The ‘Nightingale’ and Surron ki Saraswati Lata Mangeshkar handed him the much awaited trophy of ‘Voice of India’. Impressed by the exceptional talent of the finalists, Lata ji has also gifted them two exclusive diamond studded gold watches from her Swarnanjali collection costing nearly Rs three lakh each. Besides this, the winner has also bagged an exclusive singing contract with Big Music for three years and has also been gifted a brand new Chevrolet Aveo U-VA. But this journey has not been a cake walk for Ishmeet and Harshit.

The journey of Amul STAR Voice of India began in May 2007 with many talented aspiring singers being chosen from across six city auditions conducted at Kolkata, Delhi, Mumbai, Lucknow, Indore and Jaipur. The show had a panel of five esteemed judges – Alka Yagnik, Abhijeet, Aadesh Srivastava, Jatin Pandit, Lait Pandit - and the celebrity host, Shaan. The mercury rose steadily on the show as STAR Plus turned up the heat with neck-to-neck competition from diversely talented singers. From among the selected talent from across all auditions, only 33 made their way to Mumbai. Tough competition and even tougher elimination finally got twelve very talented contestants called the ‘Bemisaal 12’ at the centrestage. Viewer voting resulted in plenty shocks and surprises. Many budding talented singers were unexpectedly voted out of this contest but their presence still remains. Eliminated contestants Toshi, Irfan, Sumitra and Abhas have already recorded songs for leading composers like Pritam, Aadesh Srivastava and Sajid-Wajid for upcoming Hindi films.

Amul STAR Voice of India witnessed many celebrities gracing the show with their unique acts, singing & dancing on stage with the young contestants. Ranging from eminent sarod player - Ustad Amzad Ali Khan to Bollywood heart throbs: Rani Mukherjee, Deepika Padukone, John Abraham, Bipasha Basu, Shahid Kapur, Rishi Kapoor and Neetu Singh, Hema Malini, Anil Kapoor, Shiney Ahuja, Ali Khan">Soha Ali Khan, Konakan Sen, Govinda, and many more celebrities. Overwhelmed with their talent, these celebrities have encouraged, appreciated and supported the contestants of Amul Star Voice of India, so much so that the contestants were showered with gifts. Among them was Aadesh Srivastava who gifted Abhaas, Ishmeet and Harshit each a brand new Chevrolet Spark.

No matter who the winner is, this platform has given every participant a very strong dais and exposure to the world of music in India and internationally. This journey has indeed been a very special experience for every participant and also for the entire team of Amul STAR Voice of India.

This is not the end of the journey but a new beginning. The platform is being extended to younger kids with a new offering STAR Voice Of India – Chottey Ustad about to hit the screens shortly.

Going forward STAR wishes these budding singers all the very best for their successful and bright future!!
