And my passion has always been singing which got acknowledged here in Mumbai. I became Kailasa here, even my first album and jingle got released and got popular in Mumbai. You know the first compliment I ever received was at a recording studio from Ram Sampad who was literally taken aback when he heard me. He said that I had a wow factor in my voice to which I was a little hesitant since I’ve been trolled a lot and I thought that even he was probably pulling my leg. But he convinced me and said that Mumbai needed me very badly because according to him there was a vacuum of this kind of voice. When I got that kind of compliment from him, I knew God had heard my prayers. So yeah, this happened in Mumbai, and for me this city will remain my Mashuka and my Ishq for the rest of my life.”
