MALLIK PRAMITA BOSE 10 The Score Magazine He started young and scaled to the top to rake in name, fame and moolah over a short span. But 25-yearold composer Amaal Mallik hasn’t got things easy on his plate. For his is not a typical ‘he came, he saw and he conquered’ kind of a story to boast of. Despite being born with a legendary musical lineage, Amaal like his younger singer-brother Armaan too struggled his way to the ladder of success and climbed it up on his sheer talent and patience. Barely four years into the industry, this smart kid on the block already flashes a Filmfare statuette in his pocket with a broad sunny smile. By his own admission, the outspoken Amaal poured his heart out to The Score Magazine on his pedigree, formal taalim, key musical influences, sibling- bonding, new trends in the music industry, adulation of fans and much more in a no-holds-barred interview.
