Dhruv is inspired by A.R.Rahman and he says that “He is one of the main reasons I wanted to write music. His music and writing truly moves and inspires me. Recording a cover of ’Yeh Jo Des’ and then performing with him at Symphony Hall was a surreal experience. He has amazing energy and it’s incredible to see the childlike fascination he has with music technology.”
Ask what would be his ideal composing gig and he says, “Writing the score to a big sci-fi movie.” He adds he would love to explore India-based project as well. “But I am ’playing it by ear’ currently – pun intended! ” he concludes.
