Remember Vineet Singh -- Himesh Reshamiya's blue eyed boy from an earlier session of Sa Re Ga Ma. Don't be surprised if you see him stepping out of a flat in a posh Mumbai suburb and getting into a Honda City! The Lucknow lad is doing pretty well these days it seems!

His mentor, did keep his word and gave him a chance to sing in his last two films -- Nanhe
Jaisalmir and Good Boy Bad Boy. We got in touch with the young singer to find out what he is up to these days. "I think I have managed a toehold in the industry and am now trying to carve a niche for me. In another couple of months, my first solo album will be released." Obviously, the music of the album has been scored by Himesh Reshamiya.

"Himeshji is no more my guru. He is my elder brother and is helping me with everything," says the young lad from Lucknow. "My solo album will have six songs -- all with a different flavour, with the opening number being a sufi song."

There were rumours of Vineet going around with fellow contestant Himani. What is the element of truth in it? "If I ever have an affair in my life, I will let the whole world know about it! There will be nothing hush-hush.After my album is released, I will tell you about the new girl in my life," says Vineet with a smile.

Vineet has been following Sa Re Ga Ma this year and feels Aneek is the winner, though Raja is ahead in terms of popularity.

Like his mentor, Vineet is also keen on trying his luck in movies. "Just after Sa Re Ga Ma, there was this producer who approached Himani and me for a film! It did not work out finally." Vineet is considering hosting a musical show like Sa Re Ga Ma. "I was considered for the show that Aditya Narayan is hosting. Unfortunately due to some contractual issues, it did not materialise.".

The 19-year old teenager is planning to relocate his family from Lucknow to Mumbai. "They have supported me all this while, now it is my turn to pay them back."
