No Record Found.
We all like watching reality shows that showcase that our country is no short of talent when it comes to performing arts. Our industry is known for its song and dance. And it wouldn’t have been possible if it was not for our sensational playback singers that music will be an essential part of the industry for years to come. But of the many reality shows that are made for entertaining the audience, how many have been successful in actually providing talents to the industry? Well if not winners, here is list of 10 singing sensations who in the beginning of their career were first a part of the many singing reality shows:
Shekhar along with Vishal may have been responsible for creating many a hit, but not many know that Shekhar was once a part of the reality show Sa Re Ga Ma Pa. Vishal-Shekhar first came together for the song Tu Hi Aashiqui Hai from Jhankaar Beats, and it is since then the two have been one of the most successful duo in the industry. Shekhar has also made his acting debut and was noticed in Om Shanti Om, Happy New Year, and a prominent part in Neerja.
Shreya was noticed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali when she first a contestant on Sa Re Ga Ma Pa, and it is from there that her journey began. While she was only 16 then, Shreya’s voice not her won her the competition, but also fans worldwide. She has also sung songs in various other languages (Tamil, Malayalam, Telugu, Kannada, etc.) and has won many awards and recognition. She made her singing debut with Bairi Piya in Devdas, and also sang Dola Re along with Kavita Krishnamurthy.
One of the most popular and loved singer was once a part of the reality show Fame Gurukul. He though didn’t win on the song, but his life is no short of inspiration. He rose to fame with Tum Hi Ho in Aashiqui 2, post which whatever romantic song he sang became the season’s favourite. His fame to claim is nothing but his soulful music, and his mesmerizing voice.
This rockstar was first introduced in the industry by the Meet Brothers, but before that she has also been a contestant on the show Indian Idol season 2 in 2006. She is very well known for her bindass attitude, and has sung songs like Dhating Naach (Phata Poster Nikla Hero), Sunny Sunny (Yaariyan), Manali Trance (The Shaukeens), and many more such that have had the audience to the music. She also has a very great connect with her fans on the social media, and she often posts videos of her singing.
Armaan was once a part of the Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Lil Champs, and was positioned eighth on the show. The boy who just turned 22 was a playback singer for many films till he earned his claim to fame through Main Hoon Hero Tera in the film Hero. With immense support from Salman Khan and T-series, Armaan has been successful in winning hearts too quick. His brother Amaal Malik has always been a constant support, but the two still don’t call themselves a duo and are also comfortable working with other composers and singers respectively.
She though earned recognition for crooning Sawar Loon (Lootera) and Moh Moh Ke Dhaage (Dum Laga Ke Haisha), but she got her first break through music director Pritam when she sang Zara Zara Touch Me and Khawab Dekhe in Race. She was a contestant on the reality show Indian Idol season 2, and belongs to a singing background. Her father, Shakti Thakur is a renowned Bengali singer, and it is with him that she trained to be where she is today.
Neeti was one of the winners of Popstars on Channel V, which made a member of the pop group Aasma with the other winners of the show. Neeti’s claim to fame is Ishq Wala Love from Student Of The Year, post which she went on to sing Jiya Re from Jab Tak Hain Jaan that got on the list of our favourites. She has also sung songs in various other languages and has a mass appeal.
Harshdeep won the reality show Junoon – Kuch Kar Dikhane Ka in 2008. The show had an altogether different concept wherein the three genres of music – Sufi, Bollywood, and Folk competed against each other. Singers from across the border too were a part of the show. She got first recognized for voicing Ek Onkar in Rang De Basanti, and though she sang many songs post that it was Katiya Karoon from Rockstar that finally got her a name in the industry. But Heer from Jab Tak Hain Jaan remains the ultimate favourite of mine from all the songs that she has crooned.
Antara too was a contestant on the reality show Indian Idol season two, and has sung some of the our favourites which include Gerua (Dilwale), Saare Ke Fall Sa (R…Rajkumar), Janam Janam (Dilwale), Itni Si Baat Hai (Azhar), and many more. She hails from West Bengal, and similarly like Harshdeep she too was a contestant on Junoon. Her father is no short than an inspiration as he is a music teacher, and it is since a very young age that Antara has been learning music along with the other children who came to learn music from her father.
Life has come full circle for this talented singer, for once she started out as a participant and then the winner of the reality show Meri Awaaz Suno, and today she is one amongst the judges on the show The Voice India. She started her career young and has many a songs to her credit. But as she has had a successful career in singing, Sunidhi has now also moved on to be a part of films by acting in them. This girl was to make it big from day one!
