Mithoon was born into a family of musicians. His grandfather, Pandit Ram Prasad Sharma imparted music knowledge to thousands of aspirants, many of whom are amongst today’s top musicians. His father, Naresh Sharma was a leading music arranger having worked with almost all the top composers in more than 200 movies and his uncle Pyarelal ji formed one half of the legendary composer duo Laxmikant-Pyarelal.
Mithoon began his career as a composer in 2006 at the young age of 22 with the movie ‘Bas Ek Pal’. A song in the movie ‘Tere Bin’ catapulted Pakistani singing sensation Atif Aslam into the limelight. Mithoon
followed this up with another melodious score for ‘Anwar’. Later movies like ‘The Train’, ‘Lamhaa’, ‘3G’ etc followed and although the movies did not fare too well, the music was very well received.
Mithoon also scored music for a Malaysian movie called ‘Diva’ where he collaborated with Malaysian R&B singer, Ning Baizura.
He has been a guest composer on a host of movies including ‘Murder 2’, ‘Jism 2’ & 'Yaariyan'.
He composed music for Ek Villain which became the biggest soundtrack of 2014.
