"I am a hard-core musician," claims Ishq Bector who had come a long way from the song 'Shaadi Jo Kiya Tune To Ab Nakhre Bhi Utha' in Barsaat to the title track of Ugly Aur Pagli. Certified in Chinese Medicine with forte in Acupuncture, Ishq Bector is an ex-student of Roshan Taneja film studio in Mumbai. "As a gift for graduating, my father enrolled me into Roshan Tuneja's film studio to cultivate my acting skills which have also been very beneficial for my music videos. So, I mainly did it for music but I feel, it will help me in all sorts of facets."
Talking about his first break in Bollywood, he informs, "I would give credit to Salim of Salim-Suleman. He saw me singing in a club and immediately signed me and recommended to Sunil Darshan for Barsaat where not only did I sing but even shared screen space with Bipasha and Bobby."
And then there was no looking back for Ishq, he has penned songs for Dhoom and rap portions for the title track of Race and 'Baby Doll' in Pyaar Ke Side Effects. And off late, has signed a 3 songs deal with Anu Malik, with 'Aankhan Wich Aankhan Nu Rehna De' in Ugly Aur Pagli, the first one sung with Anushka. He further says, "I have not written songs for Ugly Aur Pagli but before lending my voice I made certain changes which I feel were necessary in the song."
Ishq has also sung the title track of Maan Gaye Mughal-E-Azam and 'Aankhen Na Dikha Nanga Kardenge Yahan' in Sagar Ballary's Kaccha Limboo which is picturized on kids in the school assembly. And last but not the least a song titled 'Kala Jaadu' in Faroukh Kabir's Allah Ke Banday.
Ishq Bector's latest music album 'Aye Hip Hopper' and 'Dakku Daddy' are already popular among youngsters.
