Due to his inclination towards music, Roshan often went to watch movies. During this he did a movie, Puran Bhagat. Saw it. Roshan loved a bhajan in the voice of playback singer Sehgal in the movie Hypuran Bhagathav. He was so impressed by this hymn that he watched the film several times.

When Manohar Barve went on stage and said that he is now going to present you the greatest singer in the country, Roshan would have been disappointed because he didn’t like the word singer. Until then, Roshan could not decide whether to become a singer or a composer.
After some time, Roshan left home and went to Lucknow and started learning music from Ratan Jankar, the headmaster of Morris College of Music. After taking music lessons for about five years, he came to Maihar and started taking music lessons from Ustad Allauddin Khan. One day Allauddin Khan asked Roshan, ‘How many hours a day do you do Riyaz? Roshan said proudly, “Two hours during the day and two hours at night. Hearing this, Allaudin Khan said that if he cannot do Riyaz for eight hours a day, then he can leave from here by picking up his bag and bed. Roshan was touched by this and he started doing Riyaz with passion. His hard work soon paid off and he learned the nuances of the note’s ups and downs. Musician Roshan
