On the road, Guru likes to be normal
On the heels of his upcoming international song, Slowly Slowly, which features American rapper Pitbull, singersongwriter Guru Randhawa has been on the road, touring the country. The 27-year-old loves the time spent on the road.
“An artist’s life is on the road. I absolutely love the concept of touring, meeting and performing for people who love my music. It’s a great moment for me to connect with so many fans who love my music and concerts are the best way to be in the moment where an artist can see his fan enjoy the his song,” he says.
And while he is on the road, Guru likes to be a normal human being. Eating at the dhaba, on the road, is one way that Guru makes sure he feels normal. “Before I was famous, I used to travel with my music and dhabas were the only place where I would eat. And I continue to do the same. Roots don’t change for a person, and for someone like me, dhabas give that feeling of ‘everything is normal’ when I am on tour,” says Guru, who is known for songs such as Suit Suit (2016), Lahore (2017) and Made in India (2018).
Despite all the fame and crazy fan base, he loves to stay true to his roots, and makes sure that he doesn’t get carried away as an artist. “It’s all down to the roots I guess. I mean to say that when one gets famous and has fans, then it’s the artist inside the human being who is achieving all this. The rest of the human being still remains and is still the same. That goes for me as well. I think it’s a great feeling to be normal, and being who you are,” adds Guru.
