Whatfs in a song? Plenty
TVfs talent hunt shows do more than guarantee a singing career. Our correspondent looks at what they have done for winners and even losers
Question: What does a reality talent hunt show do for you? Well, it gives you a career in the heady world of Bollywood playback singing, maybe. Discs are being cut faster than a participant can sing a song. And therefs more to it than singing: therefs money, comforts and instant fame. From Popstars to Indian Idol and Fame Gurukul to the recently concluded Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Challenger, we have seen a whole new generation of talented youngsters become singers, actors and even writers.
The winners must have more than a good voice. Strong audience appeal and histrionic abilities are a must. A middle class background and strife-ridden home state are also preferable. A sense of drama helps.
Take Qazi Tauqeer: after Fame Gurukul made him richer by a Rs.10 million contract with Sony, a car and huge amounts in endorsement money, the once-aspiring singer realized his real passion was not singing but acting. Sony offered him K soaps, but Qazi turned them down saying hefs cut out for bigger things - read Bollywood.
Excerpts from the below:
This author writes about Abhijeet Sawant:
>>>>>And he doesnft care if he doesnft have a single film playback contract and that people still feel Amit Sana and Prajakta Shukre were better singers than him. >>>>>
But I think he has sung a decent track for "Assique Banaya Aaapne".- ? Must be a typo by the journo.
