Arjun Kanungo is one of the leading singer/songwriters in the country right now. From putting together catchy party numbers like Baaki Baatein Peene Baad to soft beats like Tu Na Mera, Arjun knows how to make an Indian wedding lit. He also has a promising acting career ahead of him with a couple of web series and films under his belt.

So we caught up with him to understand what his journey has been like so far. 

When did you realize that you wanted a career in music?

I started my music journey about 12 years ago. I was a national-level pistol shooter, and after junior college, I was going to do architecture but music happened to me. So, I founded my music business by opening Promethean studio. I had to learn sound engineering to be better equipped. In 2013-14, I took a short break from music and took an acting course. I came back after that and started getting a lot of offers. 

What's the story behind calling your studio 'Promethean Audio'?

I have always been obsessed with Greek mythology. The story of Prometheus giving humankind the gift of fire. Besides, 'Promethean' also means new and pathbreaking which resonates with me.

We've learned that you're environmentally conscious, so what's your take on sustainable living?

I keep telling people that the amount of global warming caused by us is alarming. Personally, I try to live sustainably, my house is solar-powered and I carpool to places.

We've also learned that you love collaborating with artists, what is the process like?

I think it's about scouting for artists that you respect and really want to work with and then finding a middle ground with them while collaborating. It's a very organic process and it's very exciting for me.  

You're an actor, singer, composer and also an entrepreneur, is it hard juggling them all? How do you transition from one to another?

Not really, I think I manage my time really well. But it's also about building a good team and delegating responsibility at the end of the day. 

What is your personal style like?

I think it would be urban, hip hop, loose jackets and t-shirts, and ugly sneakers.

Who is the one style icon you always look up to?

I really like Rami Malek and Madonna's sense of style.

What do you like wearing on dates?

Usually, I don't put too much effort for the first date. So, I layer my outfit but tend to keep things simple. 

What is the one fashion staple in your closet that you can't do without?

My underwear.

What is that one fashion trend that you just don't understand or relate to?

I think bell-bottom pants because they sweep the floor when you walk. I don't understand why anyone thought they were cool.

Minimalism vs. Maximalism?

It depends on the occasion really. If it's a party or one of my concerts, then I go all-out, honestly. 

Which is the best fashion advice you have received till date?

Someone once told me that being comfortable in your skin while styling an outfit will always work for you.
