Completing his LLB, he opted to become a lawyer.


Due to his classical singing background and the musical influence of his family members, he began singing in an orchestra in Bangalore and other groups as a hobby.

After working with him for 6 years, Hamsalekha began guiding Seelin to become a successful playback singer. After great success in singing, he started to show an interest in music directing and began composing songs for the Kannada music industry.

Music Direction

Seelin was then signed on to compose the soundtrack for the Kannada movie Gooli.
