It has been trending on the social media-verse ever-since!
Indian Idol runner-up Arunita Kanjilal is elated that this learning experience is living the dream of a lifetime. She averred, “I entered Indian Idol to learn and I have had an amazing time. Raj (Surani) sir, has been very kind and I want to leave an impact with the songs that we’re creating.”
Added Shanmukha Priya, “It was my childhood wish to be a part of Indian Idol. And during Indian Idol, we got the opportunity to actually work in the Maruti campaign, it was our first campaign, and truly inspirational to face the film camera. We were pampered by Raj (Surani) Sir and team. He encouraged and motivated us! I am truly looking forward to our musical series with Octopus Entertainment.”
Averred Raj Surani, “Pawandeep’s voice is pure and there is an inherent romantic in him that comes across through his singing. Arunita Kanjilal will soon be one of the most sought-after playback singers. Shankmukha Priya is a rockstar and a true performer.” Interestingly, while signing the trio a month ago, he was not worried about who the winner of Indian Idol was going to be before signing them. “I am going ahead with my music video soon after the season gets over,” he added, “All of them are great performers and all of them have a huge following even before they step into the world of music. I cannot resist but I truly feel the trio are the original Indian Rockstars of today.”
