How did it feel when you learnt you were going to be eliminated?

I was a little sad when I got eliminated because I never expected it. But then it is a competition and there is only one winner. But the consoling fact was that I was eliminated because the judges felt that I made mistakes and deserved to be out. So I was fine with it.

How was your experience being a participant on Chhote Ustaad?

It was a great experience. I got to learn so much out here from the judges and the Gurus who train us. I have a great camaraderie with the other participants and had great fun together.

Now you have an opportunity to get back into the competition through wild card, what do you think are your chances of winning the wild card entry?

Well there are quite a few good singers other than me. My chances of winning the wild card are very slim right now, but if the decision is going to be made by the judges then I would say I have 50 percent chances of winning.

Who, according to you, has the strongest chances of winning the wild card?

According to me, Jayant is the strongest contender for the wild card. He is a very good singer and everyone was shocked when he was eliminated, so I think he has highest chance of winning.

There is a new challenger who has been introduced in Chhote Ustaad, so who do you think is more of a competition to you when you come back after wild card round, the present participants or the challenger?

I would say the present contestants, because they’ll have a two week lead over me in the competition, so they would have had more experience and practice than me.

And who has been your toughest competitor so far?

Umm… My toughest competitors would have to be Anvesha and Aishwarya. They have different and very powerful voices and are amazing singers.

And who has the highest chances of winning Chhote Ustaad?

Anvesha.

*Jaya* 13 years ago Areeb comes out as a very genuine and simple kid... No politically correct answers, always truthful... Perhaps thats what adds so much soul to his singing.... All the best to him :)

The wild card was more than expected, as its the case with all reality shows.. But somehow, I always feel that its not fair!
