Inspiration

Friends and family

Apart from the amazing musicians I see, I’m highly inspired by my family, my manager, my friends and all my team members.
I’m surrounded by hardworking and honest people and that pushes me to try and become a good person.

Book

Atlas Shrugged

My favourite book is Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand. Though I don’t agree with everything that’s written in it, the book has played a major role in shaping my thoughts.

Travel destination

Chennai

In India, my favourite place to visit is Chennai, though I love my hometown Mumbai. I have a special connect with that place because of the people I’ve met there. And the food is amazing: no trip to Chennai is complete without eating Murugan idli. Outside of India, Austria is my new favourite travel destination. I recently went there with my sister and it felt like heaven on Earth! The mountains, the architecture, the history and art, the quaint lanes and the lakes — everything is beyond beautiful.

Food

Chaat

Though I’m a big fan of South Indian food, chaat has to be my all-time favourite. I can never say no to ‘pani puri’ even if I’m really full.
