He has composed the music for the film and has sung few songs himself. “Composing for me is not only about making melodies. My music is inspired by life’s realities,” says Gupta, who is also the lyricist for Ehsaan, a Bollywood film. Gupta’s tryst with Bollywood began when he made promotional tracks for the Jimmy Shergill- Kay Kay starrer Strangers, released last year, but he really plunged into films with the five-track album Dil Kabaddi. “The good thing about films is that it lets a musician put together a variety of sounds under one crown,” Gupta said.
He is a former member of Delhi’s fusion band Mrigya. At only 27 years of age, he is the in-house music producer for Tips Films and has already become a name to reckon with. Apart from having produced albums for artists such as Apache Indian and Alisha Chinoy, he sky-rocketed singer Atif Aslam's musical career by creating the runaway hit compilation Doorie. Termed by international media as the "Flying Finger Melodies", Sachin's tryst with music began at the age of 10 when his mother gifted him a guitar. Within six years of being introduced to the instrument, he went on to win the Best Asian Guitar Player.
"I have played a lot of shows world across but I have always wanted to go mainstream with films since there is so much space for experimentation that a composer can do which the masses are also supportive of. All of this broadens the creative parameters of a musician," feels Sachin.
