Although this is his first professional visit to the city, the artist shares an old connection with Assam, which includes many of his co-workers. Ankit had earlier worked with Dhrubajyoti Phukan, for the music of 'Aashiqui 2', and many other music artists for various works from time to time, and terms it 'a beautiful state.'
Ankit started his musical career as the Production Head of a Radio Station, where from he learnt to produce music of his own. He also said that his tenure with the radio station was the one when he learnt about music mixing.
Speaking about his emotional connection with the two hits of his life, he said, "Both the songs 'Sunn Raha Hai Na Tu' and 'Teri Gailyan' play important roles in his life. But ‘Sunn Rahai Hai Na Tu’ is closer to my heart. People might not know my face, but that person will always know Ankit Tiwari for this particular song. And this was the first hit of my life. First is always first, you see."
The artist has recently made his featuring debut in his non-film production 'Badtameez' where he has worked as a composer, singer, and an actor, along with Sonal Chauhan.
Ankit Tiwari plans to release his next non film production in December itself, and he also has some big music work for movies lined up for the next year.
