Antara Mitra grew up with music: Her father is a music teacher. Since the age of three, Antara would sing along with other children who came home to learn music from her father.A fun-loving and straightforward girl, Antara is a confident performer, something that even Farah Khan accepted during the theatre round.
But this didn't mean that Antara didn't consider other career options. At one time, she was keen on taking up medicine but gave up the thought on discovering the high fees for the course. Today she aims to be a singer, if not a music teacher or a professor, like her father.
A fun-loving and straightforward girl, Antara is a confident performer, something that even Farah Khan accepted during the theatre round. An admirer of Asha Bhonsle, Alka Yagnik, Kishore Kumar, Sonu Nigam and Jagjit Singh, Antara hopes that some day, someone will take her name in the same league.

REFRESH ANTARA'S CHAT
ipshi.777(Its Antara's cousin) asks hi antara remember me its mona(ipshita mitra). i just wanted to ask u that how did u feel when u were announced the contestant with the highest no. of vote??? anyways tanu didi aamii jaantaam kii tumi highest votes paabe.u sang very well
Celebrity says I was too stunned. I knew I would be among the top three, but I didn;t think I would top. I thought people would vote based on region, and in my village, there would be few people who could afford to vote for me. But I was wrong!
sumeshsnair(Its me LOL) asks ANTARA & SAGAR ALL the best....tell me whom do u both think as biggest threat among gals & guys?
Celebrity says Sagar: Karunya Antara: I think everybody could be a threat -- It all depends on who performs well on a particular day.
whiz2kids2002 asks antra what is the real sceret behind your great achivment
Celebrity says My love for music, nothing else! I eat, drink and sleep music. I wanted to become a doctor, but couldn't do that because of financial reasons. From then on, I was determined to make a mark in music.
'I'm not in love with Antara' (Panna out chat)
mona_saini asks ANTRA WHO WOULD U LIKE TO DATE IN GUYS ON THE II2. WHO DO U THINK IS THE HOTTEST?
indianidol says Panna!!!!!! But he's out now
mashy25 asks wen is ur bday antara?n whom among da guys do u like the most??
indianidol says July 10. I think Amey is a very nice and mature person.
asthamathur21 asks Antara who is ypur favourite contestant among all contestants and why??
indianidol says As singers, I like Amey and Karunya. I'm a little confused as to who I like more, but I think Amey brings a little more feel to the song. But then, Karunya is still very young and has a lot of time to catch up.
smartalec asks hi antara, why do u cry so much for other contestants...it seems like a drama...plz do not overact like this..u r here just to sing not show ur acting skills
indianidol says It's just that I get attached to people very easily, and yes, I am a very, very emotional person.
smartalec asks Hi panna, i'm sorry u were voted out dude...now tht u can no longer win this competetion ..who do u think is most desrving candidate to win this year's Indian Idol..????????
indianidol says Antara Mitra
sonaahana asks Hi Antara, Did you always want to be a singer?Who taught you?How did you decide that your career was singing?
indianidol says Yes, I've always wanted to be a singer. My father is a music teacher and I learnt the basic Saregampa from him. When I was 10, I went to learn classical music from Shobana Mukherjee. Mine is a music-oriented family. Music has always been part of our life. Papa thought I was quite good at music, and told me to consider music as a career.
sonyaee asks Antara, who is your favorite singer and why?
indianidol says Ashaji. Because she's the most versatile female singer in India. She's perfect and she's my inspiration.
sonyaee asks antara, why only two girls left in II2? Do you think viewers prefer male contestants and why?
indianidol says Yes, they do. More women watch Indian Idol. When I watched idol 1, I always voted for Rahul Vaidya and Amit Sanaa, but barely voted for Prajakta or Aditi. Women watch more TV, vote more and tend to vote for male contestants
monamine asks Antara: since Minni asked Meenal who is the hottest guy among Indian idol contestant n didnt ask u I want to ask you that same question
indianidol says Panna!!!
Amey has no time for a Valentine bash!(Monali out chat)
deepeshgarg_eca asks hi meenal congrats u safe i have voted for u i want to ask u that u think a girl cant make indian idol
idol says Surely, why not? It's true that in the last three weeks, girls have been getting voted out. But I think Antara and I can give a good fight to the guys.
'Meenal is just a good friend' (Amey Ravi chat)
Megha_Amey asks hi ravi, itz sad that once u sang really well and got voted out, my question for u is, now that u are out..who do u think is the most deserving for the 4 males and 2 females for the idol title?
celebrity says Amey Date! Among girls, I think both Meenal and Antara are equally good.
sonyaee asks Hi Amey, how are you? If you could sing a song sung by another II2 contestant, which one would it be and why? Thanks!
celebrity says I'd like to sing Tere Bina, which Antara sang in the Retro Round. I love that Lataji song, and had I been a girl, I would have sung that!
Antara Karunya chat(After Antara out)
madhy asks antara..who is ur fav judge aomong the indian idol judges?
karunya says It has to be Sonuji... he is always so straightforward with the singers about their performance.
sandy.sharmaa asks hi antra i think this tym ur exit was obvious coz last tym u said indias janta should vote wid brains.... that was so rude.... these people gave u so much love and respect and so really hurt us... so thats y u r out today.... my advice for u is next ti
karunya says I did not mean that they should vote with their brains. It just came out that way. What I meant was that they should listen to the singing and then vote, and not based on the overall performance. Because sometimes a contestant may sing very well, but their stage performance may not be up to the mark.
smartalec_06 asks Hi antara, what was your best and worst moment on Indian Idol???
karunya says My best moment was when I was selected in the Top 28. And my worst moment was when I lost my voice for a while and could not practise.
sp_iniocl asks ANTARA JI, HERE IS SAPNA AGAIN WANT TO ASK U THAT WHAT IS YOUR AIM IN LIFE AND WHAT WILL U DO FOR IT. AND PLEASE SAY SOME WORDS TO YOUR FANS ABOUT THE WAY OF LIVING LIFE.
karunya says Hi Sapna. My aim in life is to be a really good singer and I will try very hard to make my dreams come true. I say that everyone should be confident in themselves.
smartalec_06 asks Hell Antara, U came from a small village how did you find life in Mumbai??
karunya says It was very good. In my village, life comes to a halt by 9 pm. But in Mumbai things start only then. There is pace and movement in Mumbai life and I love that.
deepa1021 asks Antara, what are your future plans?
karunya says I want to sing, sing, sing... be it playback or for albums.
gorgeousgal_1 asks antra whats ur moto in life??
karunya says My motto in life is just like my blood group: B+
smartalec_06 asks Hi Antara, you are a very beautiful girl would you like to work in movies if you are given a chance??
karunya says Yesh, of course I would like to. :) But I should get a good offer, a good role.
sonyaee asks Hi Antara, which Bollywood actress would you like to playback sing for?
karunya says I would like to sing for Kajol, Ash, Preity and Rani.
sonyaee asks ~~~Antara, We Ur Fans want to See u Win a FilmFare Award in Upcoming Future and We know u can Do it!! , Ur Bestest Fans Karishma N Sumesh~~~
karunya says Singing is my life and I will work hard to achieve my dreams. Thank you for your confidence in me. :)
smartalec_06 asks Hi Antara...i'm anjali frm and my friend karishma from US who is one of your biggest fan wants to know which contestant on Indian Idol are you closest with? Name one?
