Featured Indian TV What's Happenin'

Mantra plays tabla in his Narad Muni get-up!

What do you do when you have that unrestrained urge to learn a musical instrument and almost less to no time? You complete your work early and then pursue your passion, simple. That`s exactly what our multi- talented actor, comedian, RJ Mantra did, while shuffling between his passion for playing tabla and shooting for his upcoming TV show Narayan Narayan Chulbule Narad Ki Natkhat Leelayen.

The entertainer managed to take out some time from his busy shooting schedule of his show to learn tabla in Baroda. Mantra quips,

“I love playing percussion instruments. As it comes naturally to me, although I enjoying playing the basic dhol, I always wanted to learn Tabla. So now that i am parked in Baroda for more than half a month, thought of pursuing my passion and found a tabla teacher who comes and train me.”

The actor is so caught up with shooting for the show that, he seldom finds time to change, and practices the instrument in his Narad Muni costume and make-up. Ironically, Narad Muni is known for carrying another musical instrument, a Veena. Coincidence? We think not.
