“It is very important to maintain that success and consistently work on creating good music and singing good songs. The struggle and hard work doesn’t end with winning a reality show. The key is to make the most of every opportunity that comes one’s way.”
For someone who has worked with the best known music composers in the industry including AR Rahman, Amit Trivedi, Shankar Ehsaan Loy, Vishal-Shehkhar, Pritam, Salim Sulaiman, Shantanu Moitra and Sanjay Leela Bhansali, she still remembers the time when along with her father, she would meet music directors to give them her demo CDs.
“I had no godfather in the industry. My only support was my family and my talent. It was purely my voice and hard work that fetched me work. Also, it is very important to stand out with your unique talent in order to get work.”
Forever looking forward to working with composers who like to experiment with her voice and push her limits, the singer is all praise for the work culture down south. “Not only are they extremely professional and polite, their sense of music is praiseworthy.”
