I come from a family of artists. My grandparents, Jalabala Vaidya and Gopal Sharman built and founded a beautiful theatre and arts institution in New Delhi called Akshara. Its a beautiful non profit institute where I was lucky enough to grow up around music, dance and theatre. My nana wrote a play called The Ramayana and my nani performed it solo and its the only Indian play to have been on Broadway (70s). I learned and was performing on stage form a very young age- kathak, plays or singing old hindi songs with my nana. However in school I was as quiet as a mouse. I never participated in anything, I was extremely unconfident and bullied to a certain extent. Its only when I moved to boarding school in Mussoorie at age 14, did I start to find my feet and step out of my comfort zone. A teacher of mine pushed me to sing on stage and that was the first time I did that outside my home- on my own and never looked back.

Ambitions

I have done everything from singing for 2-3 people in a restaurant to perform for thousands when I acted with Disney in Beauty and The Beast. Jingles, ads, plays, musicals. The key is to keep doing things and keep going. Keeping your dream in mind, keep doing new things that will help me learn. I want to sing for films, I want to act in a film! or on Broadway for sure!
