Varun Khare, Business Head, Paytm Insider, said, ‘’We at Paytm Insider are thrilled to be touring with Ashish Bagrecha as he performs his unique and powerful poetry- live for fans across the country. After a successful start to his tour earlier this year, the tour now moves on to its second phase where we hope to run sold out houses across each of the 12 shows. The connect that he has as an artist to his fans through his beautiful storytelling makes it feel like you’re having an intimate conversation with your friend and that’s the power of his presence and artistry. We hope to grow this unique genre further and offer more of such curated experiences to our consumers.”
A poet at heart, Ashish is also an author, podcaster, entrepreneur, performer and speaker. He began writing shayaris and songs when he was a teenager. Later, he started writing letters and poems and in 2013, released his first book ‘Loved, Lost and Lived’. His first poetry book ‘Love, Hope and Magic’ was published under his own publishing house and gained immense popularity. In 2018, the Surat-based author was battling with mental health issues and to constructively let his feelings out, while also helping others in the process, led to him writing his experiences and solutions in his book ‘Dear Stranger, I Know How You Feel’ – which is a collection of 30 letters and poems. This book was even ranked among the top 10 books by Indian authors on Amazon and has sold lakh of copies.
Last time, Ashish Bagrecha’s India Tour, curated by YOSN Innovation and Paytm Insider which took place in February 2023, and covered cities like Mumbai, Pune, Bangalore, Kolkata, Delhi, Surat, and Ahmedabad sold around 3800 tickets across 7 cities, making the tour a huge success.
