My mother backed me unconditionally: Tulsi Kumar

MUMBAI: Tulsi Kumar made waves with tracks like 'Tum Jo Aye' from Once Upon a Time in Mumbai, 'Hum Mar Jayenge' and 'Piya Aaye Na' from Aashiqui 2, and now her latest track 'Mujhe Ishq Se' from Yaariyan is a growing favourite among the romantics. Her music talent is no wonder, considering she began her musical journey at the tender age of six. All thanks to her father, Gulshan Kumar.

Of her father's encouragement to pursue music she says, "It was he who heard me sing on television and since he has the eye for spotting potential talent, I underwent a formal training under Suresh Wadkar's Academy". Despite her success, Kumar prefers to stay grounded when it comes to her achievements. "I want my work to speak rather than shouting about my work," says the singer to's Dhairya Ingle.

Kumar plans to perform more at concerts as this is the way to connect with the audience. “I love the energy and the appreciation I get from the audience and it makes want to better yourself.” Talking about the role of her mother in her life the singer says, "After my dad left us, we shifted to Delhi she made sure that I could pursue my father's dream and backed me unconditionally."

Kumar has sung for a couple of Bollywod projects. One of them is Sonali Cable and Ankit Tiwari composed the track. The other project is Kuku Mathur Ki Jhand Hogaye, where the singer has teamed up with Palash Sen. Apart from singing for Bollywood she has also sung in Bengali, Tamil and Telegu.

Kumar is a complete fitness freak. Her day starts with a riyaaz of four days. Some day she hopes to work with the Czar of the music industry, AR Rahman and aims to make it to the top in the next five years.
