Singer-composer Ankit Tewari says that he loves performing in Delhi.

Singer Ankit Tewari, who is known for songs such as Sunn Raha Hai from the film Aashiqui 2 (2013) and Galliyan from the film Ek VIllian (2014), says that he didn’t think he could earn money by singing songs.

The singer-composer says that he feels fortunate to be able to turn his passion into profession. “I enjoy being a part of this profession so much. I never thought that I would be able to make singing a career. It’s great that my passion is also the source of my bread and butter. I enjoy everything about singing,” he says.

Meanwhile, Ankit also performed in Delhi in March 2016 and says that he loves visiting Delhi. “I love performing in Delhi. It’s the heart of the country. Plus, I am fond of the street food in Delhi. That’s my personal interest for visiting the city,” he says.

While he has many friends staying here as well, connecting with all of them when he comes to Delhi is tough. However, Ankit tries to do his best. “It so happens that whenever I come to Delhi, my schedule is always packed. But sometimes, I call my friends to my hotel itself. And of course, I ask them to get the food I love. This way, I get to meet them and enjoy my favourite cuisines too,” says Ankit, who has quite a few projects in his kitty at the moment including singing playback for Sabbir Khan’s upcoming film.
