Venkata Naga Rajesh’s Answer
Based on your question, I understand that you choose to consider your career as playback singer and not just a part time hobby.
According to me, the prime requirement for a playback singer is to know basics in music. I assume you already have it (completed some levels in for ex: Carnatic music ?) If not already done, you should be starting here.
If you already have the prerequisites and only need a breakthrough, then the best thing would be to start recording yourself some karaoke songs and upload them on social networking sites (youtube, Facebook etc). For pre-recorded music tracks there are several Mobile apps that you can make use of. This will also help you grow your network with similar set of people.
I know couple of my friends who have followed the same and are now into setting up strong base as a playback singer.
Good luck to you.
