Delhi-based mu­si­cian Pratyul Joshi is rid­ing high on the suc­cess of his de­but sin­gle— Baad­shah, which has gar­nered over 500,000 hits on Youtube. How­ever, for Pratyul, it wasn’t a sur­prise. “It wasn’t en­tirely un­ex­pected, to be hon­est. I wanted to make some­thing time­less and soul­ful and be­lieved that sooner or later, it would climb the charts,” he says. But Pratyul’s suc­cess didn’t come overnight— Baad­shah was writ­ten 10 years ago. “I was in a col­lege band, still un­de­cided about tak­ing up mu­sic as ca­reer,” he says.

“Big­gest strug­gle in India isn't the fact that the work (mu­sic) is sparse but (there is no) so­cial ac­cep­tance.” Pratyul says.
