Excerpts from the Interview:
You've become a youth icon among singing aspirants. Comment.
I had not noticed this until two years ago when Shaan told me many of the song contestants sang on Sa Re Ga Ma Pa were mine. Now, when I'm a judge, I realise contestants tend to sing my difficult songs like Tera jadoo chal gaya, Zindagi maut na ban jaye and Satrangi re. I've now begun to realise that good work always reaches people's hearts. So I just do my work.
I don't think the film industry is able to provide sufficient oppurtunities for me, So I have to create my own challenges. This year I have some great songs in Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna, Jaan-e-Man, Fanaah, Salaam-e-Ishq, Krisshh, Umrao Jaan and Don. But I miss the challenge I experience when I sing a classical song and I've to work on a particular harkat or alaap.
I'm doing too many things. I love the feeling of being in demand. I'm not passionate about anything except music. I'm blessed to have so much work. But I miss the glory attached to playback singing.
