 I miss each other and everything. Still, everything is the same as before, there is no need to turn back pages. Even today everybody lives together. We enjoyed it together.

How did your conscious change after coming to a rising star?

 Now I go to college just 4 days a week, and now I am in college, so there is not much tension.

You scored 94% in the 10th and 84% in 12th. How did you manage singing with studies?

I had full focus on my studies as I didn't join rising stars in 10 standards, after participating in rising stars my schedule change for example I had to give auditions in the morning and much more. So Yes management is definitely needed, and without hard work, nothing could be achieved.

I used to go to school, came back from school, did homework, Practice, used to play, and then slept.
