'I really don't admire any of the singers now'

Playback queen Alka Yagnik, whose mellifluous voice was last heard on the Bombay Talkies soundtrack, says there isn't any singer from the current generation whom she admires, apart from Shreya Ghoshal.

In a chat with this correspondent, Alka shared that she doesn't like to sing what is offered to her these days. "The melodies from the past were songs that had deep meaning. If I get something like that again, then I will definitely take it up," she said.
Explaining why she doesn't admire much of the singing today, she said, "I really don't admire any of the singers. You need to see how long they'll sustain their careers in the industry because the music world is changing. I don't see anybody apart from Shreya (Ghoshal) who is stable. What really matters is your run in the music world race. Earlier, people might have been in the industry for two decades, now that's not the case." Udit Narayan, Shaan, Abhijeet and Sonu Nigam are among the male counterparts that Alka professes admiration for.
Incidentally, Alka holds the record for the highest number of Filmfare awards for her singing, jointly with Asha Bhosle. She has also won two National Awards. How does that make her feel? "I am very humbled by it," Alka said. "I feel proud about what I have achieved. Ashaji and Lataji are goddesses of music and there is no way that I can compare myself to them. As for the awards, I'm honoured that people love my voice."

Sounds like someone is upset because of lack of work haha...she shouldn't bash the new singers, how unprofessional and sad.
Even the legendary Lata encourages and supports contestants on the Indian Idol show. So who does Alka think she is?
Love how she conveniently left out Sunidhi Chuahan, who is just as iconic as Shreya.
