Baadshah’s success wasn’t unexpected, says Pratyul Joshi
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.
