He found fame in 2017 with the song "Jaane De", sung by Atif Aslam, featured on the soundtrack of Qarib Qarib Singlle, and also composed songs for Munna Michael, which marked his singing debut, and the Marathi film FU: Friendship Unlimited. Under the tutelage of actor-producer Salman Khan, he composed the "Rafta Rafta" medley for Yamla Pagla Deewana Phir Se, marking his first project of 2018, whose music video features Khan in a special appearance;[2] he subsequently composed the romantic song "Selfish", written by and starring Khan for the action drama Race 3, while also composing the title track of Veere Di Wedding, starring Sonam Kapoor, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Swara Bhaskar and Shikha Talsania.[3]

Mishra's next project, and his first as a solo composer for songs and score, came with the Salman Khan-produced romantic drama Notebook. He rose to popularity with the song "Kaise Hua" from Kabir Singh, which became a rage among the audiences. His final album of the year was as a soundtrack composer for the Anurag Kashyap-produced Saand Ki Aankh, a biopic on the lives of the Shooter Dadis.[4]
