Bollywood's latest playback singer Hriday Gattani is a discovery of music composer A.R. Rahman. Rahman introduced him to cinema music. If it had not been so, Hriday Gattani would not have become a singer. He was very young just three years old when his association with Rahman had begun. Hence, he will naturally turn euphoric while recounting his experience of working with the Oscar-winning music director. He was studying in Rahman's school of music in Chennai. Rahman’s school had changed his life. It is Rahman School’s creativity that introduced him to this wonderful music world, and that is why he can compose or sing or even write lyrics too. 

This singer also worked in Rahman’s studio. His father Deepak Gattani has been his official concert manager for over 18 years now. Even he used to participate in the musical tour of Rahman in abroad. This gave him more scope to understand the music so well that he grew up to a music composer and singer too. There was an idea that singers belonged to classical training only, but Rahman brought out many singers from his school, and Hriday Gattani is one among them. He was born on January 20, 1991, at Mumbai. His voice that was recorded for Maloom song from ‘ Lekar Hum Deewana Dil’ had other singers like Jonita Gandhi and Nakash Aziz. His another song from the same film ’ Lekar Hum Diwana Dil’ was a solo number by Gattani as ‘Tu Shining’, which had exposed his voice quality. Both these songs had given him ample chance to bring out his creativity for the lyrics which was penned by Amitabh Bhattacharya. The singer in no doubt a versatile singer who will get ample offers from A..R. Rahman and other music directors in future.
