Chauhan, who has sung popular numbers like 'Matargasthi', 'Tujhe Bhula Diya' and 'Sadda Haq', says he was interested in theatre and featured in full length stage plays after he graduated from his college.
    
"I did a lot of theatre. I finished my university, was part of NSD and did full length plays on stage. In fact, at one point of time I wanted to get into FTII, but there were no acting courses then. I think it started only a couple of years ago. So I missed the opportunity," Chauhan said.

The singer first came into limelight with the song 'Dooba Dooba' from his band Silk Route. After the band dissolved, Chauhan came up with the song 'Guncha' from the 2005 movie 'Main, Meri Patni Aur Woh'.
    
Even though he later sang for music composer AR Rahman in 'Rang De Basanti', it was the 2007 Pritam-composed 'Tum Se Hi' from 'Jab We Met' which got him mainstream success.
    
The 49-year-old singer feels now he is at a stage where he can try different things, such as acting in films and TV, provided he likes the content.
