As we are starting to talk about his journey so here we go, Deepak Agrawal, born on 16th November 1989 at Firozabad. Deepak inherited the flair of creativity from his father who used to write Shayaris and poems. Deepak says, "I used to go for Kavisamelan and public events with my father, there's atmosphere always mesmerized me, I always felt like this is the thing what I need to be peaceful".

His father noticed his love towards music he took him to the music classes at Firozabad. But here in Bollywood Deepak isn't having any godfather and still managed to stay on his mettle. During his journey, he worked with Sonu Nigam, Dev Negi, Mamta Sharma, KK, Kunal Ganjawala, Sahid Mallya, Nakash Aziz, Javed Ali, Palak Machhar, Sunidhi Chauhan. Deepak uses symphonic style strings and piano orchestration for his songs.

 

Deepak's first break came as a lyricist in 2013 with the film “Zindagi 50/50”, the music of which was composed by Vivek Kar & the song was sung by Bappi Lahiri.

He started as a composer in Bollywood cinema for his film Khel To Abb Shuru Hoga. He is all fondness for Kunaal V. Singh, in my first film he put me all at ease, gave me so much freedom and never forced me to change my tunes. The 28-years-old who has composed music for Jeena Isi Ka Naam Hai title song is glad to have, made his way into music director at the film industry.

"Many films, I worked in didn't do well and my songs were not heard but that space allowed me to understand and recognize what went wrong and what should be changed or corrected," adds Deepak.

In 2016, Deepak made his debut as a music composer with “Khel To Ab Shuru Hoga” and has since then composed music for films like “Ek Kahani Julie Ki”(2016), “Jeena Isi Ka Naam Hai”(2017),  “Raktdhar”(2017). In 2018, Deepak wrote the lyrics & composed the song “Baari Baari” for the movie “Jaane Kyun De Yaaron”...As a lyricist, he has worked on movies like Zindagi 50 50“(2013), Ooops A Desi”(2013) , “Hum Bade Aashiq Mizaaj”(2016), “Khel To Ab Shuru Hoga”(2016), “Ek Kahani Julie Ki”(2016), “Jeena Isi Ka Naam Hai”(2017), “Raktdhar”(2017)'' Tishnagi''(2018).

Not to start with the beautiful memories let's starts with some sad parts, Deepak is sad about the changes that have come over the industry and the dilution of values. He Made music his way both melodious and fast numbers. He also composed Fannari and Baari-Baari song too.

Although Deepak has a style all his own and each song have his stamp quality. We are wishing to listen more and more from this legend more frequently.
