A 24-year-old whiz kid from Indore has been into the art of “Visual Imagery” since 2012, and there is no looking back. His visual edits on music videos and remixes are recognized across India and the globe. With close to 100k followers on YouTube, his popularity seems not to pause at all, with almost 300 video edits of his on the offering. Not just on YouTube, but he is equally famous in real life, where he performs for both corporate and social events. He has served as a VJ aside from famous singers and DJs. 

Asked about his inspiration, he says, “In 2012 there weren’t many in the industry playing around with graphics of remix songs, so I just got a 2nd hand laptop taking a loan from my father who has been my most prominent support pillar, downloaded an essential software and started cutting, chopping and editing videos to give it the feel I wanted. After few failures initially, I saw some videos of Vitaly Verlov, a famous VFX artist. He inspired me to give it one more try, and my journey towards proper VFX art started. The trip wasn’t easy, but it was fun. The journey is what keeps inspiring me to date. “

He has worked for every music label in India, namely T Series, Sony Music, Zee Music, Saregama, etc., and he is busy throughout the year with his edits.

“Many few people realize the importance of a VFX or a VJ. They don’t learn that a song can be made into a visual experience only if a good video is involved. So I’m always looking for new ways to make a piece enjoyable, and the viewers get a wholly unique experience whenever they are watching the song. It seems simple, but it’s a very tedious and a time taking effort. “he replies when asked about how important his job is.

Now he has a state-of-the-art studio in Indore and processes an average of 2-3 music videos a day. He has worked on videos for Arijit Singh, Badshah, Mika Singh, B Praak, Jubin Nautiyal, Dharia, Sukhbir, Ayushmann Khurana in his kitty kitty, Meet Bros, Ammy Virk, Pritam, Guru Randhawa, Diljit Dosanjh, Vishal Sekhar, Jassie Gill, etc.

He is also a regular editor for remix videos of many celebrity DJs including, DJ Shadow, DJ Harshit Shah, DJ Yogi, DJ Shilpi Sharma, DJ Syrah.DJ Goddess, DJ Smita, etc.

He has also accompanied many DJs for their live events to give the crowd an unseen experience of Audiovisuals on gigantic LED screens.

He is also into producing music and recently released two original tracks globally called “Indiscriminate” and “Galaxy,” which are currently streaming on all music platforms worldwide. He even conceptualized the VFX for the videos of the same track and has been getting rave reviews for the same. Both the tracks are electronic tracks that have a hint of Indian folk instrumentations in them. Meanwhile, he is already working on a third original electronic track, and he says, “It’s going to best my biggest release ever.”

He is also planning to open a VFX/Editing studio dedicated to teaching the art to people who wants to make a career out of this profession. He wants to start this from his home town Indore, before expanding it to Mumbai and Delhi. 

“Visual Art cultivates innovation, thinking and collaboration” he ends by saying this.
