‘Sun Raha Hai Na Tu’ is a song that was on every Indian youngster’s lips in 2013 and it was through this that singer Ankit Tiwari made a place in everyone’s hearts. Hailing from a middle-class family in Kanpur, Ankit has raised a big fan base since his debut.

With his soulful voice and unique sense of music, the music-maker started his career with jingle compositions. There on, he was offered to compose music for the film Do Dooni Chaar (2010) and Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster (2011), which also turned out to be his singing debut. Since then, the small town boy who had set out with big dreams in his eyes has never looked back.

Inspiring Journey in every sense

Ankit's journey is inspiring in every sense, and his story cannot be completed without a few special mentions. Ankit Tiwari was born into a family of musicians. The family owned a music troupe called Raju Suman and Party. His mother’s devotional singing brought him close to music. His interest and dedication to music convinced his parents that their son would take up a musical career.

“My success is a result of the constant support that I have received from my family. My guru Vinod Kumar Dwivedi helped me realize my dream one step at a time. It was his guidance that gave me direction,” says the popular Bollywood singer and composer.

Foundation of Brotherhood Entertainment

A special mention in the life of Ankit Tiwari, brother Ankur (Tiwari) has always been a constant support. Taking care of all the management, Ankur made sure his brother could focus entirely on his singing career. This also led to the foundation of Brotherhood Entertainment, a celebrity management company, in 2013.

From his early days in the Mayanagri, singer Ankit Tiwari has been a great influence on the music industry. His fresh approach and out-of-the-box ideas have given him his deserved space. “Rendering playback for multiple on-screen actors has given me immense satisfaction, and I am forever indebted to the people who believed in my talent. It is always humbling to see people love and praise your work,” said the composer.


Apart from the list of multiple Bollywood hits, Ankit’s music has also earned him the reputation of a music director. The long list of movies, including Aashiqui 2 (2013), Singham Returns(2014), Airlift (2016), Rustom (2016), Rocky Handsome (2016), Baaghi (2016), Tum Bin II (2016), Beiimaan Love (2016), Baadshaho (2017) and more are the proof of love his fans and followers have showered upon him. The year 2018 has also given the fans something to cherish with the music of the film Aiyaary, which also has been composed by Ankit.
