And then I started making tunes and here I’m sitting in front of you. So, all I am trying to say is, do something that you know you can excel in and make the most of your talent,” shared Anu.Anu Malik is known for his hit tracks like ‘Aaila Re’, ‘Jaanam Samjha Karo’, ‘Ek Garam Chaye ki Pyali’, ‘Gori Gori’, ‘Oonchi Hai Building’, and ‘East or West India is the best’.’Sa Re Ga Ma Pa’ new season airs on Zee TV.–IANSsp/kvd
