Sidharth was more excited of the two, when he met Sparsh Image: Twitter
A couple of years ago, this 12-year-old prodigy had impressed all with his cover of Eminem’s I’m not afraid, and people lauded the kid, who is suffering from Osteogenesis Imperfecta (brittle bones). With fragile bones but an unbreakable spirit, Sparsh Shah doles out inspiration for all.
As soon as the video went viral, he got oodles of Internet love, and now the 14-year-old is a star with his YouTube channel Purhythm. He was at Goa Fest recently, chatting away with celebrities.
The cute rap god found a fist-bump buddy in Sidharth Malhotra who was, just like us, mighty impressed by Sparsh’s questions and rapping eloquence. You've got to see it to believe it.
Thank you so much @S1dharthM for sharing our video. It was my pleasure too to meet you and see you speak at @livegoafest. You are an inspiration to today’s youth of India and abroad and l thoroughly loved talking to you! Hope to c u soon in NY/NJ.— Sparsh Shah-Purhythm (@SparshPurhythm) April 7, 2018
"When you meet a kid, who's like 'hey, I wanna be like you. I want to reach great heights, but I've grown up with people telling me that I could never do anything good in life'. What would you tell those kids?" Sparsh asked Sidharth.
That question was so mature and we love how Sid answered it. "If they can't see your dreams, that doesn't mean what you're imagining in your head isn't going to come true. Eventually, it's always you alone on the top. So, don't give up on your dreams and keep working hard," Sid told Sparsh.
Shoot for the moon; even if you miss, you’ll land among the star & don’t let anyone tell you that you cannot do it!— Sparsh Shah-Purhythm (@SparshPurhythm) April 7, 2018

Sparsh keeps churning out amazing covers and renditions. His favourite icon, of course, is Eminem and we are hoping one day this li’l rap god meets Slim Shady too.
