"Music is my life, without music I will just perish, I cannot perform. Whenever I perform, there is some music running in my head and I perform for that music," the 29-year-old said here Friday at the launch of the cover of Star Week magazine featuring him and Sonam Kapoor.

"Music is my food, my love, my life , everything," he added.
