She belongs to the family who own T-Series. But that is certainly not her claim to fame. Fulfilling her father, late Gulshar Kumar’s dream of wanting his daughter to become a singer, Tulsi Kumar has left no stone unturned in doing just that. She says, “It was my fathers dream to see me singing. So somehow it was understood in my family that I would become a singer”.

She has been getting trained in classical singing since the age of six from the Suresh Wadkar Academy and with Pandit Vinod Mishra for the last four years. She is now geared up for her first solo album whose lyrics are penned by Sameer and music by Monty Sharma, she has also completed her recordings for the forthcoming “Karzzzz” directed by Satish Kaushik & “Kajraare” directed by Pooja Bhatt. She started her playback career with Himesh Reshammiya for the for the film Aksar – Janaab-e-Jaaniya followed by Humko Deewana Kar Gaye, Tom Dick & Harry, Dil Diya Hai, Zindagi Rocks, Chup Chup Ke, Darling, Bhool Bhulaiyaa to name a few. She has also lent her voice for the Hit Album “Phir Bewafaai” with Mr. Agam Nigam. She is quick to add, “I come from a very religious family and as a person I am religious too. So to get Gods blessings I first started out with singing devotional songs and have lent my voice to as many as 7 devotional albums. I even did a lot of remix numbers and cover versions. I wanted to explore the whole gamut of songs before getting into mainstream playback singing.

She is very grateful to her family who consistently stood by her and helped her in her pursuit to become a singer. She says her Brother, Mr. Bhushan Kumar, MD T-Series, has been her inspiration. “He has worked very hard from a very young age and surmounted grave difficulties single handedly. He has inspired me to work hard too and to make it on my own merit”. Just in her early Twenties, She is an ardent fan of Lataji & her favourite song is Chand Phir Nikla from the movie Paying Guest. When quizzed about her future plans she adds with conviction, “I definitely want to sing and create a niche for myself in the Music industry”. With such self-belief we are in no doubt that here is a singer to watch out for!
