Sachin Gupta (born 12 August 1984 in New Delhi) is an Indian music director, composer, guitarist, record producer and a Singer. His work has spanned everything from playing live shows with his previous band 'Mrigya' to composing indie pop albums for artists like Atif Aslam, Alisha Chinoy, Jal, Ahmed Jahanzeb, Apache Indian and Mika among others.

Sachin Gupta was born in a family of doctors and has studied science at school level. He was in Frank Anthony and spent a couple of years in Apeejay School in New Delhi. Having gotten through IIT-Delhi in Mechanical Engineering, Sachin decided to instead study physics (honours) and went to Sri Venkateswara College in Delhi University. But after a year, he moved to study B.Com (Hons) at Shahid Bhagat Singh College while pursuing music simultaneously. He was introduced to the guitar at the age of 7 by his mother and ever since, he took music as his calling in life. He has performed at over 600 concerts across various countries including Dubai, London, Singapore, New Zealand and Australia that has included major music festivals such as the Jazz Fest, Edinburgh Fest and Scotland Fest. He met with the Vice-President of TIPS Films in London during one of his shows, and he moved to Mumbai in 2005. A progression into Bollywood came naturally to him.

Indie pop

Sachin has made a variety of songs under various genres. His rock tones in his compositions for Atif Aslam's Doorie brought him fame in dismal indie music scene. He has composed and produced tracks on Mika's album Dunali, Ashok Masti's Clap on the Beat and Alisha Chinnoy's Shut Up N Kiss Me. He also produced tracks for Apache Indian and UK based Khiza. Other names include Pakistani artists Jal, Adeel and Ahmed Jahanzeb. Presently Sachin is working on two Indian bands, Rooh and Ni9NE.

Film career

Sachin ventured into Bollywood with the two promotional tracks called Yaad Aaye Woh Pal and Farishta for the Jimmy Shergill-KK Menon starrer Strangers released in 2007. His first full-fledged film is Dil Kabaddi that stars Irrfan Khan, Soha Ali Khan, Rahul Bose, Konkona Sen Sharma and Rahul Khanna. His music is a mix of reggaeton beats in the groovy Utha Le Ya Phek De. He shared his voice with Jaspreet Singh for the single Ehsaan which is a soulful melody. He also directed Fateh Ali Khan on the track Zindagi Ye in the same film. His music in the film Bolo Raam has a nice contemporary sound and is somewhat different than Sachin's earlier works. The songs Maa and Tere Ishq Mein are cord-touching soulful numbers. He was featured in Prince, a TIPS film with Kumar Taurani that has Viveik Oberoi in the lead. His second film was Manoj Bajpai starrer Jugaad. The rock version of its title track Tension Lene Ka Nahin Dene Ka which was introduced in Ni9NE, got rave reviews from public. His music for the movie Jo Hum Chahein that had lyrics by Kumaar was widely appreciated for its complete soundtrack appeal, his next film album is for Yash Raj Films youth film division Y-Films production Mere Dad Ki Maruti where he teams up with lyricist Kumaar again.

Personal life

Though there have been numerous rumours around the personal life of Sachin Gupta, he has never openly come out and spoken about the same. There were also rumours about his alleged marriage to a starlet from Bollywood a few years back but all of this has been proven untrue. He has been linked to many women in the past. Currently, Sachin is single and firmly believes in his work speaking for itself while he keeps his personal life, personal.
