~~**RUPREKHA FAN CLUB**~~
Mujhko wo sabse pyaari hai,
Mere dil ki raajkumari hai,
Kuchh sharmayi kuchh alsaayi si,
Uska roop sab per bhaari hai.
Uski hansi hai fuljhari si,
Uski chaal bari matwaali hai,
Wo nadaan bari,nasamajh bari,
Dil ko har baat lagane wali hai.
Tum soch rahe ,wo hai kaun
kya usme maine dekha hai,
Wo hai meri pyaari guriya,
Meri nanhi si Rooprekha hai.

The two unlikely winners of the stiffly-fought Fame Gurukul contest – Qazi Touqeer, the Kashmiri with a starry ambition of becoming an actor and Ruprekha Banerjee, the simple Bengali damsel – are ready to rock
Her Hindi accent was the butt of many a joke.... His flamboyant manners overshadowed his singing talent. Who would have thought that Ruprekha Banerjee and Qazi Touqeer would walk away as the victorious 'Fame Jodi', when there were so many other less-flawed singers in the running? But then, as the stiffly-fought Fame Gurukul contest, on Sony Entertainment Television, reached a crescendo, it was as much about melodious vocal chords as about the ability to withstand the tensions of its pressure-cooker atmosphere."I have inherited my fighting spirit from my parents," is the surprising revelation of the mishti-voiced Ruprekha. Nobody would have guessed there was so much steel beneath that soft demeanour! "I had a bishwas when I entered Fame Gurukul that I would be a part of the Fame Jodi," she adds, matter-of-factly. As matter-of-factly as she transformed from a simple Bengali damsel into a spaghetti-strapped glamour doll when the cameras rolled. Qazi, loved by his fans as much for his curly locks and warm, brown eyes as for the peppy numbers he crooned, was equally sure that he would be one half of the winning duo. With a "Nothing is impossible" as his signature line, he was the unfazed enfant terrible of Gurukul, the favourite punching bag whom nobody took seriously as a singer because of his starry ambition to be an actor. Nobody, except lakhs and lakhs of frenzied viewers who, time and again, rescued him from the 'danger zone'. "Everybody used to tell me that I didn't deserve to be in Fame Gurukul," recounts the youngster without rancour. "But, instead of breaking down, like a lot of the contestants, I would get goaded by such comments to work harder. I got stronger with each barb. And, finally, I proved them all wrong! Even the judges accepted me as a singer, with Shankar Mahadevanji, saying, 'This Fame Gurukul is all about Qazi.'"
Confidence, determination, tremendous zest and an unwavering focus on their goal saw these two handicap-ridden candidates battle it out, week after week, till that final moment of triumph, when Qazi lived up to his mother's implicit belief that he would come home a winner and Ruprekha made her father's

'Rooprekha fought with her sis at midnight '
Pradip Banerjee tells Zinia Sen that he always knew daughter Rooprekha would grow up to be a singer
• Who named your daughter ?
When Rooprekha was born, we used to call her Pinky. Then my uncle suggested that we should keep her name Rooprekha as she was very pretty as a child. I never looked for an alternative as I took an immediate liking for the name.
• Does she have a nickname?
Yes. Pinky is her nickname.
•Was she a naughty child?
Rooprekha was an obedient child. She was not naughty at all. But as a kid, she used to love watching television and would be glued to the screen even after getting snubbed by her mom. In school, she was a diligent student and I never got any complaint against her.
• How early did you recognise her talent?
My uncle is her closest pal and he used to always encourage her to sing. As a child she used to pose as a singer and would imagine her room to be an auditorium and would make the most of her vocal chords. I put her under the tutelage of a classical singer, who was our neighbour, when she was two and a half years old. When she was in school, she used to perform at all the functions and would win Rs 50 everytime she sang. In our neighbourhood we used to have Belgharia Utsav and Ariadaha Utsav. She always topped the auditions.
• Was she fussy about anything?
She was never fussy about food or clothes. Yes, she loved and still loves biryani.
•Did she fight with her sibling?
Rooprekha has an elder sister, Payel. They always keep fighting for no reason. Middle of the night they would start shouting and would only stop after their mom intervened. But now Payel is marrried.I miss their fights.
• Does she discuss her relationship problems with you?
Rooprekha is close to her mom and always discusses things with her. I have no inkling about her likings.
