Music in his romance. This was the biggest reason why he made up his mind to pursue a career in music. Music has not been learned, says Sudeep. This is God given.
This is how the journey of music began
Describing his musical journey, Sudeep says, “Tanpur was playing in our ears whenever we woke up. As soon as he regains consciousness, the journey begins. Being born in a musical family, we realized that we too have to do something in the world of music. However, I never pressured myself that I had to pursue a career in music. I started singing before speaking. Music is in my blood. At the age of 9, I sang a pop song with Sunita Rao ji. It was my first song. Also, in a film with Lata Mangeshkar ji for the first time, I sang the part of the child with Hariharan ji. After that I sang for the film Akrosh and then the journey continued.
Such was the experience of working with AR Rahman
Sharing his experience with AR Rahman, Sudeep said, “It was a great experience, an experience that cannot be described in words. When I went to the song ‘Benjara’ for Sridevi ji’s film Mom with Rahman ji in 2017. In it we sang classical tappa which was originally sung by my grandfather. I was also nominated for the Radio Mirchi Award for this. Rahman ji wanted me to sing something out of the ordinary instead of doing ordinary songs, he said so that you have a different identity in the industry. This is the first time I got the opportunity to work with Rahman sir. After that I sang Alap for Mimir Rahman sir. Now being a part of a filmmaker like Mani Ratnam on PS1 is a big deal for me.
Memorable moments with AR Rahman
When I did the song Benjara with Rahman ji for the film ‘Mom’, we went to Rahman ji’s studio in Mumbai. At that time there was no one else in the studio except me and Rehman sir. Neither was an engineer. He was in the monitor room and the dubbing room. The work I did with him during that time has been a memorable moment for me. I will hardly ever forget the occasion when I learned so much from him. There too he appreciated my work which is a big deal for me.
