- Planet Bollywood Special Correspondant           Let us know what you think about this story

Ankit Tiwari is looking forward to set up a music school dedicated to his grandfather Krishna Narayan Tiwari in his hometown Kanpur.

The new age singer feels that if someone like him who hails from a small town Kanpur can make it big then everyone should get an opportunity to fulfill their dreams. And so Ankit has been planning to open a music school in Kanpur that will educate and nurture kids in the field of music.

Ankit, who rose to fame with Aashiqui 2’s Sun Rah Hai Na Tu is deeply connected to his roots and after a successful world tour through several US cities, he’s back in Mumbai working on new projects.

Ankit says, “My basic training and early beginnings in music has been because of my grandfather. As a young child, I’d accompany him to the local temple for the bhajan sandhya (evening prayers) where he used to play the dholak. Also, I feel Kanpur has many more such talents (like me) just waiting for the right exposure and the right musical agitation. This is the first step. I will need a lot of blessings and support.”
