    Swanand Kirkire was born to Chintamani (father) and Neelambari (mother), both of who are classical singers. However he has no formal training in singing. The first try came with direction when Swanand wrote and directed a play on freedom fighter Bhagat Singh in New Delhi. During his theatre days, he learnt that Manju Singh, a television serial producer, was looking for a writer for his serial Swaraj, also on Bhagat Singh.
    Swanand was later introduced to filmmaker Pankaj Parashar, who in turn, introduced him to director Sudhir Mishra. Mishra was doing a serial called Talash, with his assistant Ruchi Narain. He started assisting Sudhir while he was making Calcutta Mail and then it continued with Chameli and Hazaaron Khwaishein Aisi.

    Swanand had written a song during his theatre days...Bawra mann dekhne chala ek sapna, Sudhir Mishra heard the song and decided to use it in his film Hazaaron Khwaishein Aisi. Music composer Shantanu Moitra decided to record it in Swanand's voice. Music was out and it became instant hit. Though the film's release got delayed but music was sold out. It became popular and the music company decided to re-release it again during the film's release
