Anjana Padmanabhan: I Want To Be A Pilot And A Playback Singer Too!

 Anjana Padmanabhan, the 10-year-old talent who has won the first Indian Idol Junior title, aspires to fly higher, literally! She wants to become a pilot but she would also like to establish herself as a playback singer.
"I want to become a pilot but I have always wanted to become a playback singer too," Padmanabhan told over phone from Mumbai.
Will she be able to balance both worlds? "Yes, I'll manage," she said in an innocent tone, a day after she was announced the winner of the "Indian Idol Junior" finale Sunday.
There's something else also that she wants to balance. Unsure of how she will handle the limelight, she said: "As of now I will try to balance both my studies and my passion for singing."
The young talent, who is based in Bangalore, sang Hindi songs on the show without knowing the language. Her powerful renditions won her several fans.
Children's reality shows are often under the scanner for putting kids under unnecessary stress and pressure. But Padmanabhan says her parents have been more than supportive throughout her journey. "There was no pressure from my parents. They just said 'Whatever you do is good. You have already made us proud'," she said.
