She grew up listening and singing his songs in various competitions and that made her realise where her dreams lie.

When I was hired to sing for the LG ad, I had no idea that I would be singing a duet with Shaan Sir, neither did sir know about it. After rehearsing the song for few times Shaan Sir complimented me by saying ‘Great job, now we are singing duet!’ it meant a lot to me. I was spell bounded by the amount energy sir has and I was inspired to give my best!”
