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.
