YouTube star Avish Sharma’s debut original track “Phir Dikhi Tu” receives whooping response

Avish Sharma’s debut with an original song has taken a while but now “Phir Dikhi Tu” heralds the arrival of this prodigious talent. Released on the TM Music label, the song embraces the modern electronic genre, backed by a minimalistic video. The video has been beautifully shot in a basement, with trained contemporary dancers Jai Nair & Kirti which gives this song a very international look.

Interestingly, Avish Sharma’s Phir Dikhi Tu was heard for the first time at TM Talent Management’s in-house IP All About Music.  All About Music Conference addresses the real challenges and growth opportunities charted in the industry by inviting national and international speakers for panel discussions, keynotes, workshop, masterclasses, connect corners, networking opportunities and more! It is a great platform for artists to come together and share their insights. The song has released on the 29th of September.

After moving to New Zealand from India at the age of nine, Avish’s inclination towards music grew stronger, helped undoubtedly by his dad’s background in event production. Through his teenage years he built a fan following on YouTube that resulted in millions of views for his Hindi song covers.

In his early 20s, he began exploring different genres of music which led to the realization that there’s more to this art form than just becoming a “playback singer”. The idea of being able to express himself by creating his own music appealed to him and from there began his journey of composing and writing his own songs.

“Phir Dikhi Tu” is his first original single. It’s a song that speaks about unattainable closure, a deeply personal take on being stuck in a loop of trying to get over someone.

He says, “writing this song helped me get through a tough phase a couple of years ago. I was struggling to move on from a relationship I’d just gotten out of and even though it feels a bit of a cliché to say this – it made a world of difference to put my thoughts down on paper, and into music. I feel this particular mood is universal, almost every person who’s ever loved has gone through something like this, and I hope it brings someone solace, in the way it did for me.”

The song has been produced by Mayank Choudhary and lyrics co-written by Pooja Sharma.

How old was Riya Deepsi (Gandhari) when she shot for Star Plus’ Mahabharat ?

Star Plus brought back Mahabharat and the audience couldn’t get enough of the show. The star studded show helmed by Sidharth Kumar Tewarys’ Swastik Productions includes Sourabh Raaj Jain, Shaheer Sheikh, Pooja Sharma, Arpit Ranka and many more. The star cast recently interacted with the producer to reminisce about the good old days. During the interaction, Sidharth revealed an interesting detail about one of the youngest cast members.

 Riya Deepsi the actress who essayed the role of Gandhari at the young age of 17 gets nostalgic and shares her thoughts. A role that even a senior artist would be scared to touch in terms of its magnificence. But Riya has done justice to the character and played it with sheer conviction.

Speaking on the same Riya stated, “Mahabharat was my first TV show where I played one of the important characters and I am immensely grateful for this opportunity. I was just seventeen and the actors playing my sons were around ten to twelve years elder to me. The entire unit helped me play the role of Gandhari with apt make-up, costumes and brilliantly written script. I was happy that I could convince the audience by playing such a mature role and for me, that’s an achievement.”

Mahabharat is now showcasing the war sequence and it is considered to be one of the most brilliantly shot sequences.

Tune in to Star Plus every day at 8:30 pm to watch the glimpses of the great war of Kurukshetra
