About Puneet Dixit:
Puneet is a self-made artist. He never had any interest in music when he was a kid. Puneet was a professional cricketer and was amongst the top players under 17, who represented MP in cricket. He also won 9 national awards for the game. There came a time when he got selected for Ranji Trophy, and that was the same time when his interest got diverted to music.
The essence of music dragged him to this extent, that he decided to choose music as his career rather cricket, which was already established. This was not the only sacrifice made by him; Puneet dropped his final year of mechanical engineer to continue his passion in music direction. Puneet plays drums, keyboard, and guitar comfortably.

Straight from the Writer’s Desk:
Puneet is a passionate guy who loves to experiment with music. Music is his free time, his hobby, career, goal, and everything. I saw a little child in him who wanted to weep aloud when we were discussing about his grandfather’s contribution in his life. He simply considers his grandpa as his idol. Although, his grandfather is no more in this world, I am pretty sure his soul would be really proud to see him attaining success in music.
My best wishes are with Puneet Dixit and I am eager to see him flourish as one of the leading Music Directors of the Industry.
