How do you see your journey of 20 years in the industry?
It’s hard to believe I’m turning 20! People keep giving me compliments that I look young but the reality is that I have been singing since I was a child, so it has been 20 years. I have been fortunate and I am thankful that I could fulfill my dream of singing in films. I belonged to a small town so I was not sure if my dreams would come true or not. We moved from Rishikesh to Delhi and finally to Mumbai and those memories are priceless.
