Vayu was born in Madhya Pradesh and spent his childhood years in small towns like Singrauli and Rewa. His mother used to affectionately call him Vayu, and the nickname stuck. His parents moved to Bhopal after he finished his schooling. He has an elder brother as well.
Vayu moved to Indore to study Graphic Designing and later shifted to Pune to pursue Masters in Mass Communication from Symbiosis Institute of Mass Communication (SIMC).
Vayu moved to Mumbai in 2009 and worked in advertising by writing for various mediums like print and TV. He finally got his first lyricist break by Ram Gopal Verma in the 2010 movie, Rann. With Oopar Oopar Renn De (Bro Anthem) in 2014 and Banno from Tanu Weds Manu Returns in 2015, he established his credentials as a quirky and hit lyricist, and found a name in the industry. Initially, Vayu started out in Bollywood with his friend Tanishk Bagchi, but the two have now gone separate solo ways, occasionally collaborating on a song or two.
Style of Work
Vayu’s style of work is to channelize his everyday emotions and experiences into the songs he creates – “I want to be subtle. Songs should speak for themselves. That’s my aim and mission when I write, I always want to write real stuff”.
Vayu has written and co-composed Sanedo from Mitron, 2018 (starring Jackky Bhagnani and Kritika Kamra). He has written the lyrics for Chad Gayi Hai and Monobina from the Akshay Kumar movie, Gold.
He has also written the lyrics for 3 songs (Milegi Milegi, Kamariya, Nazar Na Lag Jaaye) in the latest hit movie Stree, starring Rajkummar Rao and Shraddha Kapoor with Pankaj Tripathi, Aparshakti Khurrana, and Abhishek Banerjee appearing in supporting roles.
Badhaaiyan Tenu is a new track written by Vayu, for the upcoming comedy drama film Badhaai Ho directed by Amit Ravindernath Sharma. The film stars Ayushmann Khurrana and Sanya Malhotra in the lead roles. Badhaai Ho is tipped to be a coming-of-age story with a tinge of romance.
Vayu loves animals and has a pet cat called Pooki.
