Ankit Tiwari is one of the best male lead playback singers these days. While most playback singers have some sort of backing, Ankit’s entry into the film industry was a fluke. He met Pradeep Sarkar who gave Ankit his first break which was to work on Jingles. While doing this Ankit was offered to compose the music for Do Dooni Chaar (2010) and Saheb, Biwi Aur Gangster (2011). This is where his career took off and today Ankit is one of the biggest singers we have.
Ankit was born and raised in Kanpur where he finished his education. He was always interested in music which is why he was adamant on learning the piano. Ankit spent hours rehearsing and practicing before he finally decided to give it his best. He came to Mumbai in 2007 and the rest as they say, is history. Ankit managed to sing some amazing songs including the very popular “Sunn Raha Hai”, which is also composed by him. He won the Best Male Playback Singer Award for the song Galliyan from the movie ‘Ek Villain’.
Ankit is currently working on a number of projects for singing and he will also be seen coaching the contestants of The Voice India Kids this season.
