The continuous pinging of messages from friends and fans woke up the artist at about 4 a.m. on Wednesday notifying him that Chopra tagged him in a post. “There are all these messages, ‘Wow, Priyanka Chopra just tagged you. What does this mean? This is something amazing.’ It didn’t really hit me,” Chatha told The Homestretch.
The former Miss. World and phenomenal actress shared a quick video of pictures of herself with Chatha’s latest hit “Vibes” playing in the background. Chopra is dropping some serious vibes in her shiny gold jacket, Pared sunglasses and Hunter boots on the streets of New York City.
So how does it feel to have Chopra be a fan of his music?
“It was like a dream come true,” Chatha told CBC News. “I have been following her since I was about five years old. I remember watching her getting crowned Miss World 2000, I remember my dad taking me to her movies. I have just been seeing her for the last 15 years and for me to get that shout out, it was quite the experience.”
Chatha has a large fan following anyway but with Chopra giving him props, the video for “Vibes” is raking in the views. According to Chatha, the track has caught the attention of other Bollywood stars and has become the number one most shazam-ed song in India. It was also on the top 10 on iTunes.
A trained musician since the age of 5, Chatha is known for his “senti” music. His music blends his Punjabi heritage, his love of Bollywood and the hip-hop music he grew up within Canada. Chatha is a skilled artist who has been producing hit Punjabi tracks and touring the world for the past few years. It’s no wonder even Chopra is a fan!
