Aika Abhijeet!

Abhijeet Sawant, India's first-ever Indian Idol, is well on his way to ultimate stardom, fame and fortune. To begin at the beginning, this teenager was one confused dude! To enter or not to enter the Indian Idol contest was a question that plagued his mind! So finally, it was his peers who helped him make up his mind. They were the ones who prodded Abhijeet into signing up! The rest, as they say, is history! Past, present and future. For, from now on we'll have to tune our ears and listen to the voice of Abhijeet. In other words, as they'd say in Marathi, aika Abhijeet (listen to Abhijeet)! Excerpts from an interview.

What are the first thoughts that enter your mind today?
At the very onset of the show, I never thought that I'd win the title. I knew I was a good singer, so all I wanted out of the contest was to be recognized as a singer! Period! So, when I finally got a slot among the final three winners, I realized that I had already achieved what I set out to. From then on it did not matter whether I became the Indian Idol or not. I wanted recognition! I'd got it! The Indian Idol title was just the cherry on the icing.

You've just released your first album?
It has been titled Aapka Abhijeet Sawant and comprises love songs. There are 10 numbers, of which 'Jaana' has been sung along with Prajakta Shukre, one of the Indian Idol contestants. 'Ek jahan' means 'One world' and highlights HIV. It features all the Indian Idol finalists. The album concludes with my winning performance of the song, 'Mohabbatein Lutaaunga' of which there is also a music video."

Why the unusual title?
The reason we named this album Aapka Abhijeet Sawant is because we wanted to respect the sentiments of all those millions who voted in for me. They chose me. I have to be grateful to them for that and so my album is my gift to them.

Did you always want to become a singer?
I dreamt about being a singer right through my school days and had made up my mind to pursue a singing career soon after my 10th standard exams. Inspite of the pressure to conform to the career plans my peers were following, I refused to walk down the well-trodden path of boring but safe career choices. I meticulously coached myself in classical singing, for three years, under Bhavdeep Jaipurwale. I look back on this fondly and prescribe it as a must-do for anyone who aspires to be a singer. I also play the tanpura and harmonium.

What about your studies?
I took care of my academic pursuits. I'm a B Com graduate from Chetana College and live in Mahim with my younger sister and parents. I'm the only one in the family who loves music besides my uncle, singer Sanjay Sawant. I have been inspired by him and remember admirers reacting to his musical performances.

Are you insecure about other Indian Idol contestants receiving plum offers, like Amit Tandon acting in a Sony serial, Rahul Vaidya's singing almost overshadowing you in another?
I am neither worried nor insecure about this. I'm instead happy for the other participants. We all tried our best. Just because the others did not win and are still getting offers, doesn't mean that I should get insecure. I wish them all success.

Have you changed after success touched you?
I am still the same person.

What does your contract with Sony include?
I've a two-year contract with Sony Entertainment Television (SET) and also a two-album deal with Sony Music. As a brand ambassador for Sony I'll also take part in serials and other events organized by SET.

And, has Bollywood beckoned?
Yes. I've already been getting offers and after this album I'll decide what to do about them. I want to go in for playback singing, especially for Shah Rukh Khan or Amitabh Bachchan.

Aren't talent hunts just a publicity gimmick for the organizers? Besides Sunidhi Chauhan not many have made it…
Talent hunts do bring out the true singer in you. But only if the singer wishes to work hard! You have to also be good in your field, to survive in the industry. This is because I've seen other talent hunts and what I've observed about them is that they concentrate more on the dancing, the performing and not on the singing. What they want is dancers, not singers. That is why they do not survive in the singing arena, be it playback or pop. I am a singer. Nothing else! I feel that if I put in more efforts I can soon rise to the top. I can tell you confidently that if I work hard and am good at my work you can meet me after five years for another interview.

You're a simple guy from a simpler background. Has all this adulation started getting on your nerves?
I'm happy that I've become so popular. My life-style has obviously changed. I am sure that no way would I want to go back to what I was, to where I came from. Well, earlier I did not have so much money and now that I have, I'm just enjoying life. Before Indian Idol happened, I had decided to give myself two to three years to make it as a singer and if nothing happened, to take up a desk job.

After Aapka Abhijeet Sawant it will only be next year that your second album will be launched. What if this first album comes a cropper?
I hope that the album does well for there are some touching songs in it. I'm confident that it will do well. I was not very much involved in the whole process of creating the album, but wherever I felt that I needed to change something I was given the freedom to speak out. I got a lot of help from the people who were involved in its making, like Raju Singh, Biddu, Hardip Sidhu etc. They taught me how to showcase my voice and trained me to sing certain parts of the songs.

Any tips for contestants of future talent (singing) contests?
The main reason that I am here is because of my song selection. I had selected mainly slow and romantic songs that touch the heart and I guess my style of singing them propelled me ahead of all the others.

Wrong question, but does the future worry you?
I don't think so! My labour has brought me the fruits in the form of the Indian Idol title and its perks: a one 1 crore contract with Sony, a Honda City car, and a trip to Switzerland. I'm happy. So, why worry?

Fanz (esp. of Bangladesh) would U tell me pleazzzzzzz what happened to D JUICE CONCERT, why the idols aren't coming??? U know I bought 7 D JUICE SIM CARDS, so that I can get the XTRA CARD which we need to enter the Stadium where the concert was said to be held. But now I heard that they'll come at the end of this May or at the 1st week of June .I'm sooo much excited to watch them especially Rahul Vaidya. Anyway Are U all watching the D JUICE CONCERT 1 on NTV (at 9.30p.m), when 1st time I saw it I was miserable because there were only 2 songs of both Sana & Saxena {dewana tera & Kal ho Na ho} shown & really I think that was their one of the bad performance but last week's episode was mind blowing both Sana & Saxena sung sooooooo well, I must admit that …hope tonight's episode will also create DHOOM!!!!! & Thikana pleazzzzzzzzzzzz yaar tell me about the D JUICE CONCERT 2.
