Otherwise, as a composer, his tunes are always catchy and can manage to lift our spirits at every situation. As a young music director, he sets an example of being an unconventional composer of recent times. 

Hitesh wanted to be an architect, but music was his passion. He loved playing guitar and he used to assist his father in recording and made it a full-time profession.
