Indian Idol 2019 The last 3 years of my life have been extremely humbling. The only person to have hosted 3 music reality shows back to back across 3 different channels. Worked on 3 TV shows on air on the same channel simultaneously. 3 out of 8 shows were the number one show across all channels during their run. More than 350 episodes of content. That’s roughly 3500 hours. If you sleep for 8 hours a day and watch me for the remaining 16, you can watch me non stop for more than 6 months. More than 100 live shows all over India & the world with my band, The A Team. Started touring with AR Rahman sir & sang for a few upcoming Hindi films. Released my first independent single & music video, ‘Lillah’ which has over 10 million views on YouTube so far. Add to that doing my riyaaz & working out almost everyday, rehearsals, meetings etc. My life’s purpose has always been to make music. As much as I love TV, working on so many TV shows has not allowed me time to work on the level of & amount of music that I would want to. Hence, I am taking a sabbatical from Indian Television for 6 months to work on my debut album & music videos. My next 3 TV shows already signed so it’s not a permanent departure. What’s in the pipeline for 2020 / 2021 Adi? * Debut album with The A Team * Debut solo album * Music videos * Feature film songs * 3 TV shows * Live concerts * Debut YouTube show Thank you for the love, joy & memories to everyone (The list is gargantuan) Thank you family, friends & fans. Thank you god. Thank YOU for being a part of this wonderful journey. 25 years in & we are just getting started! Work hard, stay humble, spread love❤️🙏🏼
