Nikhita, who is known for tracks like 'Qaafirana', 'Ullu Ka Pattha', and 'Jugnu', shared: "Papa sang the cult song 'Kolkata' by Anupam Roy and Shreya Ghoshal with me on stage. He is a maxillofacial prosthodontist. He loves music and is a natural."

"He used to sing Kishore Kumar songs in his college days, and all my love for music comes from him. He still sings for recreation and performs on occasion (Kolkata has many musical events), and his love for music is definitely a huge part of my journey as a musician," added Nikhita, who hails from Kolkata.

The 32-year-old is also a former student of A.R. Rahman's K. M. College of Music and Technology. Her first association with Rahman was during an Indo-German exchange, where she was part of a choir that performed with the German orchestra.
