In the wake of launching Hidden Talent, a digital show by Lahari Music/T-Series to promote budding talent, they have roped in The Tabla Guy aka Nikhil Paralikar as their official digital influencer ambassador. Nikhil has also created a Tabla rendition of Sahore Bahubali which will be distributed worldwide by T-Series, powered by Lahari Music.
Commenting on the same, Mr Chandru Manoharan, Director of Lahari Music said, “We were on a search for talent on social media and one day we saw a Bollywood actress post about Nikhil. We immediately checked all his other music and recognized his amazing talent and energy and that very moment we decided to launch the show with him. His camera presence and speed of playing the Tabla is just superb!”
With Hidden Talent, Lahari Music aims to showcase new and budding talents on YouTube by giving them their platform with over 90 lakh subscribers. They also plan to ensure that the song is featured on all those OTT platforms with whom they have existing distribution deals.
Speaking of the association Nikhil Paralikar said, “For me, it’s a dream come true. There is no bigger film than Baahubali! What better than to be able to create an official classical rendition of the legendary song! I’d really like to thank Pariniti Chopra because of whom they reached out to me as she was the one who reposted my Tabla remix of ‘Teri Mitti’. I hope you guys like my mix of Saaho Re Bahubali.”
Known for his grooving Tabla beats, Nikhil Paralikar, born and raised in Saudi Arabia, was barely six when his mom discovered his fondness for beats. With over 1 million followers and millions of views, his exceptional talent is applauded by many big Bollywood celebs and notaries of the music industry including Armaan Malik, Vishal Dadlani, Badshah, Parineeti Chopra, Raftaar, Ash King, B Praak, Guru Randhawa, Vishal Mishra, Ritviz and many others. He has also been celebrated by international artists like DJ Snake.
