A-Players Don’t Just Dream But They Achieve.

As we see more and more examples of Andy Warhole’s excerpt of “15 minutes of getting fame”, we know one thing for sure and that is that success and fame does not come to those who only believe in showing off and sitting idle without putting in any real work. Aryaan Arora is one such person who has paved his way to success. In fact, his recent cover of Armaan Malik’s English debut single “Control” drew attention of none other than Armaan himself, who couldn’t resist from sharing Aryaan’s video with a very heart-warming message –

“Always wanted young Indian musicians like me to pick up the guitar & do their own thing. Check out this cover of #Control by @_aryaanarora! You have a really nice vibe brother, keep it going”

And although he is receiving a lot of recognition for his musical skills, he is also an actor, filmmaker, producer, dancer, and multi-instrumentalist.

The Foundation For Success That A Family Provides.

Aryaan’s mother and grandmother, Aarti Arora and Shanta Bahl, respectively, have been a big part of his life and career- shaping him as an artist and constantly making sure he stays grounded and sticks to the roots and values they brought him up with. He said: “There is only one reason for the man that I am today and that is because of my two mothers, my mom and nani. They always made sure that I stayed true to myself as a compassionate human being. They were the ones who supported me for everything and always gave me unconditional love for which I know I don’t deserve even a fraction of. When everyone left, they stood by me. When everyone said no, they said yes. I am nothing without them. I owe everything to them.”
