itself is a thrill to watch on a big screen. The music that can be commercially successful has to come from the roots of each note. My favorite from the album is the rap song sung by me and Mitz a.k.a. Mitali Jani” – Maharaja.
