It was St. Peter’s School, and then his education came to an end with St. Gerard School. His religious views are that he is an atheist and doesn’t trust any organization that brainwashes people’s mind. He is extremely averted to the Catholic Church. This is because the church norms didn’t permit his father to file a divorce against his wife even after she had abandoned him for another guy.

He started developing a profound interest in music when he was 14.
