Karan Oberoi, who founded the popular band, Band of Boys in 2002, reveals that like any other band, there were moments when the members had difference of opinion. However, he ensured that none of these fights reached the public space.

“There were a lot of agreements and disagreements within the band members, especially when we created music together. Fortunately, this never happened on the stage. Most of the differences, we either [used to] sort out among ourselves or agree to disagree, and then a popular vote decided the way forward,” says Karan, who along with other band members Chin2 Bhosle, Sherrin Varghese and Sudhanshu Pandey gave hit tracks such as Gori, Teri Neend and Main Chal Diya.

Though the members stopped creating music as a band in 2014, Karan says that through the band, he wanted to start a new trend. “The idea of creating something that didn’t exist in the country drove me to initiate the process of forming a band at that time. I always felt that we lacked good performers in India, who were great in terms of singing, dancing, looks and personality. It’s not that we didn’t have the talent; I just felt that nobody had ventured in that direction,” says Karan.

As the singer gears up for the release his new independent album titled Choti Si Baat, he says he’s grateful to his fans for giving him the confidence to continue to make music.

“I feel blessed because of the love that I have got from my fans. The response has been amazing when it comes to outpouring of affection, which I have got over the years, he adds.
