Some Lesser Known Facts About Sanam Puri

  • His father used to listen to Indian music, which brought influence on both Sanam and Samar.
  •  At the age of six, he started to compose music and sing. Both the brothers used to compose music for their parents to surprise them.
  • Sanam started writing song lyrics at a very young age of 12. His parents, after realizing his talent, offered him full support in fulfilling his dream of becoming a singer.
  • During his school days in 2003, his brother, Samar Puri and his classmate, Venky S or Venkat Subramaniyam (bass guitar) decided to make a band and took Sanam as the vocalist. After completing their schooling, three of them moved to India to pursue college.
  • During his college days, Sanam, Samar and Venky got involved in a college rock circuit, where they met Keshav Dhanraj (drummer).
  • At the same time, Sanam participated in many singing competitions and won them.
  • During his college days, he was ragged and bullied by his seniors, and the incident is unpleasurable and unforgettable for him. Talking about it, he says,

    Meri bahut ragging hui thi, Kirori Mal ki Dramatic Society ke members bahut bully karte they. My seniors locked me in a room and spoke to me in a manner which I can’t even describe. They used foul language to make it more horrific. Woh sab ek emotional torture ki tarah tha. And the weirdest part of it was that my seniors apologized for what they did to me. I shared the experience me with my parents and they advised me not to take it seriously.”
