Vishal Dadlani says singers and musicians are one community
Amongst the few who stood out in Indian Idol season 11, were Sunny and Azmat Hussain who got encouragement from Vishal Dadlani
It seems that Indian Idol season 11 has got one of the finest starts on Sunday with some outstanding performances by contestants in the auditions.
Amongst the few who stood out were Sunny and Azmat Hussain. Sunny is a shoeshiner from Punjab who sang an impeccable rendition of Nusrat Ali Khan's song Afreen Afreen. Judge Vishal Dadlani too was impressed with his rendition but made him sing another song in his own style. Listening to the young boy, Vishal encouraged him and gave the golden mic which is a ticket to the theatre round directly.
While Azmat Hussain was already a winner of a kid's singing reality show. He revealed that he was taken into bad habits and hence was still struggling in life. Azmat's voice was not up to the mark but he was given a chance by Neha Kakkar and Anu Malik to the next round. But to our surprise, he looked disturbed and felt it was a sympathy gesture by the judges and did not want to pursue singing further in life. At that time, Vishal stepped in and said that he is just 18 and too young to lose hope.
Vishal added that "we singers are one family and community and we need to be there for each other always. And as I am a senior to you in this family of singers, I order you to get up, buckle up and show your best in the next round." These words of encouragement not only increased the popularity of the show but also was much appreciated by his fans. With this gesture, Vishal Dadlani has proved that he is the best mentor and judge for singing talents on Indian television today.
