The 24-year-old singer, who kicked off his career at an early age, has emerged as one of the most popular male voices from the current crop of singers in Indian music space. Darshan Raval started his career with YouTube, and from there began a journey that had no looking back.

The latest songs by Darshan Rawal – Chogada and Kamariya – are weaving magic at charts. Recently, we met the talented singer at the song launch of Kamariya in Mumbai and chatted for a while. In this brief interaction with us, the young sensation shared some interesting details about his career, singing for Salman Khan’s Loveratri, upcoming projects and much more. Here’s what Darshan Raval revealed.



On Starting His Musical Career At An Early Age:

“I am honoured. I am glad that I got a lot of opportunities at a pretty young age, but I still feel that I started very late. I wanted to do a lot of things. Since my childhood, I wanted to start early, so that I could do a whole lot of things in my life. But I am thankful to God, thankful to my fans and family because it is just because of them that I have got so much of success and love.”



On Meeting Salman Khan For The Loveratri Song:

“Technically, I have not met him as yet because most of my work is limited to music studios. We were told to create a tune, compose it in a certain manner and all of that. So, yeah, I have not met him. I just met Aayush. I also met Arpita, but not him.”



On How Chogada Song From Loveratri Happened:


“I got a call from DJ Chetas, the composer of the song along with Lijo. I was chilling at my home as I had just returned from a concert. Chetas called me up and said, ‘Come to the studio. There is a song which needs to be recorded.’ So, I went to the studio and recorded the song. It was after the recording that I came to know that it would feature in a Salman Khan film. I got super excited. That’s how it all happened. The song was made in 30 minutes. After that, Salman bhai heard it and loved it.”



On His Latest Song Kamariya From The Movie Mitron:

“On Mitron song, we worked really hard. We wanted to get the exact feel and exact mood of the original song. Again, it is composed by Chetas and Lijo. It’s written by Kumaar paji. They all met and jammed together. Then I was called. So that’s how the Kamariya song was made.”



On Youtube Emerging As A Platform For Budding Talent:

“I started my career with YouTube and I am here right now. So, I think YouTube has a lot of impact on today’s generation, because everybody is on phones these days. They are in constant need of entertainment and YouTube provides it. So, I think for any upcoming talent, YouTube is the best platform for them.”



On Upcoming Projects:

“A lot of things are coming up. I am soon coming up with more Bollywood songs. Plus, I am also doing a single. I am about to commence work on that. It will be with Sony Music. It’s going to come this month only.”
