From breaking the barrier for regional rap through films like Kaala to making his way to the hearts of netizens with a rap on Panipuri, LBB catches up with the 29-year-old rapper as he talks about his love for Irani chai, music and a lot more about Hyderabad.

The Moonshine Project Tops The List

When asked about his favourite venue for live music? Pranav picked The Moonshine Project, a resto-pub and lounge café that keeps on conducting concerts by versatile musicians. Although the city has a happening music scene, there are just a few places that are dedicated to regional music.

Hyderabad has been known for biryani for ages. Because it's rich and vibrant just like the city. For Pranav, the place that serves the best is Bawarchi at RTC Cross Road in Nallakunta; the only original Bawarchi with a sign that says 'no branches' and many certificates proclaiming it the best biryani hub in the city. Whether you are a non-vegetarian or not, this place has tons of varieties to serve you.
