Sunil Bector, AKA ishQ (Sachin Photography)
Sunil Bector, AKA ishQ, grew up in Fort Richmond in south Winnipeg, but went off to Mumbai four years ago to seek his fame and fortune. He got his big break in Mumbai when his buddy Nitin Gupta invested in his first video "Aye Hip-Hopper".
Now he's signed a deal with Universal India and is on the top of the charts on the Indian hip-hop scene. Wait, there's more. He's taking on Bollywood now. He's composed, performed and produced many songs for films such as Race, Ugly aur Pagli, Always Kabhi Kabhi, and will be the leading music director for a new film called Bheja Fry 2.
Ishq is in Winnipeg this week and Terry Macleod, of CBC's Information Radio, caught up with him this morning. SCENE has the complete uncut version of their conversation.
