I have provided music to a couple of Bollywood movies. A fair number of 150 and more movies are there where I have given music. As time changes, so do the things change and the way people do things changes. Bollywood has also changed in a drastic way. At present, Bollywood is running in a fair condition and the movies made are doing a good amount of business in the market."

My son, Sohail Sen has recently given music in a Bollywood movie that goes by the name Happy Bhaag Jayegi. I have always been closely attached to the Jaipur city. The amount of peace that I experience on coming down to the city can be compared to nothing.

This is just the beginning of a good journey, wait to see what the future holds in itself."

In these studios, we often end up recording music. Traffic is starting to build up in this area of the city now. Traffic congestion needs to be resolved. Speaking about delivering a performance on stage, the singer expressed that until and unless a singer or an actor enjoys performing himself and on his own, the audience will not be able to enjoy his performance. To become a singer, there are many in the mad race. I have given my voice as music in Bollywood movies like Happy New Year and Talaash.

Apart from these, I have given music and my voice for various music albums, Rajasthani movies etc. I have also staged various music shows at the national level. Apart from staging music shows at the national level, I have also had international stage shows."

Being from Jaisalmer, I have reached and survived in the city of Mumbai. All this has been only possible because of the immense love that I have received from the people of the nation. Having been on the show Indian Idol and having received the love and support of the audience and also the people of the country, I have merely being famous because of all this. Had I not received this love and support, I would not have been able to achieve such great success."

"Folk music is appreciated by people since quite long now. I have made a name and have gained fame due to folk music only. Folk music is the identity of the state of Rajasthan. This genre of music has also received acceptance in Bollywood. I feel proud about this. The first break that I received was for the show Emotional Atyachar and the credit for that goes to Bappi Lahiri. After this in the year 2010, I gained fame by the song ‘Tharki Chokro’ in the movie P.K.
