On the lines of the other singing talent shows, 'Voice of India' directed and conceptualized by Gajendrra Siingh, the pioneer of 'Sa Re Ga Ma Pa', is in its audition stage.
After breaking away from Zee, Gajendrra has designed this show for Star. Though it is like its mother show, there are a few changes being made - like the audition process itself. The auditions are being held in the form of stage shows where the participants perform in front of the crowd and thus the selection process is transparent.
Since the auditions are on, we decided to catch up with singer Abhijeet Bhattacharya, one of the judges of the show. Abhijeet seemed pretty excited with the response the show is getting and said that this is the best lot of singers that he has ever come across. He was highly impressed by the contestants from Jaipur and Delhi. However, Abhijeet was unhappy with the response at Kolkata.
"I had expected a better response from Kolkata since it has produced good singers. But I guess most of them have opted for other shows where people are doing drama in the name of music". He even goes ahead to reconfirm if we have understood what he was saying.
Yes we do Abhijeet, but why do you want to get into further controversies?
