THE CO-LEAD SINGER OF JOSHÂ
You’ve recently worked with Deepa Mehta and taken a serious shot at acting. Tell us about your latest big-screen roles:
Acting has always been a passion of mine. I just didn’t know how much I liked it until I really tried it. I’ve dedicated a lot of time in learning the craft. There’s a lot more learning to do. I’ve shot two features in 2014. The first is with world-renowned director Deepa Mehta, in her latest film “Beeba Boys.” It was a small role, but I learned a lot from her.Â The second film is called “The Black Prince, directed by Kavi Raz.”Â He’s an incredibly committed and talented film maker whose drive simply amazes me! The film is a period biopic about the son of Maharaja Ranjit Singh, Maharaja Duleep Singh. I play the role of Arur Singh, who was the right-hand man of the Maharaja.
You’ll shortly be releasing a cookbook featuring South Asian cuisine, with an emphasis on easy recipes for men. Any particular personal experiences that led to you focusing on cooking for men?
Lets face it, the majority of guys don’t cook. Its a sad fact. After careful deliberation, I’ve come to the realization that there are a number of things that support the absent male in the kitchen. The book is designed to make guys feel comfortable in the kitchen. Cooking is not as scary or difficult as it may seem. Sometimes, a guy needs to hear it in his own language: guy talk!

Tell us about your musical journey from the tabla at gurdwaras at age 6 to pioneering your own style of contemporary South Asian music.
Like any living entity, one’s journey is forever evolving. Let’s just say the journey has been amazing. When you love what you do, you usually take the road less traveled. Thats the road I’ve always been on, and its the road I chose. JoSH’s experiences, inspirations, and backgrounds have brought us to the style of music we have. Like any living entity, it’s always evolving.
