It feels easy to say everything but it was a long process to get here. When I moved to Delhi I didn’t have any means to make contacts in the Industry. So I got in touch with a bunch of people through Facebook for 3 more months and tried to in touch with relevant people.
Eventually I came to Mumbai, I met a few people tried to get some work but it didn’t work out, I had nothing to show for. There was a time when I thought now I have to find some work for money I worked in KFC for a month and a half. But after working there I promised myself whatever money I earn now will be only from music. After some time I got my first job, it wasn’t something I wanted to do, I wanted to be a composer but I had no other option but to take that job.”
When asked about his future projects, Vickey said, “I recently worked on project is a film starring Sanjay Mishra, there are 4 songs in the film and I have worked on all 4 along with film’s background as a composer and I will also be singing a romantic song. I plan to put my heart and soul in all my future projects. This big break that I have received is bigger than a dream come true for me. Definitely it is the biggest turning point in my life; at least I will be recognized by people for my work.”
