His business failed and he made up his mind to pursue a singing career and therefore left his hometown Meerut and relocated to Mumbai in search of opportunities. His friend recommended him to the music composer Ram Sampat who was on a hunt for a fresh voice for a jingle. Soon, he got opportunities and he began singing jingles for radio and television commercials. Some of the brand’s commercials to which he lent his voice are Pepsi, Coca-Cola, Honda Motor Cycles, and IPL. To get a break in film, he struggled for long.
