The excerpts of an exclusive interview given to Reporter Live, Kochi
Have you ever expected that this video will go viral?
Not only this time I do record a lot actually and I used to post it frequently. I am not recording videos to become viral but to give out a unique and refreshing idea. Its a chance. Really we don’t know the way how the audience receives it.
The feeling you had when you unexpectedly saw the tweet of Amitabh Bachchan
Happy and it is quite overwhelming, the best day of my life. I am above clouds. Never in my dreams did I imagine that will happen.
Did Bachchan or any other notable person contacted you?
No, he hasn’t but many others contacted me. There are people who have been following me even in Instagram and all of them are dear to me.
The decision to mix the Carnatic music with western songs
It’s not a decision to mix the Carnatic music with western songs. It happened. I love all the personalities from the discipline of music who bring out the true essence of music and with apt individualism in the field.
