A glimpse into Purva Mantri’s journey

Purva Mantri, the young, cheerful and talented girl who became a household name ever since she participated in Indian Idol was in the city on a two-day visit. As we caught up with Purva to know more about her career and life, we got to know the multi-talented side to this 25-year-old.

Purva started singing at the age of six, and by the time she was in class XI she was sure about making a career out of it. “I come from a family where singing runs in the blood and so my parents always supported me,” says Purva. “It all began as a hobby. I used to learn classical music and play the tabla; my mother is my guru,” she adds.

Purva was also awarded as the ‘Singer performer of the year 2015’ by IBM, which, she feels, is so far one of the best achievements. Purva says, “I am at my best when I am on the stage. I perform because I am passionate.” The youngster also recalls the day when her father who isn’t very generous with complements said, “Purva, you were meditating on the stage and that’s how it should be.”

Other than singing, Purva Mantri enjoys cooking, sketching and playing badminton, besides being a fitness freak. “In short, I love doing everything that is creative,” she says laughing out loud. When asked how she manages her personal life and profession, she says, “It’s not easy, neither is it difficult. I make sure that I am grounded and know my roots.”

This isn’t her first time in Hyderabad, says the singer and adds that she has lost track of the number of times she visited Hyderabad. “What I love about the city is the street food and the people here because they have showed so much support for my music as well.”

On her future endeavours’ front, Purva is excited about her Bollywood music project where two of her songs will be released in December or January.
