  2. ^ "Savan Kotecha, Songwriter". ofindianorigin.co.uk. Retrieved 24 October 2015. I come from a pretty traditional Gujarati family and that made getting into the music business pretty tricky. My parents like most Indian parents, wanted me to go to Uni and be a Doctor or Lawyer. That meant I was on my own for the most part as far as figuring out how to ‘make it’. It also gave me something to prove which made me work extra hard.
