Check the interview below:

How do you balance being an actor and a musician at the same time?

I feel like it is a little difficult to juggle between both but it was always a dream for me that I wanted to fulfil. So I can’t really complain. I really want to build more music and do more shows and films.

Hopefully, more careers to add to my roster soon!

You composed the song “Jaanu Na” that hit a million streams. Tell us how did Jaanu Na happen.

It’s quite a cute story. I was working with Akarsh Khurana on a show called Jugaadistan and I’m usually really shy about my music , so I didn’t tell him about me being a musician. One night, he heard me sing post the shoot and couple of days later he asked me if I wanted to write a song. I hadn’t written a lot of Hindi but I started writing and sending drafts to him and he was so patient and supportive the entire  time . A month later we got the final draft of “Jaanu Na”

Cant thank him enough. I was so happy with the response. It also helped me to build more music.

Talk to us about your recent music video “Sukoon”

I have always loved Lisa’s music and this opportunity walked in very organically. Honestly, I heard the song and I was sold. So we started working on the right mood for the video and it was such a fun experience.

I would love to write some music with her and hopefully do some songs too.

In terms of both music and acting, Tell us about the latest projects you are working on? What’s new.

I don’t know if I can talk about my projects due to NDAs but there are shows and a film in an anthology that will be coming on OTTs next year. I could tell you this, that I play a surfer in one of them.

I also begin working on a mockumentary show that goes on floor this December.

And I am also working on my EP which I plan to release in the second half of next year.
