I grew up in Lucknow where I sang as a child artist on All In­dia Ra­dio since the age of 11. I have trained in clas­si­cal mu­sic for 12 years. My guru late Shri. Pan­dit Ganesh Prasad Mishraji would come home to teach my un­cle. I used to sit there lis­ten­ing to him—this went on for two years and, fi­nally, he started train­ing me when I turned eight. I even started do­ing shows with Anup Jalota there­after, who is like a sec­ond fa­ther to me. I never aimed to be­come a singer, but I al­ways thought I could give it a try. What gave me con­fi­dence to even give it a shot was when I won an in­ter-school singing com­pe­ti­tion at age 12. That’s when I thought I could do it.
