One to one with Mohit..
“Boondein” by Silk Route is one of my all time favourite music albums and I got quite excited when I got to know of the Photo shoot with Mohit Chauhan,lead singer of the band. It was year 2006 and he had not shifted his base to Mumbai,he was putting up in Greater Kailash. The time was fixed for 3 pm and I was really running late due to a massive traffic jam. I managed to reach at around 4.30 pm,quite late by any standards. He seemed a bit annoyed,he had to leave for another appointment.I didn’t have much time to take his photographs,quickly set up the lights and started talking to him about “Boondein”. He picked up his guitar and started humming a song from the album. What else could I wish for,here was my favourite singer singing my favourite song and in the audience just me and my assistant..a purely soulful unforgettable experience.
