How would you describe your sound?

Since I started learning Hindustani classical music, I’m more inclined to the classical and semi-classical style. I enjoy pop music too, however my playlist would have like Arijit Singh’s romantic songs and lots of music from Coke Studio – Pakistan! This is the sound I love and I relate to them as my genre!

What instruments do you play?

I play the harmonium time and again. These days I’m trying my hands on a Guitar!

What would be on the gag reel of your life?

I think the best gag reel for me would be me forgetting the lyrics of some punjabi songs mid-gig and turning around in a subtle way to my band to ask them if they remember them.

What is the most interesting fact about you that people don’t know?

Something that I find amusing is that, I have been singing in Punjabi but I don’t know how to talk in or read Punjabi, I do understand it though.

If you had the power to steal one artistic skill from any artistic of your choice, who and what that skill would be?

The versatility that Sunidhi Chauhan has is one of the skills I would want to take from her Ragini believes in maintaining her health by eating clean and staying fit. With her schedule of late-night recordings, shows and travel, she decided to bring more discipline for a healthier future!
