Akhil Sachdeva on advantage of singing for OTT shows

Mumbai: Singer Akhil Sachdeva says he is currently excited about recording songs for the digital medium. Akhil recently came up with the song “Galliyaan” for the web show “Bekaabee”.

“I think among the new musicians and the composers that we have, I was the first one to begin giving big melodies to the OTT platform.

While making music you do not really bother about what platform it is going to be on. Music is made from your soul and that is how I write, compose and sing. I don’t worry about the platform but it is a different platform. So it must be having a different audience, and it is always going to be there, whenever the show is streamed. So, I think with all this going on, OTTs are the safest platform,” Akhil explained the advantage of scoring tunes for the digital platform, while speaking to a correspondent.

However, he badly misses performing on the stage in front of a live audience.

“I’m a stage guy. I started my stage career 11 years ago when I formed a band called Nasha. This band of mine is India’s first Sufi rock band. I’ve been performing before I made my debut in Bollywood, so I’m missing it (performing live). During lockdown, I did it for a private show but I’m really missing it. It’s really a very uncertain time now, but I would love to start as soon as it is possible,” he added.

Akhil is best known for his songs “Humsafar” (“Badrinath Ki Dulhania”) and “Tera ban jaunga” (“Kabir Singh”).
