Mini Biography :
Anand Raaj Anand hails from Delhi and belongs to a jeweller’s background. He was extremely passionate about music since he was a child. On stage at school, he would sing his own compositions rather than film songs. He even convinced his college principal to start musical activities.He was also part of a music group, which participated and won numerous local competitions.

His love for music and desire to create his own identity brought him to Mumbai in 1992, which heralded his struggle in the industry. Ironically no one was interested in his multi-faceted skills of writing lyrics, composing and singing as well. Thus, the singer took a backseat and he chose to come forth as a composer.

Pravin Shah of Times Music finally recorded seven songs out of which three were used in the film ‘Masoom’. One of Anand’s creations; ‘Chota Baccha Samajhke’ became a hit. And soon enough he gave music for films like ‘Major Saab’, ‘Qila’, ‘Pardesi Babu’ and ‘Ek Hindustani’.

It was after these films, that the industry took note of this unqualified musician. His latest films are Sanjay Gupta’s ‘Kaante’, Feroz Khan’s ‘Janasheen’ and the forthcoming ‘Sarhad Paar’. At a time when the industry is flooded with techno beats and remixes, Anand has adapted to the market’s requirements and yet retained the unique quality of his music.
