Tera Kya Hoga Alia actor Aarvika Gupta has always been fond of music. Seeing her interest her father gifted her a harmonium when she was young and Gupta has not just learnt how to play the instrument but would also play the same while singing.
“I am not a trained singer but I used to participate in singing competitions and various functions in my school and college. I won a lot of these competitions too,” she says.
Not many know that Gupta nurtures the hobby of lyric writing. “Whenever I think of a few lines or words, I love writing them down into meaningful and thoughtful lyrics. I started writing for music videos and films too. Two of my Hindi songs have already got recorded and I am going to sing some more songs soon. I have got an opportunity to sing a Telugu song in a Telugu film where I play the lead. It will be out soon. Though I was not confident given the language, my music director encouraged me, gave me confidence. It turned out well,” says Gupta, who has started taking music lessons from a friend who is a music teacher.
Music is peace for Gupta. It feels like meditation to her. “I hope in the coming times I would be able to impress the audience with my words and melodies. I feel it’s an advantage when you are both an actor and a singer. Knowing two different things help you emote and understand certain things better,” she concludes.
