In conversation with the award winning advertisement filmmaker about his debut feature film, Ghoomketu, which is now streaming on Zee5.
What music did you listen to growing up?
I grew up listening to Shobha Gurtu, I didn’t know how great she was as a kid coz she was my mum.
What aspect of making music excites you the most and what gets you most discouraged?
Hypocrisy discourages for obvious reasons, but it also encourages me to do better music!
What does music do to you?
If you or anyone can explain what God is, I can also explain what music does to me. All the Pundits and Ustads have tried and they are still trying to explain.
'We must not be seduced by the contemporary, and try to reorient the present to the modern and the historical, and while doing so test our own imaginations.'
