Aditya Narayan Talks About Privilege & The Pressure Of Being Udit Narayan’s Son


Singer Aditya Narayan is currently on a break from social media as he is prepping for his wedding with fiancee Shweta Agarwal in December. In an earlier interview, he had talked about how the pandemic had affected his finances and now he has shared his two cents on the nepotism debate in the industry.

Hindustan Times quoted him saying, “First let me address those who think I’m privileged and would love to have the life I have, I pray with all my heart ki aagle janam mein woh koi bade insaan ka beta bane. When you want to become a cricketer, actor, engineer, doctor, and one of your parents have been a master in the field, you’d know how difficult it becomes for their children.”

“There have been times when I wish I wasn’t the son of Udit Narayan and then people would’ve taken me more seriously, and I would’ve been able to prove my point. I’ve also thought if my father wasn’t one of the most accomplished musicians in the country, there would’ve been things left for me to achieve. And above everything else, comes the pressure of expectations and comparisons.”

He further added that after the initial break, it is talent and profit that form the basis of success in the industry,


“If you think about the popular singers, actors, lyricists, directors, most of them don’t have a background in the industry. I agree it’s easier for us to get the first opportunity, but this industry is commerce-driven. Only people who can churn profit will be employed. Talent is, of course, an essential criteria but unless your films or songs make profit, you’re nothing. TV shows that I’ve been hosting have been doing well. I might be a good host but what actually is working in my favour is my shows getting good TRPs and sponsorship. Success has nothing to do with you being an insider or an outsider.”
