Known for her soulful renditions and amazing performances in Voice of India Chhote Ustaads, Aishwarya Majumdar is at her best as she talks her heart out. So here she is in conversation with the Telly Buzz team. Read on…
How has your experience on Chhote Ustaad been?
It is a great experience for me. I feel privileged
to be part of such a show and I don’t have words to describe my
feelings. I am having immense fun out here with all the other
Who is your toughest competitor?
All the participants are amazing in their own way.
But if I have to single out the toughest competitors, it would be
Anvesha and Soniya. They both possess unique and different voices.
There is a new concept being introduced in the show of bringing in an additional singer to challenge you’ll. What are your views on this concept?
It is a very good concept. And we have absolutely
no problem with a new challenger being introduced at this stage. We
have reached a stage where we all are confident of our voices and ready
to face any new challenge.
But there was news about all of you protesting against the entry of the challenger. Is it true?
Well we were a little upset with this new concept
to begin with. We had struggled quite a lot to reach to this level and
felt it was unfair that a new face was gaining entry directly to the
top six. But the whole concept of wearing a black wrist band and
protesting on the new entry was scripted and we were asked to do it.
So who is a tougher competition for you, your fellow participants or the new challenger?
All the participants for the challenger are very good. It is definitely going to be a tough competition now with a new face.
And who among the singers are capable of being the potential challenger and enter Chhote Ustaad?
Rigveda and Sanchita are very good singers.
It is usually seen in reality shows that the girls are the first ones to be eliminated; how does it feel being a potential candidate to win Chhote Ustaad?
Well the guys are definitely good singers, but I guess we are just better. And I am very proud to be a girl.
You recently sung a song in Dill Mill Gaye; how was that experience?
I sung a song for the main lead Riddhima. I felt very lucky to be a
part of Dill Mill Gaye because it is one of my favorite shows. I was
thrilled when offered this opportunity and informed Anvesha, who is my
best friend, and she encouraged me a lot.
What are your plans for the future, irrespective of whether you win or not?
The same as it has always been; to be a successful playback singer and sing for the leading ladies in Bollywood.
