After India saw its first female Indian Idol in Sourabhee Debbarma in the fourth season of Indian Idol last year, this year it is again the league of boys who took over the stage. Twenty five year old Sreeram Chandra from Hyderabad won the Indian Idol Season five this Sunday (August 15). Competing with the Gujarati girl Bhoomi Trivedi and Agra boy Rakesh Maini, Sreeram won the Indian Idol title.
The Grand finale was held at Filmistan Studio, and saw Bollywood veteran Amitabh Bachchan as the chief guest. Bachchan was a religious follower of the reality show, all thanks goes to wife Jaya Bachchan, who loves to watch Indian Idol. Seeram was awarded the Indian Idol honour by the actor. He was showered with a cash prize of Rs. 50 lakh, a car, a motor bike and one-year contract with Sony TV. Above all he got a life time chance to sing in one of the next Yash Raj Production.
Sreeram was the favourite of the audience and the judges from day one. With his dedication and singing talent, he proved himself to be a versatile singer and the most deserving person for the title. Sreeram has already sung few songs for Telugu movies before entering Indian Idol. He has even recorded a song with Shreya Ghosal composed by Salim- Suleman for an upcoming movie before winning the reality show.
With all gratitude and love, Sreeram thanked all for supporting and voting for him.
We at oneindia wish this new voice a great future ahead.
