Meet Yashraj Mukhate, The Man Behind The Viral 'Rasode Mein Kaun Tha' Remix
Last year, Yashraj Mukhate became an overnight Internet sensation when he added a musical spin to a dialogue from the the popular TV show Saath Nibhaana Saathiya and his mash-up went crazy viral on social media. Mr Mukhate has come a long way since then, and he recently sat down for an interview with Humans of Bombay to talk about his journey, what led to his first viral composition and more.
Yashraj Mukhate was three when he fell in love with music, thanks to a keyboard his "Baba" gifted him. "Even then, I knew I wanted to be a musician," he says.
His parents were supportive, but they wanted him to get a college degree before pursuing his passion for music, and so he would attend engineering college in the mornings and make music in the evenings.
"Somehow, I completed my engineering and after that, I channelled all my energy towards music. I didn't have proper equipment, so I'd create music using dal dabbas or chocolate wrappers. I'd make song covers and post them online," says Mr Mukhate.
