7 years back a newcomer from Australia came with the biggest hit of 2012 titled “Tera Cheta” but couldn’t become limelight in the media despite being loved by the audience. Later he released Tera Cheta 2, Diary of Lost Love , Chaar Laavan, including his recent release “Hasse Di Wajah”. He is still struggling for his name to include among mainstream artists. Recently has shared his depression story concluded with gratitude to God and the people of Australia.
He says “It happened in 2012 when I released my hit song “Tera Cheta”, and I had no clue that my song has become so popular in Punjab that it is being played on all Cars and Busses. But soon rivals from the industry came to halt my fame knowing the man will do something for sure.
I had to choose one thing at that time, either I could have been a singer or a PR in Australia, I opted for the latter one. I had to work in a small shop in Albury despite being a hit singer. I was so frustrated at that time.
I became most depressed in 2013 when my song was not mentioned in any of the award shows. Some of my friends became my enemy, Advertisements of my songs were stopped and rivals in industry embarrassed me from time to time.
2 Days ago, I got to know the sad news of Sushant Singh’s demise. Then I realized that the choice of PR I opted back in 2012 was the better one, at least I am earning enough to live well. I could have been the same victim as Sushant if I’d have chosen to be a fulltime Singer then.
So I am here to express my gratitude to the Almighty, and above that to the land of Australia which nourished my hard work, returning a beautiful life, and made me capable to serve my mother tongue Punjabi as a Singer-songwriter.”
In his own words:
“Depression” Ik Meri Kahaani Bnaam “Dhanwaad Sache Rab”Da Te “Dhanwaad Australia”
