Exclusive! Bekhayali fame Sachet Tandon: I had a lot of pressure from my parents to get married

Composer and lyricist duo, Sachet-Parampara (Sachet Tandon and Parampara Thakur), who are known for songs like Bekhayali and Mere Sohneya (Kabir Singh) and Dilbara (Pati Patni Aur Woh) surprised everyone by tying the knot on Nov 27. The two who have known each other since five years managed to keep their relationship hush-hush, until the news of their wedding came out surprising their fans.

Now, in their first interaction post their wedding, Sachet and Parampara spills it all. “Well frankly, we don’t know when it all started between us. We both are workaholics. We have been working on music in collaboration since so many years. Music is like our baby, and we were into it so passionately ki kaam karte karte usme sab kuch ho gaya (laughs!),” says Parampara. Sachet echoes saying, “I also had a lot of pressure from my parents. They wanted me to get married soon. I think, at the back of their mind, our families were thinking ki yeh log kitna bhi chhupaye, yeh shaadi toh ek doosre ke saath hi karenge.”

Sachet and Parampara first met on the sets of reality show The Voice India as contestants. Post the show, the two went back to their hometowns. “Sachet hails from Lucknow, but he has spent time in Mumbai. I was completely new to Mumbai when I came for the show. Post the reality show, as a friend he insisted that I come to Mumbai and look for work. Once back we started working together and got along really well,” recollects Parampara.

The two began their journey as a team in Bollywood in 2016 and have composed music for several films, including Toilet: Ek Prem Katha (2017), Bhoomi (2017), Yamla Pagla Deewana Phir Se (2018), Batti Gul Meter Chalu (2018), Pal Pal Dil Ke Paas (2019) and Kabir Singh (2019), among others.
