I see myself breaking stereotypes and working as an artist who can act and sing together Vanikki Tyagi.

My mother wanted me to be a singer and I wanted to be an actor. Acting ka keeda tha mujhme, so my parents trained me in classical singing as well as classical dancing from Gandharv Mahavidyalay Delhi. The joy that came with it made me discover my passion.

During my theatre workshops I realized how much I enjoyed acting and how it came to me naturally.

She used to love acting since a very young age

I shifted Mumbai and started working as an assistant director along with completed my masters in Journalism.

Gradually I got opportunities to work in ad films, short films and theatre in Mumbai.

I loved performing but never took singing seriously but Net Pix Raw Music believed in me and decided to give this chance to discover the singer in me.

A discussion which started off as a trial for me to record a single song converted into a full-fledged music album called “Din Shagna Da – The Wedding Playlist with 6 songs”.  Din Shagna Da has already gathered more than one million views, with extremely encouraging feedback

Being a single child, when I told my parents that I wanted to stay back in Mumbai after college for my projects, they were not surprised and said if this was my passion to follow through with it and don’t look back All that I am, or hope to be, I owe it to my parents!

In a way my parents have inspired my career by showing how important it is to take on passion projects and really run with them if they are good fit.

About my duet with Sonu Nigam, I happened to be at the same studio where Sonu Nigam sir was recording. My music director asked me to sing my song ‘Avo Ni Sayo’ live. He liked my voice and I was fortunate enough to get my second assignment with the legend.

Life is better when I see myself breaking stereotypes and working as an artist who can act and sing together.
