He has also received classical music training from Vinod Kumar Dwivedi, where he used to practice for around 12 hours a day.
His first job was as a ‘production head’ at a radio station ‘Radio Chaska’ in Gwalior.
In 2008, he moved to Mumbai with his brother, and they used to stay with their uncle, Anuj Kumar Trivedi, a Virar-based cameraman.
He used to compose jingles and background music for TV shows before getting a break as a music composer in ‘Do Dooni Chaar’ (2010).
He wanted to become a music composer and never thought of singing professionally. It was Tigmanshu Dhulia who saw a great singer in him and suggested him to sing professionally.
He almost lost hopes of becoming a singer while he was struggling in Mumbai; as he was rejected by many music-directors and was frequently cheated by not getting credit for his work.
The tables turned for him when Mahesh Bhatt heard him singing, and later, gave him an opportunity to sing in ‘Aashiqui 2’ (2013), where he sang and composed the superhit song “Sunn Raha Hai.”
Some of his chartbuster songs are ‘Tu Hai Ki Nahi’ from Roy (2015), ‘Dil Cheez Tujhe Dedi’ from Airlift (2016), and ‘Tere Liye’ from Sanam Re (2016).
He has worked as a music director and lent his voice for various Bollywood films including PK (2014), Khamoshiyan (2015), Tum Bin 2 (2016), and Sadak 2 (2020).

It was his grandmother, who chose a life partner for him. In 2017, when his grandmother was travelling from Kanpur to Delhi via train, she met Pallavi Shukla, and during the conversation with her, she found that she would make an ideal match for his grandson.
He has featured in the music videos like Badtameez (2016), Mehbooba (2018), and Tere Do Naina (2019).
