Rap is always anti-establishment: Raftaar
By Sukant Deepak
New Delhi, May 14 (IANS) Interestingly, one of the most well-known rappers in the country, Dilin Nair aka Raftaar, who raps in Hindi, Punjabi and Haryanvi happens to be a Malayali. "Most people don't know this fact. After Malaika Arora Khan revealed that I am a Malayali on 'India's Got Talent', my Facebook and Twitter pages were filled with queries. In fact, some even thought that I had signed on a Malayalam movie and was promoting it. I was born in Kerala but largely grew up in a hostel in Haryana. That is how I am good at Punjabi and Haryanvi. I thoroughly enjoy rapping in these languages," he tells IANS.
