fans from world over are telling us "We need sanup on babbaal talkies". One interview with him and it's as clear as a day why ladies, with their
boyfriends, are asking to buy his albums. Amdist this hysteria sorrounding him, he sees so serene, so untouched by it all. This handsome and
soft-spoken singer is a must watch in comin days "..
Wel come to Babbaal talkies.
- Thank you so much, great pleasure with you
guys. A big hey to all the viewers who have been reading me.
So, how much have u changed since "voice"? How was the reaction from both
outside and inside the industry?
- First of all, believe me, I must say nothing has changed within myself. After 'voice', lots of realization
has been improved within me and my singing. Thank-x to all the listener who have admired me and my work so far.
Please keep going......
- Reaction was quite
okey and it's positive, and liveup to that's of my expectation. And to be honest, all the friends and seniors , inside the industry, have also been
what made u to get in the music scenario?
- I actually don't know what pushed me upon at the risk of
sounding harsh, I must admit that nothing , but music, within me, somewhere inspired me a lot, since I was a child.
It's no more secret
that you have a sweet voice but proper appereciation has not come your way yet, what may the reason behind?
- Definately! I think every
singer must have his/her repetoire, and within these repetoire, it is obvious to have judgements in a proper way, so I belive that I must increse my
Any great work doing these days ?
- Not yet, but planning some, soon.
What makes you excite- a good
lyric or a good melody ?
- Being a singer, I am always facinated by sounds, and again writing is also an art, so I don't want to
descriminate, but want to let everyone know that I am very choosy when it comes to lyrics selection.
Who do u think your musical
- There are a lots. Sometimes I fantacize that I am somewhere between classical period and learning somthing from Mozart, and
sometimes I fantasize that Al-ded-Meola has come to my room. Besides, My fav. are A R Rehman, G3(Jeo-satriani, Steve-Vei, Eric jonhson), Rajendra
Prasanna(Famous Indian Classical Flautist) and many more, There are many in my mind, But still they are Superb.
Whom do you listen in
Nepali music Front?
- Bhakta Raj Acharya , As a singer, I adore him a lot, he is a living legend. As a musican Amar Gurung is fantastic than
Well, We all know that you are a professional music teacher too, tell us something about that.
- I give some music
lessions at times, but , to be honest, I am not a music teacher but a singer teacher at St. Mary's high school.
Are you satisfied with
the reaction you got from ur fans?
- Of course I am, Appriciation is something that encouraged me to devote myself more in music, and I am
level best to provide something different than the usuals.
Do you belive that trainnings are needed for the singers?
on self Realization. If one knows his/her voice and how it sounds, its very important to realize the importance of trainings. But I also belive that
music is not completly bounded with trainings its all about how one percives from his/ her sight.
Tell Ur Attitudes

- A complete no for me, but I don't want to discriminate one's right.
Sin According to you....
- If you are commeting a sin, no one, will punish you. But its
punishment is more than a third degree torture.
- Plz spell it from its back, and tell me what you understand.
Voilence in the face of revolution..

This is my first song recorded when I was 16 so I'm emotionally attached with it and because of people love for this song I decided to record it again in 2012. And suddenly there was a man named Kiran Khatiwada, director who loved my song and we decided to make video out of it.
Well when thinking about this video, it was really hard for me handling things myself but later got help and some ideas from s2s and Roshan, which made it lot easier for the video. The concept of this video is kind of simple but unique with the story, with some dance steps, with some VFX in the video.
Since Rush was done in Rush, during work schedule of "In transit" we wanted to take our own time... Hence, we named it In Transit.
