Another talent hunt, 'Voice of India', which is obviously looking for a good singer, finished it auditions and moved a stepped ahead to finalize the 12 participants who will fight it out in the finals of the show.
The show is directed and produced by Gajendrra Siingh under his own production house Sai Baba Telefilms Limited. Gajji (as he is popularly known among his crew) claims that the show has already made a huge fan following for it.
If we have to believe this man then they have auditioned "around 89 thousand participants" for the competition at various places all over India. Gajji also claimed of a certain poll on the Internet "where 86% of the people voted for 'Voice of India' as the best".
These are huge figures no doubt. But something that was noticed in a press conference recently might interest a lot of people. In a candid chat over lunch with journalists, Gajendrra was heard asking them about 'Sa Re Ga Ma Pa'. The common question which he had for all was "How are you finding 'Sa Re Ga Ma Pa'? or "Do you still find that good quality singers on 'Sa Re Ga Ma Pa'?
It is true that the show is Gajji's baby, but then it is now his past. The only two ways in which this so-called 'concern' could be interpreted is either Gajji is still 'genuinely concerned about the show' or 'the popularity of the show it is a matter of concern for him'!
Well, we do not know the truth, but it is true that Gajendrra and 'Sa Re Ga Ma Pa' are inseparable.
