Bollywood composer Anu Malik and singer Sadhna Sargam will judge the grand finale of 'Choona Hai Aasman,' a singing talent hunt show organised by Jammu and Kashmir Police under its Civic Action Programme (CAP).


"Anu Malik, Sadhna Sargam and popular local singer Waheed Jeelani will be the judges of the grand finale of 'Choona Hai Aasman' to be held on Saturday," ADGP (headquarters) SP Vaid told reporters here.

Vaid said more than one lakh aspirants participated in this year's edition of the talent hunt show, which was started in 2010 for nurturing the budding artistes of the state.

"The endeavour has been bringing good results and the winners of our state-level competitions have competed in some of the most popular reality shows at national level like 'Indian Idol', 'Sa Re Ga Ma Pa' and 'Bharat Ki Shaan'," he added.

SSP Israr Khan, who is the director of the programme, said Anu Malik and Sadhna Sargam will perform some of their hit songs live during the grand finale.

"As an encouragement, we will cut an audio album of thewinner which will be directed by music director Anand Milind. We are also in talks with Bollywood producer Ashok Thakeria for giving a playback singing opportunity to the winner of the contest," Khan added.
