It was during the later part of those formative years, Bobo made up his mind about becoming a music composer because he felt that would give him the maximum release of expression towards his art & he knew he had to take his art to places. Bobo opted for finding a bigger canvas and he decided to shift base to Mumbai in the year 2001.

After going through an intense but supremely enriching phase of extreme struggle to get going and survive in one of the most competitive cities in the world as far as music and media are concerned. Bobo finally managed to establish himself as one of the premier music composer & record producer for the thriving advertising industry.
